Most of the excitement of today's game was confined to the first inning, as Manny Ramirez hit his first post-suspension home run. After that, it felt like the Dodgers offense was caught gawking at Manny, expecting him to hit a tater in every at-bat. Both Randy Wolf and Josh Geer kept it close until the seventh, but the Dodger bullpen finally cracked, conspiring with the defense (three errors on the day) to allow six Padres runs. The Dodgers scratched out single runs in the eighth and ninth innings, but that's where the game ended. Damn towels.
