This was a classic match-up between the Dodgers and their rivals to the North. It was a game in which the Dodgers had to come back just to even the score at one apiece after being shutout by the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner over seven frames.
In the bottom of the ninth, Los Angeles rallied to tie the game and force extra innings only to see San Francisco regain the lead in the top half of the eleventh. With runners on first and second and one out, Kyle Farmer was asked to pinch hit in a game that the Dodgers were at risk of losing. Boy, what a way to make an entrance.
Not only did Farmer get his first major league at-bat against the hated ones, he also did it in heroic fashion. On Sunday, July 30, in front of over 50,000 fans reported to be in attendance that day, Kyle Farmer hit a line drive double to right field. His hit earned him two RBI and the adoration of all in attendance that day. It also gave the Dodgers walk-off win number nine in 2017.
