The Game Was This Close

I wanted to write another post about today's game because I thought the picture above was cool.  It's not quite Jackie Robinson and Yogi Berra from Game 1 of the 1955 World Series, but the photo shows just how close the Nationals came to tying the game in the bottom of the 13th inning.  Russell Martin did a nice job blocking the plate, keeping fellow backstop Ivan Rodriguez from touching the plate before Martin applied the tag.

Today's game had many opportunities to turn sour for the Dodgers, like so many other games have done in the season's first three weeks.  But it didn't. 

For more pictures from today's game, check out today's Dodgers.com photo gallery.
