Welcome to the big leagues, Kyle Farmer. 

The Dodgers rookie catcher, who the club called up on Friday, had his first major-league at-bat come in a huge spot in Sunday night's game against the Giants. He delivered.

Farmer pinch-hit in the bottom of the 11th inning with Los Angeles trailing, 2–1. After Corey Seager hit a leadoff double in the inning, San Francisco opted to have reliever Albert Suarez intentionally walk Justin Turner, owner a .356 average, to bring up Farmer. 

Sunday's starters, Madison Bumgarner and Hyun-Jin Ryu, both sparkled over seven shutout innings in a pitcher's duel before relenting to their respective bullpens. Pedro Baez earned the victory for Los Angeles.

The walk-off win, which was the Dodgers' eighth in a row, moved them to a major league-best 74–31 on the season.
