You figure that this game will get a bunch of screen time, when they get around to making the movie of Vin Scully’s life.
A crowd of Dodgers awaited Charlie Culberson at the plate. A wave of relievers trailed him as he rounded third base toward home, having launched the game-winning home run that delivered the Dodgers to a fourth consecutive division title Sunday in a 4-3 victory in 10 innings over the Colorado Rockies.
The hit ended the final game of Vin Scully’s career at Chavez Ravine in fitting fashion: A walk-off homer that sent the Dodgers (90-66) to the playoffs.
Walk-off home run for a game that went to extra innings? That’s pretty cool. And the script pretty much writes itself.
