Capuano loses no-no, but Dodgers win

Associated Press  |  Last updated August 12, 2012
Chris Capuano held Miami hitless until the seventh inning and Hanley Ramirez drove in three runs against his former team, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Marlins 5-0 Sunday. Capuano (11-8) shut down the Marlins until Jose Reyes lined a clean single to center field with one out in the seventh. Capuano allowed two hits in eight innings, striking out nine. The 33-year-old lefty had lost his last three starts with a 6.75 ERA in that span. Ramirez, acquired in a trade with the Marlins on July 25, hit a sacrifice fly in the third. He added a two-run single in eighth, giving him 500 career RBIs. Ramirez went 6 for 13 with five RBIs in his first series against his former club. His was booed before each at-bat. The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead into the eighth, and Heath Bell relieved Marlins starter Wade LeBlanc (1-2). After getting one out, Bell allowed four straight hits, including the single by Ramirez and an RBI single by Andre Ethier. Luis Cruz added an RBI double off Chris Hatcher to push the Dodgers lead to 5-0. Capuano allowed a bloop single by Nick Green in the eighth before Jamey Wright came on to pitch a perfect ninth. Capuano threw 69 of 102 pitches for strikes. LeBlanc pitched a season-high seven innings, allowing one run and six hits. NOTES: Matt Treanor was the Dodgers' catcher. His wife, Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor, was at the game. ... Ethier's .368 batting average (49 for 133) against the Marlins is the highest among active players with at least 125 plate appearances. ... It was LeBlanc's longest outing since pitching eight innings on April 24, 2011, while with San Diego. ... The Dodgers begin a four-game series at Pittsburgh on Monday and will send RHP Aaron Harang (7-7, 3.80 ERA) to the mound to face RHP Jeff Karstens (4-2, 3.77). ... Miami will host Philadelphia for a three-game set, with RHP Josh Johnson (7-8, 3.88) opposing Phillies RHP Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86) in the opener.
