Bottom 9th: LA Dodgers

- D. Weathers relieved B. Bray
- E. Encarnacion at third
- R. Martin singled to shortstop, R. Martin to second on shortstop P. Janish's throwing error
- J. Kent grounded out to second, R. Martin to third
- J. Loney intentionally walked
- M. Kemp intentionally walked
, J. Loney to second
- B. DeWitt singled to left, R. Martin scored, J. Loney to third, M. Kemp to second

If you can't trust your pitcher to pitch to EITHER of Loney or Kemp why is he pitching?
(Yeah yeah I know it's Dusty, but still....)

Those two actually make a ton of sense. Tie game in the bottom of the 9th with a runner on 3rd and one out I would load the bases everytime even if it meant bringing A-Rod to the plate with the bases loaded. Dusty even had the bonus that he was walking the #5 and #6 hitter.
