John Ely wouldn't have walked Eddie Gaedel (@TrueBlueLA)
Despite giving up a first inning walk to Brandon Inge, John Ely continued to impress. After a rocky start, he settled down and scattered 8 hits- 3 of which came in the first inning. He went a total of 6 innings while walking 1 and giving up only 2 first inning runs.
It is looking more and more like Ely is sewing up a permanent position on our starting pitching staff.
BTW, the Dodger won to give Ely his third win in a row. Kemp and Casey Blake hit homers, and DeWitt knocked in two with a triple in the fourth inning.
First place feels mighty good.
