Juan Uribe, in triplicate! Uribe hit three HR in his first three ABs to help power the Dodgers out of our four-game losing streak slump, and on to victory. You read that right: three HR from Uribe (the first time ever that a Dodgers 3B had three HR); don't just take my word for it, trust the Gadsden (Alabama) Times! Uribe finished 4-for-4 with 3 runs and 4 RBI. Incredible.
The Dodgers actually had four HR in the first three frames, off the bat of Andre Ethier, Uribe, Adrian Gonzalez (two-run HR), and Uribe again. Add another HR from Uribe, and a HR from Hanley Ramirez, and the Dodgers were romping: six HR and eight runs scored.
Ricky Nolasco went 6.2 IP with 3 H and 1 ER, 1 BB and 6 Ks. J.P. Howell, Carlos Marmol, and Kenley Jansen closed out the Snakes. Dodgers' magic number shrinks to eight. As I see it, YES!
UPDATE: As SoSG Nomo called in the GT, Hello Kitty is indeed good luck.
