Mighty Manny Has Flied Out: Brewers 6, Dodgers 5
The Dodgers picked up an early 1-0 lead on a Rafael Furcal RBI single, but Clayton Kershaw's clay feet quickly came into play in the next frame, as he walked four straight and drove in two that way. Kershaw ran aground again in the fifth, with Jeff Weaver allowing one of his inherited, bases-loaded, no-out baserunners to score on a double play ball, the bigger damage came in the next frame when Weaver gave up a first-pitch three-run jack to Ryan Braun. The Dodgers edged closer in the seventh on the O-Dog's scoring groundout, but really got going in the ninth with a big rally that took them three runs closer to the promised land, and ultimately loaded the bases with old foe Trevor Hoffman on the bump against Manny Ramirez. Manny obliged the Brewers in their quest for .500 by anticlimactically flying out to right, and hence the ballgame. Will he ever have another RBI?
