Anyway, it wasn't like I thought Lilly would be bad, but I certainly never dreamed he would be this good. I tip my embarrassed hat to him.
Dodgers 2, Rockies 0. Nine innings, two hits, two walks, 11 strikeouts and no runs for Lilly, his third career shutout (first since 2004) on 110 pitches.
Reed Johnson's two-run homer, his first of the season, gave Lilly the chance at the win.
