Dodgers Squeezed Out Of Wild Game By Bowa Constrictor

Down 3-2 with Reed Johnson on first base with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, Scott Podsednik lofted a pop fly single just out of the reach of a diving Dexter Fowler, who recovered to throw to Troy Tulowitzki, who delivered a seed to home plate and Johnson was out by about 20 feet.

Maybe someone should yell at third base coach Larry Bowa for a change. Look, there were a lot of reasons for the loss tonight, but it might be nice for the chronic blamer to get some of his own medicine.

The Dodgers scored their first run with the benefit of two wild pitches from Jason Hammel in the first inning.

The Rockies scored their last run with the benefit of three wild pitches from Octavio Dotel in the 10th inning.

Dotel became the second Los Angeles Dodger reliever ever to have three walks and three wild pitches in the same game, joining Fred Norman, who turned the trick (with four wild pitches) against the Cubs on August 14, 1970.

WP - Rafael Betancourt (3-1):  2 batters, 2 strikeouts

LP - Octavio Dotel (2-3):  1 IP, 1 run, 3 walks, 3 wild pitches, 2 strikeouts

Sv - Huston Street (9):  1 IP, 2 hits, 1 strikeout
