What a night for L.A. sports fans. First, congrats to the Kings, who are headed to the Stanley Cup Finals! Only four more wins to go!
A few miles away at Chase Field, Aaron Harang dug a hole early, allowing five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings. It was 6-1 going into the seventh when the Dodgers exploded for five runs (aided by two Diamondback errors) to tie it up. Josh Lindblom coughed up a go-ahead solo home run to Lyle Overbay, but Ivan De Jesus hit a two-out, two-RBI double in the top of the ninth to put the Dodgers ahead for good.
Kenley Jansen squeaked out the save, and the Dodgers' win streak is at six as they move to 30-13 and stay seven games ahead of the Giants. Exhale!
