They both failed to capitalize!
With the erratic Oliver Perez on the mound, this figured to be an eminently winnable game for the Dodgers, but they just nibbled and didn't bite. The Dodgers received nine walks from the Mets but...
- 1st inning: Left men on first and third.
- 2nd inning: Left Matt Kemp at second.
- 3rd inning: Left bases loaded.
- 5th inning: Left men on first and second.
- 6th inning: Left men on first and third.
- 7th inning: Left Russell Martin on first.
- 9th inning: Left Blake at second.
- total: 12 men left on base
Hiroki Kuroda: 4 1/3 IP, 4R, 3 ER, 1K, 91 pitches.
Vote for Matt Kemp: 3-for-3, including a triple.
Manny Ramirez: 9th-inning home run off Francisco Rodriguez. The Dodgers have lost both post-suspension games in which Manny has homered.
