A.J. Ellis continued to swing a hot bat, launching a solo homer to center to center the deficit in half, 3-2 through five.

After a 1-2-3 inning from Anderson, Turner hit a two-out single, his third hit of the game. The Brewers then brought in left-hander Neal Cotts who struck out Joc Pederson to end the inning.

Anderson again retired the side in the seventh, putting him at eight straight batters retired to end his day. The Dodgers then had two runners reach base in the bottom of the seventh, but weren’t able to score as Rollins flew out to end the inning.

Pedro Baez came into the game in the eighth and picked up where Anderson left off, needing just 11 pitches to retire the Brewers in order. The bottom of the eighth start with a single up the middle by Howie Kendrick, who was hustling all the way out of the box and ended up on second base when Gomez bobbled the ball in center.

Adrian Gonzalez followed by hitting a two-run homer to right, giving the Dodgers a 4-3 lead, their first lead of the game. Pederson then doubled to right with one out, bringing up Yasiel Puig to face former Dodger Jonathan Broxton. The big righty got Puig to groundout and struck Ellis out, so the Dodgers were not able to tack on any insurance runs heading into the ninth.

Kenley Jansen came in and shut the door in the top of the ninth to give the Dodgers the victory.
