Someone at YouTube edited together Vin Scully's home run calls from the the ninth and tenth innings last night at Dodger Stadium. Five blasts to come back from 9-5 to beat the Padres in what many — including former general manager Fred Claire — are calling a game for the ages.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18 The first one slipped over the center-field wall. The second one almost struck the right-field roof. The third one settled into the left-field stands.
