"That celebration is the culmination of a long, long season and it's like Little League when you win," Mattingly said. "It's exciting. That stuff is spontaneous. I don't think it was planned to disrespect anybody or embarrass anybody. Everybody was gone, maybe 100 fans were left. We weren't rubbing it in anybody's face.

Slider after slider after slider struck them both out swinging. In fact, they didn't even do so much as make contact at any point. As Street point out after the game, neither guy is used to pinch-hitting. But still...
It got me thinking about the opposing pitchers' strategy against these two come October. It's pretty obvious: feed them sliders, and don't put a fastball anywhere close to the plate. Both guys might hang themselves if pitchers stick to that plan.

Scully will call the first three innings and the last three innings, including extra innings, of every Dodgers playoff game on the radio. Rick Monday and Charley Steiner, the Dodgers' radio broadcasters, will continue to call the middle three innings of games during the postseason.
"I'll do the front three and the back three," Scully told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Friday. "Charley and Rick will do the middle three. I'm just going to do what I would normally do."
