Jeff Kent's two-out single broke a ninth-inning tie, and the Los Angeles Dodgers won their fourth game in a row Tuesday night by beating the Florida Marlins 7-6. Andre Ethier walked with one out against Kevin Gregg (3-1), took second on a groundout and scored on Kent's single.
Joe Beimel (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth, and Takashi Saito pitched a perfect ninth for his third save in five chances. The Dodgers won even though Derek Lowe was unable to protect a 6-1 lead. Dan Uggla hit his fourth homer for the Marlins, and they scored three unearned runs in the fifth for a 6-all tie.
