The Dodgers win a series! For the first time since April 26-28! And we're still in last place in the NL West, and it was only the Marlins, but let me say it again: The Dodgers Win A Series!!!
Backed by the first HR of 2013 and second HR of his career from Scott Van Slyke (who also singled in another run later, AND made a great diving catch over the first base wall), the Dodgers jumped out to a 5-1 lead going into the ninth. Carl Crawford also had a RBI single, and Nick Punto and Andre Ethier each had a sacrifice fly.
But you can't spell Brandon League without a big "gue" at the end. League allowed two singles while getting only two out, and then gave up a two-run-scoring double to Adeiny Hechavarria to make it another Brandon League nail-biter. Finally, League got Greg Dobbs to ground to third for the final out.
You know what they say: Adeiny Hechavarria is always dangerous late. Wait, scratch that; I meant to write, Brandon League is always dangerous late. As a closer, that is. Whatever. Fish not withstanding, I'll take it.
