    Dozens of protesters
 killed in the bloodiest day
    of the Syrian uprising
    BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian security forces
fired bullets and tear gas Friday at tens of
thousands of protesters across the coun-
try, killing at least 75 people in the bloodi-

man and two boys ages 7 and 10, Amnes-

of Izraa, a man ran carrying the body of

book pace.

corpses through the streets. Mobile phone
images showed the bodies lined up on the

mosques after Friday’s noon Mus-
lim prayers, erupted in towns and cities
stretching along the breadth of the coun-
try, including in at least two suburbs of the

  Cubs fall to
 Dodgers, 12-2

                ASSOCIATED PRESS
    CHICAGO — Juan Uribe needed just
three games to make up for an awful start
to his first season with the Los Angeles
    Uribe hit a two-run homer, Andre Eth-
ier extended his major league-best hitting
streak to 19 games and the surging Dodg-
ers beat the Chicago Cubs 12-2 on Friday.
    Pinch-hitter Marcus Thames added
a two-run drive in the ninth as Los Ange-
les set season highs for runs and hits (14).
Matt Kemp and Ethier reached base three
times apiece, and A.J. Ellis contributed two
hits and two RBIs.
    Uribe also had a run-scoring single in
the Dodgers’ six-run third inning and a
sacrifice fly in the sixth, giving him nine
RBIs in his last three games and 12 this
year. He is batting .435 (10 for 23) in his
last six games after opening the year in a
.143 rut (7 for 49).

    “I feel real good right now,” he said.
“Before, I wasn’t hitting. Now, I’m helping
my team.”
    Chad Billingsley (2-1) made the most
of all that run support, pitching into the
seventh inning in his second straight sol-
id start. He also capped Los Angeles’ big-
gest inning of the year with an RBI single
for his first hit in 2011.
