That Was Fun
What an evening of postseason baseball. In St. Pete, backup catcher Jose Lobaton played the role of hero as he hit a game-winning home run into the aquarium off Red Sox closer Koji Uehera, who had not given up a homer since June 30.

A few hours later, Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to give Los Angeles a 4-3 win and complete their series victory over Atlanta. Treat yourself to Vin Scully‘s call of the late-game action.
