Now this is fun, the old Micro Manager rearranging the furniture on seemingly every pitch, Manny Ramirez juiced when it really counts and the Rockies keeping alive the best story in baseball. Folks around here are so excited, the Denver Post assigns columnist Dave Krieger to cover the game rather than a Broncos practice. And almost nothing is more important around here than a Broncos practice. It's such a big game, bigger than any Nuggets game against the Lakers, that's for sure, never any doubt who wins those games.

DENVER -- The Dodgers' relievers performed their usual routine Friday. They met in the dugout five minutes before the national anthem. They walked out to the bullpen together. And they preserved their team's lead, this time with Chan Ho Park, Scott Elbert, Cory Wade and Scott Proctor combining to post three scoreless innings in a 7-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field that maintained the Dodgers' 3 1/2 -game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West.
