Death Of One Thousand Paper Cuts; Dodgers, Ely Lose

These members of the U.S. Marine Corps - saluting during the national anthem - looked much sharper than John Ely did tonight.

John Ely was pestered by eight Florida singles (and one double), allowing all six Marlins runs in 2 2/3 innings.  The Dodgers scored in four different innings and Jeff Weaver and Ronald Belisario combined for 6 1/3 innings of one-hit relief, the latter throwing three innings in an economical 26 pitches, but Los Angeles could not overcome the deficit and fell 6 - 5.

In the eighth inning, an RBI double by James Loney plated Andre Ethier who had walked and put the tying run in scoring position, but Russell Martin's sharp comebacker to the mound was knocked down by ex-San Diego Padre Clay Hensley who easily threw to first to end the inning.

Non all-star shortstop Rafael Furcal hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning off winning pitcher Nate Robertson.

WP - Nate Robertson (6-6):  6 IP, 7 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 1 walk, 2 strikeouts

LP - John Ely (4-6):  2 2/3 IP, 9 hits, 6 runs (5 earned), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts

S - Leo Núñez (18): 1 IP, 0 hits, 0 runs 0 walks, 1 strikeout
