KEY MOMENT: The Dodgers were ahead, 3-2, until a rare meltdown by setup man Brian Wilson in the eighth inning. Wilson had not given up a run in 18 of his previous 19 appearances, but he started the inning by walking the first two batters. Wilson struck out Yan Gomes, but then gave up a run-scoring single to pinch-hitter Daniel Murphy that tied the score, 3-3. The hit was compounded by an error by left fielder Matt Kemp, who threw the ball to third base instead of cut-off man Juan Uribe, the shortstop. The third baseman, Carlos Triunfel, had his back to Kemp, which allowed Carlos Santana to advance to third base and Murphy to second. Wilson intentionally walked Lonnie Chisenhall, which set up a two-run single by Mike Aviles that moved the Indians in front, 5-3.
AT THE PLATE: Andre Ethier was two for four with a two-run double and a walk. Hyun-Jin Ryu had two hits, including a fifth-inning double that drove in the Dodgers' first run. In the eighth inning, Scott Van Slyke hit his seventh home run of the season. Van Slyke's solo shot reduced the Dodgers' deficit to 5-4.
ON THE MOUND: Ryu delivered another solid start, limiting the Indians to two runs and seven hits over seven innings. This was the second consecutive start for Ryu in which he completed seven innings. Chris Perez pitched a perfect ninth inning.
FOR THE RECORD BOOKS: With Ryu walking no batters, Dodgers starting pitchers have walked two or fewer batters in the last 36 games. That ties the longest single-season streak in baseball since 1900, according Elias. The only team to match the feat was the 2005 Minnesota Twins.
UP NEXT: Zack Greinke (10-4, 2.78 earned-run average) will face the Colorado Rockies and Franklin Morales (4-4, 5.75) on Thursday at 5 p.m. PDT in the first game of a four-game series at Coors Field. On the air: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020 (Spanish).Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
