Dodgers score two touchdowns while the Nationals settle for a safety.
Hard to believe that with 14 runs, there was only one homerun (Casey Blake)
Maybe this was the game that Billingsley should have started!
Congratulations to Kuroda-san and the Dodgers on the win!
Dodgers magic number is
Seven is my lucky number!
Happy Birthday to our own Sweet Lou! Sweet Lou Johnson turned 75, September 22nd. I love seeing your smiling friendly face at the stadium Sweet Lou!
Johnson is most well known for his home run off Jim Kaat in Game 7 of the 1965 World Series that gave the Dodgers a lead they would never relinquish against the Twins.
Johnson also played a key role in another memorable win by Sandy Koufax that year.
During Koufax’s perfect game against the Cubs, on September 9, 1965, Johnson was the only batter from either team to reach base. He walked off Bob Hendley to start the fifth, advanced to second on a Ron Fairly sacrifice bunt, then stole third and scored when catcher Chris Krug’s throw went into left field. Johnson also doubled in the seventh inning, breaking up Hendley’s no-hitter.
Happy 25th Birthday to our centerfielder, The Bison, Matt Kemp!
We love you Matty!
Matt is having a fabulous year! He is batting .307, has 25 homeruns, 97 RBIs and has 34 stolen bases.
