Hanley delivers in 10th as Dodgers close in on first
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jul 20, 2013
Hanley Ramirez doubled to highlight at two-run 10th inning Saturday night, and the Los Angeles Dodgers used seven pitchers to again tame the tepid offense of the Washington Nationals in a 3-1 victory. The Dodgers have won seven of nine to close within striking distance of the NL West lead; the Nationals have lost seven of nine to fall into third in the NL East. A pitchers' duel between Zack Greinke and Gio Gonzalez gave way to a battle of the bullpens on Saturday night at Nationals Park, and that worked to the Dodgers' advantage. Los Angeles now has won 19 of its past 24 and is unbeaten over its past nine series, pulling to within a game of Arizona in the National League West, pending the D-backs' result in San Francisco on Saturday night.
