Everybody's Waitin' For The Man With The Bat: Dodgers 3, Phillies 1
Nomar got to star in this one, looking like his old brilliant self from Boston, making dazzling plays at short while driving in a run. Matt Kemp had a solo homer that proved the winning tally, a blast into the outfield pavilion a couple rows deep.
Really, against the NL East leading Phillies? Oops, I forgot — no more, now that the Mets beat Washington 9-3, the Mets are back atop the East by a game. The Dodgers are still tied with the Snakes at 62-59, and the NL West looks a little less embarrassing now.
*Those wondering what the hell I'm talking about can go here. Forget Vonda Shepard, Kay Starr's the real deal.
