Dodgers Win Worth Waiting For

New, 19 comments

Hiroki Kuroda was great after a shaky start, retiring 17 straight batters before being relieved, and the Dodgers won in walk-off fashion thanks to James Loney, making the third True Blue LA Night a victorious one, keeping our perfect record intact.

Thanks to everyone for showing up; we had a great time. Matt Kemp was robbed of a grand slam on a great catch by Mike Morse, but the Dodgers managed to score two runs instead of one thanks to Adam Kennedy throwing the ball to nobody with a glove at first base. That was the extent of the Dodgers offense, until the 10th inning, that is.

The 10th inning not only provided James Loney's second walk-off hit since the All-Star break, but also gave us a glimpse of the five-man infield, deployed briefly by Jim Riggleman's Nationals.

Jonathan Broxton got the win, pitching the final two scoreless innings, ending his night with a thrilling strikeout of Ryan Zimmerman to set the stage for Loney's (and Ronnie Belliard's, and Scott Podsednik's) heroics.
