Alex Guerrero legged out an infield single with one out in the third inning, but came up lame and was removed with a left calf strain. Jimmy Rollins entered as a pinch runner, and the Dodgers went on to load the bases with two outs. However, Adrian Gonzalez was unable to capitalize and the score remained 10-0 in the Diamondbacks’ favor.
Yimi Garcia allowed a one-out single in the third, but managed to throw the first scoreless inning on the night for the Dodgers. Jim Johnson entered in the fourth and was hurt by a Justin Turner throwing error that allowed Owings to reach with one out.
Tomas followed with a base hit to put runners on the corners for Ahmed, who hit an RBI double to give the Diamondbacks an 11-0 lead. Joel Peralta worked around an Inciarte leadoff single in the bottom of the fifth by proceeding to strikeout the side. Enrique Burgos walked Turner to open the sixth inning and later put Seager on base with two outs.
However, the Diamondbacks’ shutout remained intact as Ellis flied out to end the inning. Ian Thomas entered in the bottom of the sixth and gave up a two-out double to Ahmed, followed by an RBI single to Peter O’Brien. Thomas then tossed a scoreless seventh inning, though the Dodgers’ deficit remained a daunting 12-0.
Justin Ruggiano hit a grand slam with two outs in the ninth, but there wouldn’t be any comeback as the Dodgers lost, 12-4.
