Clayton Kershaw was solid but not spectacular, allowing three runs over six innings. However, the Marlins had baserunners in every inning, and it was that sixth inning that was the most painful to watch.
With two out, Emilio Bonafacio hit a bloop to shallow right that Andre Ethier had a slight chance to catch. But Orlando Hudson was clearly trying to re-create his spectacular third-inning catch in the same area, so Ethier pulled up short. Hudson missed, moving a runner to third. Then Kershaw wild-pitched in a run, and Hudson made a brainfart throwing error on Wes Helms' infield single, giving the Marlins another run.
The Dodgers tied it up at 3-3, but with two out in the seventh, James McDonald allowed a single and a walk and Brent Leach allowed an RBI single to Jeremy Hermida. And in the eighth, after allowing a Chris Coghlan home run (he must not have enjoyed his role in our latest PCS puzzle), Ramon Troncoso gave up, that's right, a two-out RBI single to Jorge Cantu.
Two-out runs scored by the Marlins: four.
Credit to Josh Johnson, who got the win by limiting the Dodgers to three runs over seven innings. Hiroki Kuroda versus Rick VandenHurk tomorrow. VandenHurk. VandenHurk.
