DODGERS 5, D-BACKS 4
Despite Matt Kemp's first home run since the Carter administration, eight innings of this game felt like we were headed for the same old frustration from the last few weeks. The Giants had won yet again and we were going to sink even further.
Then up stepped Adrian Gonzalez with two on and one out in the ninth. One hot smash (and good hustle by Shane Victorino) later, and the Dodgers had stolen victory from the jaws of defeat (for the ninth time this season).
Now undefeated in September and just a half-game out of the wild card, the team finally looks energized again. Let's keep it rolling and throw it back at the doom-and-gloomers.
