Martin and Blake Power Dodgers to 4-3 Victory over Nationals

Russell Martin continued his solid performance at the plate against the Nationals today and made it count in the 13th when he managed to deliver an RBI single with two outs on the board to lead the Dodgers past the Nationals 4-3 on Saturday.

Casey Blake did his part as well, delivering two home runs during the course of the game (the 9th time he’s accomplished this in his career) and throwing out what would have been the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the 13th.

The Dodgers road record improved to a lowly 4-7 with the win and continued their streak of not losing three games in a row yet this season. Unfortunately, they have managed to lose two games in a row on three separate occasions (and only squeaked out a win today by the thinnest of margins).
