All even

The M’s just tied it in the fifth with two more off Dice-K.

Both pitchers have been awful.

The M’s scored thanks to another walk by Dice-K to Raul Ibanez which led to a single by Richie Sexson and an RBI single by Jose Guillen. After Kenji Johjima made the second out, Yunelsky Betancourt singled to shortstop, a ground ball that he beat out on a high throw by Julio Lugo.

All tied up at 7.

The line on Horacio Ramirez: 4 innings, 7 runs, 11 hits, three walks and four strikeouts. He’s out of there, replacing him is Julio Mateo in the fifth.
