It was 80's Night, all right. The Bangles sang the national anthem, they played 80's music between innings (thanks, Delino!) and Jamie "Mr. Softee" Moyer's fastball topped off in the low 80's. But that didn't help the Dodger bats, who managed only four hits and two runs off him. Moy mal.
Eric Milton pitched decently but continued the trend of Dodger pitchers not going deep enough into games, with the bullpen — Guillermo Mota, Brent Leach, Ramon Troncoso and winner Jonathan Broxton — picking up the slack. Orlando Hudson and Matt Kemp also made impressive run-saving defensive plays.
And then it all came together in the bottom of the ninth against Brad Lidge: Furcal K. O-Dog ground out. Beard single. Loney walk. A Pedro Feliz error on a hard-hit grounder by Martin loaded the bases. And then, (above).
