Dodgers 7, Phillies 6
Andre Ethier celebrates his fourth-inning dinger with Manny Ramirez, who homered earlier. (Getty)
With one swing, Nomar Garciaparra lifted the Dodgers to a walk-off victory and a first-place tie with the D-backs, homering in the bottom of the ninth to cap a five-run comeback in dramatic fashion. Jeff Kent delivered a key two-run double, and Manny Ramirez and Andre Ethier went deep.
