Penny returns, leads Dodgers to victory

Aug 9, 2008 - 5:09 AM SAN FRANCISCO (Ticker) -- Brad Penny pitched five strong innings in his return to the mound, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday.

Penny (6-9), who had been out since June 15 with tendinitis in his right shoulder, allowed jone run, one hit and three walks, throwing 76 pitches - 44 strikes - to earn his first win since May 2.

The 30-year-old righthander surrendered a RBI double to Giants catcher Bengie Molina in the first inning, but the Dodgers countered as Jeff Kent stroked a three-run double in the third after Danny Ardoin launched a solo homer earlier in the frame.

Casey Blake added a solo home run of his own in the sixth - his second blast since being acquired by Los Angeles from the Cleveland Indians on July 26.
