Best Dodgers news yet

Chad Billingsley only gave up one walk in seven innings last night. Perhaps the kid has turned the corner. He kept the Marlins off the scoreboard, allowed them just three hits and struck out nine. Grady Little:

We're very proud of what Chad was able to do out there. He was in complete control from the first pitch of the game. He's not the finished product yet, but he's going to be around here for a long time.

After Billingsley came out for a pinch hitter, the Dodgers erupted for four runs and made him a winner. They now have won 17 0f 18, the franchise's best stretch since 1899.
