Well, imagine that, we did in fact get the sweep! It was a close one in the nightcap, with the Dodgers battling back from a 1-0 deficit in the sixth on a Juan Uribe RBI single to tie the game at 1, as well as in the seventh when Adrian Gonzalez homered to left to tie it at 2.
But the home runs really were clutch in the 12th, when
Andy Scott Van Slyke hit a solo shot to leadoff the inning, and Drew Butera added a HR with two out to make it 4-2. The Dodgers gave one back in the bottom of the 12th when Kenley Jansen (who really, really needs a rest) let one run score on a sacrifice fly, making it 4-3. But Jansen shut down Trevor Plouffe and Chris Colabello to preserve the victory and earn the Dodgers a sweep in Minnesota.
Red Patterson went 4.2 IP over 87 economical pitches, but Jamey Wright notched the victory with three innings of one-hit, scoreless ball; Jansen got his 11th save. And what about errors? Two more (Uribe, throw; Brandon League, throw). Try and catch us now, Nationals!
