On a day where Ghana depressingly dispatched Team USA again, 2-1, for the second straight World Cup, the Dodgers redeemed the evening by overcoming an early lead (similar to what the Americans faced in the World Cup all tournament long), driving the evil Yankees back to Hades (or the Bronx) and allowing Americans to fully rejoice in victory. Rafael Furcal went 3-for-5, James Loney went 2-for-4 with 4 RBI, and four relievers combined to keep the Yankees scoreless (giving up only one hit over 3.2 IP). Americans nationwide, thanks to the Fox Saturday Game of the Week, were able to witness this glorious spectacle and unleash all the patriotic splendor they had bottled from this afternoon.
Except for those few Yankee fans, I suppose. It was probably a bad day for them.
