"She's been so sweet since they have been part of the ownership," manager Don Mattingly said. "I feel good to be able to do this for someone within the family and our circle, to wear the wristband today."

During the game, six Dodgers starters used pink bats -- Joc Pederson, Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick, Adrian Gonzalez, Alex Guerrero and A.J. Ellis.

And Justin Turner used a pink bat to slug a two-run, tie-breaking pinch-homer in the eighth inning of the 9-5 win.

But some Dodgers wore pink virtually head to toe in pink spikes, shirts, sleeves, batting gloves and more.
