Wow, I got the time of the GT all mixed up, meaning I missed seeing Clayton Kershaw's dominating start (7.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB and 8 Ks), as well as the Pirates' Travis Snider's game-tying HR (off of new closer Kenley Jansen) in the bottom of the ninth to send it to extras.
The Dodgers took the lead in the 11th off of an Andre Ethier leadoff double, a Mark Ellis sacrifice, and a Juan Uribe single. Nick Punto added a double to score Uribe and make it 5-3, the final score. (Old closer Brandon League had a very shaky
ninth eleventh to eke out the win.)
Meanwhile, the Giants lost. We move to a single-digit number under .500. I'll take it.
