A struggling Ricky Nolasco finally got a win -- thanks, though, in large part to the Miami Marlins' offense and a late rally. Miami would tack on four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and three more in the eighth to slide past the Dodgers by a final score of of 7-3 at Marlins Park.
Nolasco would toss 90 pitches over five innings, allowing nine hits but also surrendering just two runs.
The rubber-match finale is scheduled for Sunday at 1:10 p.m. EST. Los Angeles took the first contest of the three-game weekend set by a score of 5-2 on Friday night.
