With J.A. Happ walking Andre Either in a baseball loaded jam, Russell Martin crossed the plate to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the 8th. It was all the Dodgers would need to sucure the win and ties the NLCS at 1-1.
There were no controversial calls, as was also the case in Game 1 of the NLCS, a far cry from what occurred in the LDS when there were three.
