It started out like another pedestrian Dodger game despite players meetings Sunday night and Monday afternoon and the first pitch thrown by Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.

The Dodgers gave up two runs in the first inning thanks to three singles, a pass ball and a throwing error by My Boyfriend. After the Mets notched another run in the top of the fourth, I started thinking of fun places I could go to in October while trying to avoid the baseball postseason.

Then in the bottom of the fourth inning the Dodger’s offense inexplicably woke up. They got things started in the bottom of the fourth by, of all people, Useless. He got a walk, stole second and scored when My Boyfriend hit a single.

From that point on, this Dodger’s team looked like a completely different team than they have recently shown winning the game 5-3.
