A Hollywood Ending, A Dodger Victory
“He can really get the job done, can’t he,” Dodgers starting pitcher John Ely said rhetorically of Andre Ethier through a huge grin.
With bases loaded in a 3 - 3 ball game, the last of the ninth, the Los Angeles Dodgers most clutch hitter in recent memory crushed a walk-off grand slam home run to center field off of Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins.
“For some damn reason, I just keep getting up in that situation where I get the opportunity to do it,” said Ethier.
His 11th career walk-off hit scored Jamey Carroll, Xavier Paul, and Matt Kemp for a 7 - 4 Dodgers victory. It was their first win of the three game set against the Brewers.
