Billingsley goes distance
Dodgers 10, Astros 2
Jeff Kent slides in safely to score on a wild pitch in the fourth. (David J. Phillip/AP)
 Loney's three-run homer
Chad Billingsley threw his first career complete game, allowing five hits, while improving to 7-0 on the year. Billingsley got plenty of support, as Jeff Kent went 4-for-4 and fellow former Astro Luis Gonzalez drove in three runs. Rafael Furcal scored twice, and James Loney hit a three-run homer.
