The Dodgers have played four extra-inning games this season, and Tuesday night's might have saved a life. Capt. Matt Smith of Fire Station 14 here was listening to the Dodger game with the Padres in San Diego. When it went into extra innings, he took his radio outside so he would not disturb his sleeping crew. While outside, Smith noticed smoke coming from a nearby building and sounded the alarm. Firefighters found a duplex on fire a block away.

KEY MOMENT: In the blooper reels, this one will live on. The Diamondbacks had the potential winning run on third base in the ninth inning, and Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz stood up for the intentional walk. But reliever Chris Withrow threw the ball over the head of a catcher standing up - yes, a wild pitch on an intentional walk. That would have been the play that cost the Dodgers the game, had Juan Uribe not forced extra innings with a home run in the bottom of the ninth. Instead, Aaron Hill's two-run single off Chris Perez in the 12th inning won the game for Arizona.

The Dodgers showed up at Riverfront Stadium only a little bit before the rain Wednesday and got in just two innings of baseball before the game was delayed and then finally postponed. So the Dodgers, who were trailing, 2-0, after two innings, were able to complete a one-game sweep of the Reds. The Dodgers left for Houston almost as soon as crew chief Harry Wendelstedt called the game off. That was after a two-hour rain delay, which came in addition to a 31-minute delay before the game.

SAN DIEGO - For the Dodgers, the start of this season is beginning to feel uncomfortably similar to the start of the last. In fact, this could turn out worse. The Dodgers did beat the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, 3-2, to improve to 3-1. But the good news ended there. Not only did Manager Don Mattingly have to concede that ace Clayton Kershaw was unlikely to pitch this month because of a strained back muscle, he said $10-million setup man Brian Wilson was about to join the sidelined ace on the 15-day disabled list.

A Burbank couple who engaged in oral sex in the stands during a Dodgers game last summer was ordered Friday to buy 100 tickets to Dodgers games for charity and to attend an AIDS education class, according to the city attorney's office. Melvin Michael Hoffman, 53, and Regina Anne Chatien, 43, were told to serve 120 hours of community service or pay a $500 fine, said Deputy City Atty. Michael D. Schwartz, who handled the case.

Dominic Abbott of North Torrance West Little League will be the honorary bat boy for the Dodgers-Atlanta game Friday night as part of the annual Northrop Night at Dodger Stadium. Abbott, 10, is a pitcher-infielder for the Minor Division Indians. His mother, Susan, an employee at Northrop, coaches the team. Striker Jeff Hooker was named Player of the Week in the Western Soccer League for tallying a pair of goals and an assist to lead the L.A. Heat into a first-place tie in the South Division with a 4-2 victory at Arizona last week.

In the new drag race movie "The Fast and the Furious," one dramatic scene shows a driver roaring back and forth through the deserted parking area of Dodger Stadium. Obviously, the fearless youth is preparing for the day he faces the biggest test of his life: leaving a Dodger game early to beat the traffic. The wimpy and the wordy: Before the movie began, incidentally, a cautionary note on the screen said, "We appreciate your support in creating a quiet, movie-going experience."

Will Thurston, softball coach at Moorpark College, returned home Tuesday night from a two-day stay at Westlake Medical Center after passing out Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. "It's one of those things that they aren't quite sure (what happened)," Thurston said. "All they know is I have some sort of deficiency with the sugar in my blood. Probably hypoglycemia." Thurston, 36, collapsed soon after arriving with his sons, Kyle, 7, and Nick, 5, for the Dodger game against Philadelphia.

When pharmaceutical representative Mark Shuster wanted to brief doctors on the latest in depression and anxiety treatments, he invited a dozen of them to a Dodger game. As twilight descended and game time neared, the Pfizer Inc. rep hosted a round-table discussion in a conference room in the belly of the ballpark.

Vin Scully was calling the Freeway Series at Dodger Stadium when the 5.1 earthquake Friday night made some news. The quake occurred during the 6th inning. "A little tremor in the ball park," Scully said. "I am not sure if the folks felt it, but we certainly felt it here. " "A tremor and only that thank goodness," he added. The baseball game went on without incident. Scully later recounted the massive 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in the Bay Area, which occurred just before a game of the World Series.

Vin Scully really does enjoy his down time. He's a regular guy that way, it's just that his schedule is typically demanding even in the off-season, though maybe never more than this one. In the last 30 days, he was honored as  grand marshal of the Rose Parade , announced it was “time for NHL hockey” before to the Kings-Ducks game at Dodger Stadium, presented Spanish-language broadcaster Jamie Jarrin with a lifetime achievement ...

Sadly, there won't be an appearance by the Beach Boys at the upcoming Kings-Ducks game at Dodger Stadium. Now that would have been a master stroke in keeping with the SoCal theme. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter thought Neil Young would have been an especially inspired choice. Then again, Young is a San Jose Sharks season-ticket holder. Sutter, in fact, met him briefly back in the day when he coached the Sharks. But the musical program for the Jan. 25 game was rounded out Wednesday when organizers announced that KISS will be joined by Jordin Sparks and John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting as featured performers, along with the USC Trojan Marching Band.

Saturday night at a black-tie dinner in Chicago, a Dodgers broadcaster will go into the Hall of Fame and it won't be Vin Scully. A shocker? No. Scully is already there. If there is a Hall of Fame that has any connection whatsoever to broadcasting and Scully isn't in it, it's a lousy Hall of Fame. Now, Charley Steiner will be joining him. That means, next year, when fans tune in to Dodgers' baseball, they will be informed and entertained by three Hall of Famers. That's far from the norm, maybe a first, and should make Dodgers fans proud.

Columnists and reporters from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch will be sharing their views with Los Angeles Times readers during the National League Championship Series. By getting all tangled up in (Dodger) blue in Game 3, the Cardinals fumbled away the opportunity to put the champagne on ice in advance of Game 4. There will be no chance of a St. Louis celebration Tuesday, no chance of the Cardinals sweeping the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.

More than two hours before Monday's first pitch, amid the early stirrings of a stadium on the brink, two men made a single quiet decision. They each announced it alone. They each spoke while wincing in pain. There were no fans around to cheer it. There were no teammates nearby to inspire it. Yet it was a decision that altered legacies, energized a city and perhaps even saved a season. In the Dodgers' dugout, Hanley Ramirez announced he was going to play Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a broken left rib. "This is no time to lay down right now," said Ramirez.

Where is Oliver Stone when you need him? There is a conspiracy brewing in the WBNA and he is nowhere to be found. Never have I seen The Times print in a headline the attendance of a Laker, King, Angel or Dodger game. Yet, for Sparks games attendance figures are in the headline. Is every Dodger game a sellout? Let's give the league some slack until they can prove themselves. TAMI JACOBY Orange

I would like to give some praise to Vin Scully. One day in the car, I turned the dial to the Dodger game. My son Jason, who was about 3 at the time, looked at me and said, "Dad, the Dodgers are playing." I asked him how he knew this and he said, "That man's voice." JERRY HOBBS Riverside

Just picture it. Palm trees sway and dusk darkens the San Gabriel Mountains as officials prepare to drop the puck for the first outdoor NHL game in California. The Kings and Ducks line up for the historic moment while fans at Dodger Stadium and a national TV audience admire the gorgeous backdrop and marvel at the technology that allows a hockey rink to be plunked down across the infield. Fans in shorts and tank tops roar their approval. It's a triumph for the league and Commissioner Gary Bettman, who has ditched his corporate pinstriped suit for a colorful Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops to fit the relaxed atmosphere.
