Dodgers 10, Nats 9

Shea Hillenbrand came through with the sac fly with the bases loaded in the 12th. A good throw by Austin Kearns might have gotten Jeff Kent at the plate, but it was to the opposite side, and Jesus Flores couldn’t get the tag down. Kent went 4 for 5, Loney wnet 2 for 5 with four RBI, and Hillenbrand went 2 for 4 with three RBI. But the hero was Scott Proctor, who pitched three shutout innings, giving up a hit and a walk, and the last pitch he threw induced a HUGE GIDP from Robert Fick to end the top of the 12th after runners were on the corners with one out, and Proctor got the win after the Dodgers rallied. … Dodgers improve to 70-63. D-backs and Pods play at Petco tonight. If the Pods win, they’ll be tied for first with the D-backs, and the Dodgers will be just 3 1/2 back, with a three-game series of their own at Petco on tap beginning Friday. This thing is a long, long way from being over.
