Dodgers Can't Hang On in Extras
The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the San Francisco Giants 4-2 in 10 innings, but still took the series two games to one. Tim Lincecum was nails, allowing only one run in eight innings of work before going into the ninth. After Rafael Furcal singled and tagged up to second, Andre Ethier singled him home with two out to tie the game at two runs apiece. The match entered extra innings, and Guillermo Mota surrendered a two-run homer to Juan Uribe that ended the game. The Dodgers had only four hits, two coming from Ethier. Juan Pierre tripled and scored a run, and Rafael Furcal had the only other hit and RBI. Freddy Sanchez had two hits, a run scored, and an RBI for the Giants.
