In terms of pitching jams, it was the rough equivalent of being handcuffed and sealed in an overflowing milk can. The Dodgers loaded the bases with two out in the second for Matt Kemp, who worked a 3-0 count on Ricky Nolasco.

The ensuing Kemp strikeout was one of multiple escapes that Nolasco executed during a five-inning, nine-hit, two-run performance. He threw his last pitch trailing 2-0. By game's end the Marlins' had a 7-3, series-evening victory at Marlins Park.
