Shit on a stick, really? Just when this team gets some momentum, having swept the D'backs, they roll into SF and puke up a game like this. The anticipated offensive fireworks didn't materialize; instead, Beckett and Lincecum each turned in five innings of ugly but effective pitching — Beckett somehow leaving the bases loaded in both the fourth and fifth innings — and the Dodgers held a 1-0 lead after five.
Withrow promptly entered in the sixth and gave up the tying run, aided by an error by Hanley. The Dodgers took the lead on a Justin Turner RBI in the seventh and wasted a Puig triple in the eighth, which of course turned out to be crucial because Kenley couldn't convert AGAIN, allowing the game to go into extras.
Jamey Wright out-highwired Beckett, stranding the bases loaded in the tenth and also pitching a scoreless eleventh. Then Donnie decided to trot out League, and you know what happened next.
Time of game: FOUR HOURS, 54 MINUTES. Number of ulcers created: too many to count.
