...and that's the inning. ...and that's the inning. ...and that's the inning. ...and that's the inning.

Juan makes the third out four times in this game, finally leaving the bases loaded in the 8th. The Dodgers won 5-3, but it was a closer game than it needed to be.

Five flyball outs. Come on.

1. Flied to left. #115.
2. Flied to left. On the first pitch. Against a very shaky Willis, who had, to that pitch, walked four and thrown as many balls as strikes. As the third out of the inning (man on first). #116 -- but oh, it feels like so much more.
3. Flied to center. Again, the third out (man on second). #117.
4. Juan's up. Rick tells the world about Dontrelle's quote that "Fans in LA will appreciate Juan's game by the All-Star Game." Humma says, "Only if pigs are flying by the all-star break." Juan pops to center, making the third out (man on second) for the third time this game. #118.
5. They walk Furcal to load the bases with two outs. Juan swings at the first pitch. Flies to left. Leaves three. #119.

Pace: 567 outs. Back on record pace.
