Post-Game 97 Thread: Casey Gets In On The Walkoff Madness

DODGERS 4, FISH 3 (AP recap)

Just got back from the game, so I'm sorry this is going up late. Awesome to see Casey Blake with his ninth-inning walkoff flare single to right, scoring Rafael Furcal in the ninth. Impressive to see Guillermo Mota's two innings of scoreless ball (on his birthday, no less). Wonderful to see Hiroki Kuroda with a solid six-inning outing with 2 ER and a crazy nine Ks (including 5 Ks through the first two innings). Exciting to see Andre Ethier go 3-for-3 with two walks. And incredible, of course, to have Jonathan Broxton's scoreless ninth inning hold up to not only get him the win, but also earn the Just For Men Stay In The Game award (according to the post-game show).

Brox, it just doesn't get bigger than that.

Heading back home. Dodgers went 6-1 while I was on vacation. Not sure what that means.

I really hope Brox keeps Iron Man as his Intro Music. Its epic and the crowd goes nuts.

That was a nice win tonight. Way to go Dodgers!

Iron Man when the John Mower enters is truly scary. I always have to lift my feet up off the ground and curl up, and look for someone's hand to hold. Has to be terribly menacing for opposing players. It essentially says "You shall die."

Last night was crazy. Great win.
