Kershaw took the mound for the top of the eighth, but was removed after a leadoff double by Polanco. Chris Hatcher came in and got one out before walking McCutchen to put runners on the corners. Aramis Ramirez delivered an RBI double to make it 3-2. Hatcher ended the inning without any more runs.
The Dodgers went down quietly in the bottom of the eighth. Yimi Garcia took the mound for the top of the ninth. He got the first two outs and then gave way to J.P. Howell, who tossed one pitch for the third out.
