Hanley Ramirez Homers Leads To Win In Extras Over Giants

Hanley Ramirez stepped up big for the Los Angeles Dodgers in game one of the weekend series against the San Francisco Giants.

In the tenth inning of a 3-3 game, Ramirez hit a two out, two run home run that gave the Dodgers the win over the Giants in front of 41,681 not so happy fans. It was Ramirez’s first home run as a Dodger.

The Giants were down by two runs in the eighth inning when Brandon Belt singled to center that scored both Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan. Belt stole second but was stranded when Joaquin Arias struck out and Brandon Crawford grounded out.

With an one run lead, two outs in the fifth inning and the pitcher at bat, the San Francisco Giants seemed be coasting in Firday night’s game against their Rival the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Stephen Fife, who was pitching a good game of his own, settled into the batters box to face counterpart Matt Cain for a second time. He got a nice pitch to handle and was able to shoot it for a double and get his team’s bats going.

Jerry Hairston Jr. came through with the runner on scoring position. He also hit a double off Cain and scored the runner. Soon after, Mark Ellis gave the Dodgers the lead.

Matt Cain had a solid game, but it was not what is expected from a pitcher of his caliber. He gave up three runs in seven innings and was pinched it for in the lead off spot. He only totaled two strikeouts in the entire night while giving up nine hits. Fife pitched a similar game.

Going only 6.1 innings however, Fife still also only counted two strikeouts. He found himself in a jam in the second inning. With one out and the bases loaded, he was able to get Nate Schierholtz to line a ball off him the was deflected to the second baseman. Though they were unable to turn the double play and the run scored, they were able to get the out that helped get out of the jam.

The Dodgers extended their lead in the sixth inning with a James Loney single. Andre Ethier doubled and scored from third base.

The win pushes the Dodgers closer to the Giants in the Western standings. They are now only two games off of the lead. The two will take the diamond again Saturday at 1:00 pm PT.
