Greg Maddux pitched another great game for Los Angeles tonight. After allowing two hits in a scoreless first inning, Maddux took just 50 pitches to retire 21-straight batters. Tomko replaced Maddux in the ninth inning, with the game still scoreless, and Russell Martin's solo homer off Vinnie Chulk won the game for LA in the 10th.
In his home debut with the Dodgers on August 8, Maddux pitched six innings, surrendering two runs. Tomko was awarded the win for L.A. after pitching a scoreless seventh. Maddux’s first outing for the Dodgers was a six-inning hitless win against Cincinnati that was cut-short by a 46-minute rain delay.
Entering Sunday the Dodgers were holding a one-game lead in the NL West. Since joining the team Maddux has done his best to ensure they’ll contend. His aggregate line over the three starts (1-0): 20 IP, 9 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 9 K. The Dodgers have won each game he started.
