Dodgers Down Marlins

     The Los Angeles Dodgers used a bunch of home runs to blank the Miami Marlins 5-0 on Saturday night at Marlins Park. Dodgers starting pitcher Rich Hill compiled a perfect game through seven innings against Miami(70-72) before he was replaced by Joe Blanton.
     Joc Pederson broke up the scoreless tie for Los Angeles(80-61) on a solo home run to right field during the top of the fifth against Tom Koehler. The Dodgers added back-to-back home runs with a two-run homer by Corey Seager and a solo shot by Justin Turner in the sixth inning to go up 4-0.
     Brian Ellington entered the game for the Marlins and allowed a solo homer to Pederson down the right-field line in the top of the seventh. It was the fourth time in his career that Pederson had multiple home runs in a game.
     The Marlins broke up the perfect game with two out in the bottom of the eighth. Blanton was on the mound when Jeff Francoeur got a base hit off the glove of Seager at shortstop.
