Manny Ramirez hit a go-ahead two-run HR in the sixth inning, completing a five-run comeback after the Rockies thrust out to a 4-0 lead off of Carlos Monasterios through four innings. It was a good time for the Dodgers' offense to wake up, and Manny's capper--no matter how unfazed he might appear in the screenshot above--was huge; it puts him ahead of Mike Schmidt on the all-time HR chart with 549 HRs, good enough for sole possession of 14th place, and it gave Ramirez his first career home run in Coors Field. Ramon Troncoso, Hong-Chih Kuo, and Ronald Belisario each got holds, while Jonathan Broxton worked a 2-K save in the ninth, to secure the victory.
With the news that Andre Ethier went 1-for-2 with a single in his minor-league rehab start in Memphis, things might be looking positively for the Dodgers this holiday weekend. If nothing else, the team's mettle to not be discouraged after being down by four, and holding on to a one-run lead at Coors Field, is worth memorializing.
