“It ain’t over til it’s over” seems to be the Dodgers theme this year as they continue to dominate at Dodger Stadium. This time, they were shut out for 8 innings by the Cardinals before scoring 2 in the bottom of the ninth to win once again 2-1.

The St. Louis Cardinals came into Los Angeles hot and hoped to make up some ground in the division, but left with a sweep and 3 tough defeats. Jack Flaherty dominated, pitching 7 scoreless innings and Giovanny Gallegos added a clean 8th.

In the bottom of the 9th with one out, Cory Seager was hit by a pitch and Will Smith singled. After Edwin Rios struck out, veteran catcher Russel Martin came to the plate. A wild pitch advanced the runners, and Martin chopped a single up the middle scoring both and sending the fans home happy.

With 10 walk-off wins already this season, they are approaching the 1974 record set by the Dodgers at 16. They have a 16 1/2 game lead in the NL West and not only do they keep winning, but they also win in dramatic Hollywood style.
