Post-Game 28 Thread: Dodgers Stay On Target (Field)


Despite the Twins getting to Dan Haren early for two runs in the first (Jason Kubel, two-run single to left, that was benefitted by errors by both Carl Crawford and Miguel Olivo), the Dodgers rallied to retake the lead in the second and didn't look back after that. Dee Gordon had an RBI FC followed by a Yasiel Puig double to make it 3-2 through 1.5 innings. Matt Kemp and Juan Uribe each had an RBI in the third to make it 5-2 Dodgers. Uribe, Olivo, and Crawford all had RBI in the 7th to make it 8-4 Dodgers, and then Olivo snuck in a sacrifice fly to left to score Andre Ethier and make it 9-4 in the ninth.

All in all, 15 hits for the Dodgers, while Haren went 6.2 IP and gave up 6 H and 4 R, 3 ER, 7Ks with 3 BBs. Haren's depth into the seventh allowed us to save our bullpen for the second game of the doubleheader this evening. If not for adding three more errors to our season tally of 29 errors (leading the majors; Gordon had a throwing error to add to the other two), this would be a pretty good win. Now, if we could only win the night game and notch the sweep...
