Dodgers 1, Giants 0, 10 Innings...

Russell Martin!!!!!

And dayum! Greg Maddux was terrific. As was Jason Schmidt, but I mean, really... Eight innings, only two hits, and 22 batters in a row retired on a measly 68 pitches? 68 pitches doesn't even get Chad Billingsley out of the third inning.

The Dodgers came out of the All-Star break losing 13 of 14, falling into last place. Since then they've won 15 of 16, and are back in first. There is always an ebb and flow to the baseball season, but the Dodger season has ebbed and flowed like the great Typhoon of '44. The losing streak was an awful thing, but it's helping keep the current streak in perspective. Still, I like their chances at this point.
