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.

Also, let's give credit to Lee Jenkins for his lede in the New York Times (which smartly had the game covered:)

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.

The fourth one flew straight into history.

For the Los Angeles Dodgers, those four home runs will be framed forever in franchise lore, right alongside Jackie Robinson, Kirk Gibson and Fernando-mania.
