Two Games

The Disimplosion: Dodgers 5, Phillies 3 (10 Innings)

With a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, Jonathan Broxton imploded for a pair in the bottom of the ninth to let the game go into extras, against a batter he should have easily dispatched, the .257-hitting reserve catcher Carlos Ruiz.

That's baseball.

The Dodgers got to Chad Durbin in the 10th, with Russell Martin — who looks like he's finally getting out of his slump — driving in Andre Ethier from first on a two-out double, and Matt Kemp driving him home on another double. In between, James Loney got his first intentional walk of the year.

And Ramon "Tron Tron" Troncoso nailed his second save, the Dodgers walk away from Philadelphia with some questions answered about this team — what is it about Jon's sedative posts that seem to bring out the dramatics in the Dodgers? (Odd that the Phillies figured in that first post, too.)

It's A Miracle: Angels 5, Red Sox 4 (12 Innings)

So, let's recall the list of things that worked out for the Angels that qualify as miracles:

So, yay, a win, and yay another series win against the Sawx.

Update 2: David Ortiz, one of the Sox I have always admired and a generally class act:

"I'm sorry, guys," Oritz said. "I don't feel like talking right now. Just put down, 'Papi stinks.' "
