After giving up a leadoff double to Davis and a single to Santana, he gave up a three-run homer to Swinski to right-center field with runners on first and third.

The Dodger offense slowly started to wake up in the middle of the game. In the bottom of the fourth inning, they capitalized on a shaky start. With the bases loaded and two outs, Heyward hit a sacrifice fly to cut the lead to 1-4.

There was a crisis. The Dodgers had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh when reliever Phil Bickford gave up a single to Triolo and walks to Hedges and McCutchen, but reliever Ryan Braazer got Reynolds (straight to shortstop), Davis (straight to second base) and Santana (grounder to third base) to end the threat.

With closer Evan Phillips out for the third straight game, the Dodgers turned to Daniel Hudson to close out the game. Hudson gave up a single and two walks to load the bases with no outs, but Davis (ground out), Santana (fly out to left field), and Swinski (swinging strikeout) got out of the jam to end the game.Miller went 5⅔ innings, allowing four runs on five hits (two home runs) with one walk and seven strikeouts.
