Chad Billingsley(I like to call him Pitbull) pitched a beauty of a game tonight as he shut out the Padres, 6-0. I just wish Don Mattingly would have let Chad finish the game. I think he could’ve had the complete game. He had 11 strikeouts in less than 110 pitches and had retired the last 16 batters. Chad ‘Pitbull’ Billingsley looked like a dog on a mission. He seem very confident on the mound and did a great job and mixing his pitches.
The game of baseball has changed dramatically. No longer do we see pitchers be allow to complete games since managers tend to focus more on their pitch count. I understand the logic behind it but sometimes managers have to put logic aside and let the players perform.
The Dodgers are looking good so far, we will see how they do tomorrow.
