Dodgers Pound Giants, 9-1

Tonight's game was about Randy Wolf and the Dodger outfield, with a cameo from a well-rested James Loney, as the Dodgers used two big innings to hammer the Giants in game two of the series at AT&T Park.

Randy Wolf pitched his longest outing as a Dodger, allowing only three singles and a walk.  Giving up only one run, he didn't need a ton of support to pick up his sixth win, but boy did he get it.

Andre Ethier smacked two doubles among his three hits, scoring twice while driving in two runs.  James Loney, after two days starting on the bench, broke out of his one-for-20 slump with two hits and a walk.

But the game was broken open in the seventh inning, thanks to Manny Ramirez and Matt Kemp:

1) Ethier singled to left

2) Manny homered to left, Ethier scored

3) Casey Blake walked

4) James Loney singled to center, Blake to second

5) Kemp homered to center, Loney and Blake scored

Kemp and Ethier are now tied for the club lead in RBI at 75.  Kemp has 25 RBI in 25 games since the All-Star break, and with back-to-back games with at least three RBI he has joined Ethier as the only Dodgers to do that.

Tim Lincecum looms tomorrow, but the Dodgers are full of confidence after the first two games of the series.  Jeff Weaver will start the house money game, followed by new callup Charlie Haeger, who knuckled his way to a fine season in the Pacific Coast League.

WP - Randy Wolf (6-6):  8 IP, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts

LP - Joe Martinez (2-1):  4.1 IP, 7 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 3 walks, 2 strikeouts
