LA Dodgers defeat Philadelphia Phillies 8-6. The Dodgers were lucky to have a big lead going into the bottom of the ninth or these words would be talking about the Dodgers third consecutive game lost in the ninth inning. It seemed like the Dodgers had finally learned that one Manny an entire team does not make, but that ninth inning almost undid things. Jonathan Broxton gave up three hits and two earned runs in that ninth inning but got out of the jam when Ryan Howard hit a grounder weakly to second. Nomar Garciaparra will be back in the lineup after his 50th trip on the DL. The question now is who goes down? It's starting to sound like Andruw Jones might go on the DL. Maybe.

Notable Notes

  • With college football starting in a matter of weeks, no team looks dominant yet again. In the coaches poll Georgia, USC and Ohio State lead the pack yet all three teams have huge question marks. Can Georgia emerge on top in the always tough SEC? What will happen with USC in the aftermath of Mark Sanchez's injury? Is Ohio State really that good or are they overrated yet again?
