Juan Uribe has the top walk rate on the Dodgers: one every 3.6 plate appearances.
After walking in his first three trips to the plate today, Uribe drove in the Dodgers’ second run of the ninth and third run of the game with an infield single. That proved critical because Brandon League allowed an Ike Davis home run in the bottom of the inning.
League retired the next three batters to avoid blowing his second save in less than 24 hours.
Staked to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, Hyun-Jin Ryu went seven innings and allowed only a run on three hits with three walks, striking out eight. Matt Kemp went 2 for 3 with a walk, an RBI and a run and is hitting a season-high .266.
Los Angeles split six games on its initial East Coast road trip.
