Mannywood is alive and well in Chavez Ravine

In one of the most unbelievable moments in recent history Manny Ramirez hits a grand slam as a pinch hitter, in a tie ball game in the 6th inning against the Reds. Manny hit the home run on the first first pitch.  It was Ramirez’ 21st career slam, second all-time to Lou Gehrig’s 23, and first career pinch-hit homer. Coincidentally, it was Manny bobblehead night at Dodgers Stadium.  How fitting.

The Dodgers sweep the Reds in three games with a 6-2 win.  Ramirez, was not in the starting lineup because of a bruised left hand . Chad Billingsley got his sixth win and Jonathan Broxton got the save.
