The BABIP beast did indeed bite John Ely today, as he allowed his first home run of the season in the fifth inning, to Martin Prado. Three batters later, he allowed his second homer of the season, to Brian McCann. But the Dodgers got Ely off the hook for the loss in the bottom of the inning, coming up with three runs off Tim Hudson to tie the game at four. That's the way it stayed until the 11th, when Russell Martin walked, Blake DeWitt moved him over and A.J. Ellis singled in the winning run.
Good news, too, for the bullpen: Miller, Kuo, Weaver, Broxton and Belisario combined for six scoreless innings. Dodgers get the split against the NL East's hottest team. Bring on the Cards!
