Jamey Wright Saves Dodgers in Win Over Giants
It was Scott Van Slyke who got a towel full of shaving cream to the face while he stood at his locker fielding questions from reporters after the game, that towel courtesy of Aaron Harang after Van Slyke began his major league career with a pinch-hit, RBI single in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 7-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. It was Tony Gwynn who had the big hit, a three-run, pinch-hit triple off two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum who, by the way, is now winless in his past six starts against the Dodgers to turn a one run deficit into a two-run lead and put the Dodgers in front. All those pinch hitting heroics aside, though, it was Jamey Wright who was the quiet hero for the Dodgers in this one, the veteran right-hander bouncing back from a horrific outing Sunday in Chicago in which he issued a walkoff, bases-loaded walk. This time, following an all too typical, all-too-brief start by Chad Billingsley, Wright gave the Dodgers just what they needed: two perfect innings, three strikeouts and not a single ball hit out of the infield.
