Dodgers flat in Anaheim
Luis Gonzalez hit his 552nd career double and scored on Russell Martin's double in the fourth inning, but the Dodgers were unable to mount a rally while Brad Penny struggled. Penny allowed a season-high eight runs on eight hits over five innings en route to his first loss of the season.
