Ex-Padre David Wells sent his ex-teammates on a loooooooong trip home to San Diego last night. Just when you thought the season was over, the Dodgers win two-in-a-row against the insanely awesome Padres.

It was Maddux vs Wells (old vs old?). Wells allowed only 4 hits, Maddux allowed 11 including 2 from Wells himself (his first multi-hit game ever).

Dodgers win 6-3. Saito made his impressive 38th save of the season to an elated, had-to-get-drunk-after-work crowd of 44,700 (not bad for a Thursday night).

But my hero hands down last night was Rafael Furcal, who stole 3 bases and made 3 runs. First he stole second, then he stole third -- it was like the sneaky bastard was going to steal them all (which would have made me considerably more than just aroused).

This team was and is still awesome. We were #1 for 3.5 months this season, did anyone forget that? And now we're coming back, baby. So pick up your shit LA and jump back onto the bandwagon.

1.5 games back, 16 games to go.
