Brandon McCarthy has historic day

Brandon McCarthy became first pitcher in MLB history to allow four home runs with no walks and 10 strikeouts

Dodgers 6, Seattle 5 (10 innings)

KEY MOMENT: Alex Guerrero singled home Andre Ethier with two out in the 10th inning, the first walk-off hit of the rookie's career. Ethier, in his only at-bat of the game, doubled to start the 10th. After Yasiel Puig grounded out, two walks, the first intentionally to Adrian Gonzalez, the other not intentionally to Howie Kendrick, loaded the bases for Carl Crawford. He struck out but Guerrero delivered a two-strike single.

AT THE PLATE: After Puig grounded out in the first inning, he had three hits in 23 at-bats this season. He then had three hits in his next three at-bats, including a home run, raising his batting average from .130 to .231. Nelson Cruz hit two of the Mariners' four home runs. Cruz, who led the major leagues with 40 home runs last season for the Baltimore Orioles, has four this season, second in the majors to the five hit by Gonzalez.

ON THE MOUND: Brandon McCarthy became the first pitcher in major league history to give up four home runs with no walks and 10 strikeouts. McCarthy has faced 51 batters this season and given up six home runs, most in the major leagues. He also leads the majors in strikeouts with 19, in 12 innings. Rookie Yimi Garcia worked a perfect 10th inning, striking out two, for his first major league victory.

EXTRA BASES: Left-hander David Huff was called up from triple-A Oklahoma City for a spot start Tuesday in place of injured Hyun-Jin Ryu. Huff made his last major league start Sept. 29, 2013, lasting five innings for the New York Yankees. He has not pitched even four innings since that 2013 start. … Third baseman Juan Uribe (hamstring) could return Tuesday. ... Puig might not play Tuesday after coming up hobbling in the ninth inning, when he made a running catch. He did finish the game.

UP NEXT: Huff and the Dodgers face Hisashi Iwakuma (0-1, 6.00) and the Mariners on Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. at Dodger Stadium. TV: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020.
