NEW YORK - The Angels' beleaguered bullpen will add right-hander David Carpenter, who is being called up from triple-A Salt Lake for this weekend's series against the New York Yankees, but it was unclear Friday morning whether injured left-hander Scott Downs will go on the disabled list. Carpenter, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound right-hander who was scheduled to fly from Salt Lake to New York on Thursday night, has a low-90-mph fastball with late movement that induces a lot of ground balls.

This was supposed to be Clayton Kershaw's night. It turned into Juan Uribe's. Uribe launched an eighth-inning offering by David Carpenter high into the October sky, sending the Dodgers to 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves and to the National League Championship Series. Dodger Stadium literally shook when Uribe's two-run home run landed on the other side of the left-field wall and instantly reversed what was a 3-2 deficit. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 4, Braves 3 On a day that started with Manager Don Mattingly defending his decision to start Kershaw on three days' rest, the Dodgers won the best-of-five series, three games to one. The chants of the home crowd drowned out Uribe's voice when the third baseman was interviewed over the public-address system after the game.

Juan Uribe, almost booed out of town after two disappointing seasons with the Dodgers, continued his redemption in dramatic fashion. Uribe hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to give the Dodgers a 4-3 comeback victory Monday night at Dodger Stadium over the Atlanta Braves in their division series. The Dodgers became the first team to clinch a division series, defeating the Braves, 3-1, in the series. The victory advances the Dodgers to the National League Championship Series, where they'll play the winner of the Pittsburgh Pirates-St.

NEW YORK — A beleaguered Angels bullpen got some good news Friday when an MRI test on Scott Downs' injured right ankle showed no significant damage, which means the team's best reliever will probably avoid the disabled list. Downs twisted the ankle and had it stepped on while covering first in Thursday's 10-9 loss to Minnesota. He won't pitch this weekend, but the left-hander improved enough to be listed as day to day. "It's still sore," said Downs, who was on crutches Thursday but will try to play catch Saturday, "but it's way better than it felt.

A year ago, Michael Roth was dealing with a double major at the University of South Carolina, where he also dabbled some in baseball. On Wednesday he had to  deal with the Texas Rangers in his first major league start. And though things went well at first, the Rangers wound up schooling the rookie left-hander, driving him from the mound after 31/3 innings of a game Texas won, 11-3. For the bookish Roth, it was one more chapter in a baseball education that can be challenging at times.

Google "viola joke" and you'll be rewarded with thousands, an afternoon's worth of hilarity at the expense of one of the most expressive sound producing machines ever conjured up. Here's a popular example: What's the difference between a viola and a trampoline? You take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline. I learned that one from a violist who, like many of his colleagues, collects the jokes and posts them online. Why shouldn't he? He lives a charmed life with a string instrument mellower than a violin and more agile than a cello, a mechanism of magic, under his chin every day. He has no need for insecurity.
