Billingsley rallies himself, Dodgers rally to victory
Chad Billingsley needed 31 pitches to get his first out today, but only 84 pitches to get the next 20 outs. His own personal rally cap led to a seven-inning, 10-strikeout, two-hit performance in the Dodgers' 3-1 victory over Washington today. Tony Jackson has more at ESPNLosAngeles.com.
Billingsley had a day to remember, while Albuquerque's Tim Sexton had a night to forget. Forced to take one for the team because of a pitching shortage, Sexton was charged with 16 runs in five innings of a 17-9 Isotopes loss to New Orleans.
