Los Angeles equalized the slate in the ninth with a single Cody Bellinger tug and could have won but for a double star play by Jordy Mercer in a Joc Pederson round. Thrower Tony Watson ran and bounced his pitch to second, but Mercer waited for him with one foot on the pad and completed the double kill.
Cesarinoleño Kenley Jansen (2-0) won the victory after a 10th inning in white.
