Dodgers 1, Giants 0, end of seven

There was one more plane that tried to fly a banner over Dodger Stadium, but apparently since 9/11 there is an FAA rule that prohibits planes from flying over stadiums full of people. This last plane was around the first inning, but it was so far away, almost no one could see it.

Meanwhile, Clayton Kershaw continued to be in impressive command through seven innings.

Kershaw retired the Giants in order in the top of the inning. Through seven, he had struck out nine, walked one and given four hits. He'd thrown 96 pitches, 65 for strikes.

The Giants' Tim Lincecum was right with him. He also retired the Dodgers in order in the bottom of the seventh. Through seven innings, he yielded one unearned run on five hits and had five strikeouts.
