Jeff Kent had to run the instant he saw Washington's Austin Kearns move a step deeper into right field. And run he did, tagging up on teammate Shea Hillenbrand's fly ball and scoring on a play that was as close as the game itself, a 10-9 victory for the Dodgers over the Nationals on Wednesday that wasn't decided until Kent slid right of home plate and clear of catcher Jesus Flores to reach out and swipe it with his left hand in the bottom of the 12th inning. The victory was the fourth in a row for the Dodgers. Their three one-run wins over the Nationals marked their first series sweep since they took three from San Francisco in their first games out of the All-Star break.
