Top of the ninth. White Sox 3, Dodgers 2. Little-used Russ Mitchell up. White Sox de facto closer Sergio Santos pitching — he of the 20 straight scoreless innings. Two out, Dodgers almost down to their last strike. Game over, right?
Nope. Mitchell socks a game-tying home run (!), the Dodgers add three more runs (!!) in the top of the tenth (including a James Loney RBI double (!!!)), and Don Mattingly uses three pitchers to close it out.
Matt Kemp's two-run homer in the first kept the Dodgers in the game, and the only negative news from tonight's game is that Juan Uribe left in the seventh with a strained hip flexor. After all, it wouldn't be a Dodger game without another injury.
