Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com recaps the Dodgers’ 6-5 victory over Colorado on Friday.

(By the way, check out Satchel Paige’s 12-inning shutout at age 46.)
Fifty years ago today, “quiet-mannered, pleasant gentleman of 32” Vin Scully had this interview in the Times (via Keith Thursby of the Daily Mirror). You might find some anecdotes there you haven’t heard before.
