Yesterday's Dodger game was worth the long drive and the unbelievable heat and even the helmet sundae fiasco.

All of the elements of a great game were there: Randy Johnson was starting (against Randy Wolf for a Randy vs. Randy battle which made me giggle), Martin hit a 2 run home run in the 1st inning which made the rest of the game seem easy, every Dodger in the starting lineup made it on base at least once, Randy Wolf had two hits, the DBacks had 4 errors and those made me laugh too, the Dodgers' offense just kept going and going and going (16 hits!), Tomko was put in relief and gave up enough runs to give the DBacks fans some hope to make the win all that sweeter, and Saito came in for the save and blew everyone away - even the Arizona fans sitting behind me.

Ah sweet victory.
