The Dodgers let Matt Cain skate through a seven-pitch first inning before getting him squarely on the ropes. After scoring two runs in the second inning off a Juan Uribe bases-loaded double, to take a 2-1 lead in the game, it was a pivotal third inning which broke the game open.
Uribe also got a low fastball in the seventh inning and stroked that for a two-run HR to left, giving him a career-high 7 RBI on the night and putting the Dodgers up 10-1. The Dodgers went on to have 13 or more hits for their fifth straight game.
In bad news, Matt Kemp seemed to strain his left shoulder on a swing in the second inning, and worked a walk before being replaced by Carl Crawford in the third. He's got shoulder irritation. Which is better than what must be going through Bruce Bochy's stomach lining right now. Maybe Don Mattingly has some Zantac he hasn't used lately, which he could offer?
