Garcia's only starting because Hudson and Maholm are both hurt and not on the NLDS roster. The highest ERA among the other starters (Minor, Medlen and Teheran) was 3.21. They allowed an MLB-best 3.38 runs per game.

So, basically, good pitching. And they led the NL in home runs, as well. They also tied for the NL lead in strikeouts, so fire Greg Walker?

Garcia and Uribe, key heroes from the '05 team, facing off right now.

At the time it made sense, but what a mistake it turned out to let Uribe walk.
A true winner. Great clubhouse guy.

Puig rips a hit inside the 1B bag and then aggressively takes 2nd. Dude is raw, makes mistakes, but my god, is he fun to watch.

Uribe just went profundo on David Carpenter.

Dodgers take a 4-3 lead in the 8th and they're now an inning away from the NLCS.

The over used "he can't hold his jockstrap" line couldn't be anymore truer than Alexei Ramirez to Uribe.

A winner.
