Scott Van Slyke had a walkoff pinch-hit HR with Mark Ellis aboard and one out in the bottom of the 11th, nailing a 1-0 Josh Collmenter pitch just inside the left field foul pole. Wow.
The Dodgers got two in the second inning thanks to a Miguel Montero throwing error on an Edinson Volquez bunt, and then a Yasiel Puig force out RBI. Arizona got one back in the fourth and took a 3-2 lead in the fifth, off a Didi Gregorius HR. Andre Ethier doubled in Hanley Ramirez in the bottom of the fifth to tie it.
Volquez went 6.0 IP with 4 H and 3 ER, 1 BB and 5 Ks. Not a bad outing for a pickup dueling for the fifth starter slot. Paco Rodriguez, Ronald Belisario, Kenley Jansen, JP Howell, and Chris Withrow all combined for scoreless innings to hold down the fort, giving Van Slyke the opportunity to get ready.
And so it went to extra innings, where Van Slyke's heroics ended it. Magic number drops to six. And the magic seems like it's coming back...
