Unexpectedly, Dee Gordon hit a home run tonight — off Max Scherzer. Unexpectedly, Dan Haren outpitched Scherzer. Unexpectedly, Kenley Jansen blew the save. Unexpectedly, Joba Chamberlain struck out the side in the bottom of the ninth. Unexpectedly, the Dodgers rallied in extras to beat an AL team.
Tonight's walkoff hero was Carl Crawford, whose 10th-inning RBI double drove in Chone Figgins. Game 2 (of 2) is tomorrow, followed by another off-day. Can we retroactively apply all this rest to Clayton Kershaw's aching back?
