Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, on the pressure of having to complete his save in a timely fashion, before the planned fireworks show at Dodger Stadium was cancelled because of a curfew: "I don't care about fireworks. I have to make sure I don't get fireworks out there."

Kenley Jansen is the hero. He finishes off the Diamondbacks in time for fireworks. Huge cheer. Dodgers earn a wild 9-7 victory.

The Dodgers are giving closer Kenley Kansen 15 minutes to finish off the top of the ninth otherwise there will be no fireworks show as scheduled. The club has a local curfew of 10:55 p.m. for fireworks. There is over 50,000 at Dodger Stadium. No pressure.

How do the Dodgers respond after giving up seven runs in one inning to the D-backs? Pederson and Utley hit two-run HRs and this wild game is tied 7-7, B7. The teams have combined for 11 runs this inning alone.

Why are the Dodgers hot after OF help at the trade deadline? They're 25th in OPS from their outfielders and have the fourth lowest OPS from their 3-4-5 hitters.

Dodgers reliever Adam Liberatore in his first outing since his scoreless outings streak ended at 28 on Sunday. Was nursing a sore knee.

Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda lasted just 6 1/3 innings Friday. He has made it to seven innings just two times in 21 starts. The Dodgers have a 3-1 lead on the Diamondbacks.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

It's sad seeing Tim Lincecum scuffle through this outing for the Angels. He already has six walks in the fourth inning, has allowed four hits and a couple more hard-hit outs. His ERA is 8.45 and I'm not sure there is much incentive for the Angels to keep running him out there.
