Clayton Kershaw had a great day and Ricky Nolasco had a bad day, and the Dodgers surprisingly took the series from the second-place team in the NL East. Kershaw fanned 10 and had his second career CG shutout; he also went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI (his fourth career RBI). Nolasco ceded a franchise-high 15 hits through five innings, and was left out to dry given the Marlins' use of five pitchers the night prior. Rafael Furcal had a two-run HR and went 3-for-5 with 3 RBI; Andre Ethier and Jay Gibbons also had three-hit games.
Matt Kemp and Don Mattingly were thrown out in the fourth inning after squandering a bases-loaded, one out situation, but hey, why focus on the bad? The Dodgers Won A Series! I'll take it!
