Post-Game 131 Thread: Super-Kemp Saves The Day

If this screengrab were clear, you'd see Matt Kemp giggling as he was interviewed post-game, following his walk-off HR, while being squirted by water.

DODGERS 7, ROCKIES 6 (11)

Chad Billingsley was inefficient with his pitches, lasting only six innings and 123 pitches and giving up 10 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB and 5 Ks. But he was still in line for the win when the Dodgers, down 4-0, erupted for five runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 5-4 lead. Hong-Chih Kuo promptly allowed the Rockies back into the lead the following frame on a two-run Troy Tulowitzki laser to left.

Then, the suddenly powerful James Loney homered in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at six. And two innings later, Matt Kemp did the same, a walk-off solo blast to right field that won the game in extras. Jim Tracy is foiled again, and the Dodgers seek their second consecutive series sweep tomorrow.
