PHOENIX -- Ricky Nolasco has been nearly untouchable lately, and he's not talking about it. "I don't say anything," the Florida pitcher said after a 5-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. "I let my actions speak." Nolasco (13-7) gave up three hits and struck out 10 over 7 1/3 innings, and Josh Willingham went three for four with a home run and two runs batted in to help the Marlins take two of three from the National League West leaders. Florida moved within five games of the first-place New York Mets in the NL East.

With first base open and the National League's 10th-leading run producer at the plate, Dodgers Manager Grady Little said that yes, he considered having Derek Lowe walk Josh Willingham in the ninth inning Thursday. "The game dictated to do that," he said. "But with that pitcher on the mound, he makes a living preying on hitters' aggressiveness. That's what he was trying to do right there. "He just misfired on one pitch. And that was it."
