Dodgers/Phillies Game 2: Phew!
In the eighth inning, Casey Blake led off with a single. Ostensibly trying to move him over, Rafael Belliard instead got on base with a perfectly placed bunt. And when Chase Utley muffed the throw to first on Russell Martin's potential double play grounder, pinch runner Juan Pierre scored the winning run. Then lefty Jim Thome (yes, I know I ragged on him) singled off lefty Scott Eyre, Rafael Furcal walked to load the bases, and Ethier walked to force in the go-ahead run. Boss Hogg shut the Phillies down in the 9th and this one was in the books.
