Let it be said that Andre Ethier likes the pressure. Yet another walk-off home run for Andre Ethier, with none out and two on in the ninth, brings the Dodgers a very unlikely victory--particularly after we squandered opportunities in the seventh (Manny Ramirez Ks with two on and two out), and then again in the eighth (Matt Kemp Ks with two on and two out, in a pinch-hitting role). But leave it to Andre, who flied out preceding Manny in the seventh, but came through big time in the ninth yet AGAIN.
I could dwell on how Manny is now 2-for-14 with RISP since the BobbleSlam, going 2-for-4 with an RBI tonight, but I won't. Nor will I lament poor Randy Wolf, who was supported yet again by a lack of offensive firepower in the early innings. Meanwhile, Derek Lowe is denied a second straight win over the team that exiled him for that whole Carolyn Hughes imbroglio. I don't think we'll see Lowe again this year--which is fine by both me and Jamie McCourt.
In other news, Guillermo Mota came in to pitch the ninth, but had no one to bean.
Dodgers maintain the best record in baseball by a hair over the Yank-Mes. Just another come-from-behind victory from the comeback kids. Good night, everybody!
