Shane Victorino activated from DL
Victorino, sidelined since July 28 with a lower abdominal strain, wasn't in the starting lineup. Ben Francisco was in left field against left-hander Clayton Kershaw, with Jayson Werth remaining in center.
The switch-hitting Victorino was batting .250 with a career-high 15 homers in 99 games.
"When it happened, I thought it was," said Gload, adding that he could pinch-hit as a last resort.
