On June 4 2011 — Matt Kemp hits a pair of homers, including an 8th-inning grand slam, in an 11 – 8 Dodgers win over the Reds in Cincinnati. However, Los Angeles needs an 11th-inning single by Jamey Carroll to take the lead, his fourth hit of the game, to start a four-run rally against Carlos Fisher. The Dodgers are down 5 – 0 in the early going before Kemp and Carroll get to work. Rookie Javy Guerra earns his first big league win.
