LOS ANGELES – Don’t know how long it will last, or how far into this game he can go, but Pedro Martinez is pitching a beauty here through five innings. He’s allowed two hits and has really kept the Dodgers off-balance with a variety of angles and speeds on his offspeed stuff. He’s also had a good fastball, throwing about 93 mph.
Ryan Howard’s solo homer to left field in the fourth has held up so far. Vicente Padilla is also pitching well for the Dodgers.
