The Dodgers got a three-run home run from A.J. Ellis in the eighth inning to break a tie, but gave it all back in the bottom of the inning, then lost to the Athletics in extra innings in walk-off fashion in Oakland.
A.J. Ellis hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning, but the Dodgers bullpen blew that lead immediately, then allowed a run in the 10th to lose their series opener against the Athletics in Tuesday night in Oakland.
With three off days in a span of eight days and wanting to maximize starts for Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, the Dodgers will move Mat Latos to the bullpen for the next 10-11 days, skipping two starts.
