at Los Angeles
Friday, March 28 Red Sox at the plate: Jacoby Ellsbury scored from third on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning. Sean Casey's sixth-inning single was all the Sox could mount against four Dodgers relievers the rest of the way. Dodgers at the plate: Consecutive doubles by Andre Ethier and Jeff Kent with none out in the third inning produced L.A.'s first run. The Dodgers' winning rally came in the eighth on a walk to Ethier, who scored on a double by Mark Sweeney, who scored on James Loney's bloop single.
Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Dodgers' arrival in Los Angeles, the contes will feature a matchup between Red Sox right-hander Tim Wakefield and Dodgers right-hander Esteban Loaiza. Proceeds from the game will go to ThinkCure, the Dodgers' official charity.
