Who are you, Dan Haren? After pulling away for the title of "worst starting regular pitcher" for most of the season, Haren has suddenly thrown two consecutive QualityStart™s, and against good teams: the Angels and today the Barves. Mike Minor was saddled with the loss.
Down the stretch, Haren had help from a stable of relievers, including Wilson, Howell, League and Kenley. Offensively, Puig and Kemp contributed RBIs, but the Dodgers rode the bat and legs of Darwin Barney, who had a second-inning RBI and also created an insurance run in the eighth in a sequence that included an error and a wild pitch.
Dodgers for the win! Giants remain mired in second place. Good show!
