The Dodgers (84-34) took another step in that October direction Tuesday, snapping a tie by scoring five times with two out in the eighth inning to beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1.
The Dodgers poured it on from there: three consecutive hits, including two-run singles from Austin Barnes and Corey Seager.
He gave up one run over seven innings — yielding three hits to the first five batters he faced and three more to the final 22 — and lowered his earned-run average to 2.30.
If he were qualified now, his ERA would rank third in the majors, behind teammate Clayton Kershaw (2.04) and Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals (2.25).
The marine layer made a rare summer appearance at Dodger Stadium , making the evening more pleasant for the paying customers but more frustrating for the home team.
