Monday's Babelicious Scoreboard

Look at Boomer go!
Less than a month after being cut by the San Diego Padres, David Wells (6-8, 5.46 ERA) pitched five good innings in his brand spankin' new Los Angeles Dodgers uni Sunday night. He allowed 2 runs on 7 hits with two strikeouts -- walking three -- as his new club beat the New York Mets 6-2 to avoid the three-game sweep.

The surly, 44-year-old lefty became the oldest pitcher to start for the Dodgers since the club moved to the West Coast in 1958 and even bunted for a hit to lead off the fifth.
"It felt weird out there but I've been doing this for a long time... It's a big game, gimme the ball," Boomer said of his first start with his new ball club.
David Wright drove in the only 2 Mets runs on Sunday night.David Wright doubled twice and drove in the only two New York runs.

Mets starter John Maine (13-8, 3.68 ERA) gave up six runs -- three earned -- on nine hits in 5.2 innings with a walk and six K's.

Juan Pierre and Matt Kemp each had two hits and two RBIs for the Dodgers while Rafael Furcal went 3-for-4 with two runs scored.

New York is sitting comfortably at 6 games ahead in the NL East over the Philadelphia Phillies and seven over the Atlanta Braves.

The Dodgers are fourth in the NL West, 6.5 games behind the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks, but just 3.5 within the wild card-leading Padres.

His bunted base hit was hilariously awesome.
