Ninth Inning Balk Spurs Dodgers Victory
Manny Ramirez added his fourth homerun of the season and Rafael Furcal and Matt Kemp both doubled. Kemp paced the offense by going 3/4 with a stolen base.
The Dodgers trailed until the 8th inning when a Kelly Johnson error allowed two runs to score. In an unusual conclusion to the match up, Esmerling Vasquez balked in the Casey Blake giving the Dodgers a walk off victory and bestowing Jonathan Broxton with his third win of the season.
Notes From The Dugout:
Andre Ethier returned for the first time since breaking his pinkie on May 15th. Ethier went 0-4, but did not strike out.
Billingsley's 11 strikeouts mark the second time he has fanned at least ten Diamondbacks. He did not get the win in either contest.
