Former Dodger Dan Haren was red all right, after giving up 11 hits and 6 ER to the Dodgers across 4.1 innings. But the Marlins' Brad Hand followed Haren and added five more earned runs, stoking an 11-run, 21-hit parade by Los Angeles, who cruised to victory over the middle innings.
Andre Ethier went 5-for-5 with 3 RBI. Howie Kendrick went 4-for-5 with an RBI. Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero each had three hits. This allowed Mike Bolsinger to cruise to his first win (1-0) despite lasting only 5.2 innings. We have secured this series, no matter what happens tomorrow.
Former Dodger Dee Gordon went 0-for-4.
