Saturday, May 14, 2005That Infamous Friday
Usually Friday the 13th is supposed to be a day of doom and dread. For me, NOT SO MUCH.
My mom used to say that Friday the 13th meant it was a good day for her. I guess I must have been "cursed" with the same luck. And so were the Los Angeles DODGERS! If you missed the game against the Atlanta Braves, you better keep reading!
LOS ANGELES -- As Adam LaRoche rounded the bases, Milton Bradley thought that Jeff Weaver had worked too hard for it to end this way.
The right-hander had taken a no-hitter into the sixth and was one pitch away from closing out the top of the eighth with the Dodgers ahead. LaRoche changed all of that, driving a 2-2 changeup 436 feet into the night for a grand slam and a jarring change of Weaver's fortune.
But the Dodgers came out in their half of the eighth and calmly loaded the bases on three soft singles. Cleanup man Jeff Kent struck out, bringing Bradley to the plate. Five pitches later, Bradley got a changeup of his own, and a grand slam of his own, and the Dodgers were on their way to a 7-4 win over the Braves.
The Dodgers weren't done after Bradley's bomb, slapping three more singles, including a run-scoring hit by pinch-hitter Hee-Seop Choi to make it 7-4.
The only negative to the evening for the Dodgers was that Weaver's effort went to waste. He allowed six hits and four runs in 7 2/3 innings, striking out seven.
