Best night of baseball ever? Best night of baseball ever.
Even as a Dodger fan, I had something to keep my eyes glued to the TV: Matt Kem(v)p with a legit shot at 40/40. Sure, he didn't make it, but he hit one last blast that put him alone at the top of the NL home run heap.
I normally dislike the Cardinals, but I found myself pulling for them to overtake the Braves. This was mostly due to Rafael Furcal, who I like a lot. The Dodgers traded him to St. Louis so he'd have one more shot with a contender, and it worked out.
That said, I'm throwing my weight behind the Brew Crew.
