MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 3, Florida 2

LOS ANGELES, May 28 (UPI) -- A bases-loaded single by Dioner Navarro with nobody out in the ninth inning Friday gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 win over Florida.

The Marlins tied it in the eighth on an RBI single by Greg Dobbs but Florida reliever Clay Hensley (0-1) was unable to retire a batter in the ninth while trying to get the game into extra innings.


Florida had won three games in a row. The Dodgers picked up just their fourth win in 13 contests.

The first two Los Angeles runs came on homers by James Loney in the second and Andre Ethier in the sixth.

Casey Blake led off the ninth with an infield single and moved to third on Ethier's base hit. Matt Kemp was intentionally walked to load the bases and Navarro came up to bat for winning pitcher Rubby De La Rosa.

Navarro hit an 0-2 pitch to right to bring home Blake with the winning run.

De La Rosa (1-0) gave up two hits and a run in two innings with a walk and a strikeout.
