And On A Happier Note: Dodgers 5, Pirates 4 (13 Innings)

I'm getting a serious dose of east coast bias here in Arkansas, which is set in the central time zone; the Dodgers managed to tie this one up after trailing most of the way in regulation following a Steve Pearce homer and Zach Duke's RBI single, both in the second inning.

The Dodgers edged closer in the fifth on a Casey Blake triple and Mark Loretta's sac fly, and then tied it in the ninth when Matt Kemp drove home Andre Ethier from second on an RBI single. The game went to extras, and once more, Ethier did himself proud with a walkoff blast in the 13th. Too bad I was asleep by then. Just as well, in a sense: to hear anything of what was going on, I had to listen to the MLBAM Pirates feed, because the Dodgers feed kept stalling or going silent on Gameday Audio, both on my desktop and on my iPhone. Unforgiveable, and it's not the first time that's happened, either.
