Post-Game 48 Thread: Manny Picks A Winner

DODGERS 5, ROCKIES 4

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.

No cable means sweet child of mine of the piano. Better warm my fingers. I don't use Manny's technique.

I still can't believe our 'pen (including two innings from Tron) held a 1-run lead at Coors.

Heading to market in the morning, myself. I plan on staying on the patio virtually the entire weekend.

My sweet child of mine morphed into november rain and then I felt like I was doing a Vegas show on G n R which then pushed back to the Helms tiger song. That was fun. This is what happens when I forget to bring something to read in the isolated fortress of solitude. Hey redundant phrase #infinity.

Paul said...

Dusty Baker said...
