The San Diego-Arizona score went up as a final in the top of the seventh inning, literally about five seconds before Andy LaRoche grounded sharply to second to end the inning and strand runners on second and third. LaRoche was hitting for Chan Ho Park, who had been dazzling over six innings, allowing a run on three hits with seven strikeouts. On came the bullpen, and out went the game. Giants scored four in the bottom half, and the Dodgers whiffed (11 times in the game) at a chance to take over the division lead. They fall to 42-45 and stay a half-game behind the slumping Snakes. Dodgers now have to go at least 6-2 the rest of the way to be .500 (48-47) by the All-Star break.
