Hanley's Walk-Off Hit

What an amazingly frustrating game.  Joe Blanton pitched well enough in his Dodger debut, going 6 innings with 5 strike outs and only two runs given up.  He struggled a bit by allowing a bunch of baserunners, but was able to get out of several jams.  Overall, it wasn't a bad showing for our new starting pitcher.  Blanton was set up to possibly take home a victory for the blue crew, but then the relief corps failed, big time. 

I won't go into much detail from here- mainly because it's all a blur.  Fortunately, our newest Dominican sensation came through in a big way.

With Dodgers standing on the corners in the ninth inning of a tied game, Hanley Ramirez came up to the plate.  Check out the video below to see what happened.

So far, he's been a bit Manny-like, no?

Furthermore, I really wish the Dodgers would stop tackling their game heroes.  It kinda scares me.
