Turn That Frown Upside Down: Dodgers 7, Brewers 5
That brought up Ryan Braun, and there Park compounded his mistakes by giving Braun something to hit on an 0-2 pitch. Braun served notice to the Dodgers bullpen that someone else would be needed to finish the inning by pounding the ball into that cavity, tying the game to the astonishment of the assembled crowd, who started booing lustily.
Joe Beimel finished the inning, which led to the Brewers bringing in Carlos Villaneuva to restore order. The Dodgers managed to finish this one out storybook-style, with the Bison getting a leadoff single and Andre Ethier a two-run walkoff homer to send everybody home happy. The shot was his second of the game, and is that more valuable than Pierre's base-stealing skills?
