Dodgers (finally) 8, Rockies 7

The winning run scored on Russell Martin’s sac fly, plating Matt Kemp in the bottom of the 13th at 12:19 a.m. But the real hero for the Dodgers tonight was Chan Ho Park, who got over the fact he was passed over again for the fifth starter’s spot and turned in three shutout innings at a point when the slightest mistake could have led to disaster. He stranded two runners in scoring position during that time and fielded his position well, logging four assists. … Andruw left the game with a bruise and tightness in his left calf, Nomar left with a strained left calf. Nomar’s injury sounds serious, which probably means Blake DeWitt is on his way back to the majors. He doesn’t have to stay in the minors the minimum 10 days if Nomar goes on the DL. … Martin went 4 for 4 with two walks and was on base every time he came to the plate except for the last one, when he endd the game with that sac fly. … Dodgers go to 10-13 and pull even with the Rox for third place, seven behind the Snakes. Giants are 6 1/2 back.
