"We scored two in the first inning, two more in the third inning, and it was huge," Miley said. "You get some support, and you just want to go out and get the offense back in the box as soon as possible."
"I was pretty upset at myself for going back out and not cleaning up the seventh," Miley said. "I wasn't really tired, but I got a little mad a couple of times and tried to overthrow a couple of times."
"I wasn't thinking, 'Oh it's bases loaded; I've got to go out there,'" Bell said. "It's just, I'm going out there and executing my pitches and trying to get Wade out of that jam."
"Heath did a great job," Miley said. "Bases loaded, one out, he got two huge strikeouts to keep the game where it was at. One big hit and it's 5-3 or 5-4, and it's a new ballgame. He did an outstanding job of picking me up right there."

In an era of the game tainted by PEDs and prima donnas with bad attidues making the headlines, Ichiro Suzuki is a breath of fresh air who is rather quietly creeping up on some significant career milestones.
The Dodgers most lose, always and forever. Okay, so maybe they didn't get that memo - I'll get right on sending them another copy, but their quest to continue dominating the game at the torrid level they are at may have just taken a hit.
