Bono thinks highly of Brian Wilson

“The genius of Brian Wilson’s music is the joy that’s in it.

“I know that Brian believes in angels. I do too.

“But you only have to listen to the string arrangement on ‘God Only Knows’ for fact and proof of angels.”

– U2 vocalist Bono

Payback, 27 years later

On Aug. 21, 1990, the Dodgers took an 11-3 lead into the top of the ninth inning against Philadelphia.

The Phillies proceeded to score nine runs in the ninth inning to beat the Dodgers 12-11. It remains the biggest ninth-inning comeback/meltdown in baseball history. Dodger fans of a certain age will never forget that game.

Twenty-seven years later, the Dodgers got a little payback against the Fightin’ Phils.

The Dodgers blasted three consecutive home runs (Puig, Bellinger, Turner) in the bottom of the ninth Saturday to tie the score at 5-5. A few batters later, Adrian Gonzalez won the game with a single. Absolutely stunning.

The way our offense has been performing, it was the most unlikely comeback I’ve seen in a while.

And how about that Cody Bellinger? Two home runs last night for the rookie, who is considered one of baseball’s top prospects.

Saturday’s game was reminiscent of this one in 2006…

It’s a wash

Our softball tournament in Ankeny this weekend has been completely rained out. All of it.

Kersh to the rescue 

Clayton Kershaw stymied the Giants last night to help the Dodgers avoid another losing streak. I stayed up late and watch the whole game, and Kershaw made it all worth it.

Kershaw’s career earned-run average at AT&T Park is 1.36.
