Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
• Summary: Dodgers starter David Wells got his revenge against one of his old teams. Wells, who pitched for the Padres earlier this season, had two hits at the plate to go along with allowing three runs, four hits and striking out three over six innings.
• One streak rolls on: Greg Maddux saw his five-game win streak come to an end, but his walkless streak extended to 57 2/3 innings.
• Page in history: Wells, 44, became the oldest player to get his first multihit game since 45-year-old Sachel Paige did it in 1952.
• Unsung hero: The Dodgers' Rafael Furcal scored three runs and had three stolen bases.
• Hunt For October: The Dodgers moved to within 1 1/2 games of the Padres for the NL wild-card lead.
• Quotable: "Boomer has a lot of self-confidence. There's nothing he can't do if he puts his mind to it. He's the kind of pitcher who can step it up a notch when he has to." -- Maddux on Wells
