Players who say they're exhausted only eight games into a season might raise eyebrows in some organizations, but the Dodgers are more understanding. General Manager Dan Evans and Manager Jim Tracy said Tuesday they weren't concerned that many players -- including team leaders Brian Jordan and Shawn Green -- have commented on being fatigued. The Dodgers have a difficult season-opening schedule and played consecutive extra-inning games Sunday and Monday.

KEY MOMENT: Jamey Wright gave up an 11th-inning double to Rockies pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes, after which Wright was replaced by left-hander J.P. Howell. Facing the left-handed-hitting Charlie Blackmon, Howell gave up a run-scoring single that broke a 2-2 stalemate. The run was the first of three in the inning for the Rockies. Adrian Gonzalez closed the gap to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the bottom half of the inning. ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett pitched what was by far his best game of the season, limiting the Rockies to two runs and four hits over eight innings.

Despite a baseball-imposed deadline of Saturday, negotiations regarding the Extra Innings out-of-market pay package are continuing, a spokesperson for In Demand said. In Demand, which is negotiating on behalf of cable television, and EchoStar, the parent company for the Dish Network, are trying to retain the package. If they are unsuccessful, the package will belong to DirecTV exclusively.

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.

Cal State Fullerton's Amy LaRocque was thrown out at the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning, ending the game and giving visiting Long Beach State a 4-3 victory over the Titans in a Big West Conference softball game Sunday. LaRocque was trying to score from first base on a double. Jaclyn Fredrickson hit a run-scoring grounder in the top of the ninth to give Long Beach State the lead.

Kelly Wilkerson's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the eighth inning gave Fullerton a 3-2 victory over Irvine Valley in an Orange Empire Conference softball game Friday at Fullerton. Irvine Valley (11-7-1, 0-1 in conference) rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the top of the seventh. Angela Jent hit an RBI single, then Leslie Mangiapani scored on an error to force extra innings. Fullerton improved to 14-2, 2-0.

Winning is fast becoming a habit for the streaking Cal State Northridge softball team. The 20th-ranked Matadors swept 17th-ranked Cal State Sacramento, 2-0 and 7-5, in a nonconference doubleheader Saturday to extend their winning streak to 13 games. Both games went into extra innings. In the first game, Tamara Ivie drove in Amy Colton and Jen Fleming (two for four) in the eighth inning for the only runs.

July hadn't been much of a month for Juan Samuel. He had struggled at the plate, hitting only .238. He spent a few hours in a Pittsburgh jail after being involved in a bar fight. And that was after spending some time on the bench last month when he briefly lost his starting job. But with one swing Saturday night, Samuel made up for a lot of frustration.

DeWayne Buice sat on the floor of his dressing cubicle, his shoulder on ice and his mind numbed by the events he had just witnessed. "I can't believe it," Buice mumbled over and over. His catcher, Darrell Miller, called it the "epitome of frustration. I don't think things can get any worse." His manager, Gene Mauch, paced his office like an expectant father. "Baseball is ridiculous," he said. "Just ridiculous.

In the upper deck behind home plate of Jack Murphy Stadium Tuesday night, a young man set fire to a Dodger pennant before being taken away. Rick Monday, who doesn't like flag-burners, was nowhere to be found. These are trying times for the Dodgers, sole occupants of last place in the National League Western Division for the last two nights. It's a position they never knew in 1985.

A win is a win. And Mike Scioscia figures his Angels need at least 90 of them to have a shot at returning to the postseason for the first time since 2009. But as Wednesday night stretched into Thursday morning, the giddy Angels were talking as if their last victory - a 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics on Chris Iannetta's 12th-inning walk-off homer - might just be worth a little bit more. "It's character building, it's team-identity building, it's chemistry building," Iannetta said.

KEY MOMENT: Down by two runs in the ninth, Kole Calhoun double for his third hit of the game and Mike Trout hit a towering two-run homer to center field, his fifth of the season, against left-hander Sean Doolittle to pull the Angels even, 9-9. But Oakland went ahead in the 11th when Jed Lowrie singled and Josh Donaldson hit a run-scoring double to left against Yoslan Herrera. AT THE PLATE: Trout (double) and Howie Kendrick (single) drove in runs in the first, and Calhoun (two-run homer)

KEY MOMENT: The Angels were one out from defeat, and three runs down, when Raul Ibanez stepped to the plate in the ninth inning. Ibanez delivered a three-run home run - his second home run of the season, and the 2,000th hit of his career - to force the game into extra innings. But Mets catcher Anthony Recker had the game-winning hit, a 13th-inning home run off the last man in the Angels' bullpen, Matt Shoemaker. AT THE PLATE: Collin Cowgill and Chris Iannetta each hit his first home run of the season.

Josh Hamilton's two-run home run in the 11th inning gave the Angels a 9-7 win over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night at Angel Stadium. Hamilton's walk-off homer against Boston reliever Craig Breslow, following a single by Brad Hawpe, came after the Angels had roared back with four runs in the ninth inning to send the game into extra innings in front of 36,112. It was the first time the Angels won a game after trailing by four runs or more in the ninth inning since 2005. BOX SCORE: Red Sox vs. Angels Behind 7-3 entering the ninth, the Angels scored three runs on singles by Chris Iannetta, J.B. Shuck, Albert Pujols and Hamilton, along with Mike Trout being hit by a pitch.

DENVER - A week ago Don Mattingly could have put together a better batting order picking names out of a hat. But with Matt Kemp on the disabled list, A.J. Ellis maybe headed there and Carl Crawford still sore after sliding into an outfield wall, the Dodgers manager considered himself fortunate simply to have nine healthy names to write on his lineup card Friday. So there was Skip Schumaker starting in center field, Luis Cruz and his .122 average at shortstop and Ramon Hernandez (.167, four runs batted in)

If the Baltimore Orioles reach the playoffs, their opponents might hope no game goes into extra innings. Jim Thome's run-scoring double led the Orioles to a 9-6 win over the Boston Red Sox in 12 innings Saturday, Baltimore's 16th consecutive extra-inning victory and the team's sixth consecutive win overall. Baltimore remained one game behind the first-place New York Yankees in the American League East and moved two games ahead of the Oakland Athletics in the AL wild-card standings.

Red Sox Nation has spoken. A pending deal by Major League Baseball to put its Extra Innings pay package exclusively on DirecTV may have to be put on hold now, buffeted by an uprising involving baseball's most ardent fans, spearheaded by those who live and die with the Boston Red Sox. MLB expected to announce the deal as early as next week, but that was less certain after Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) on Thursday asked the Federal Communications Commission to investigate the matter.

Christy Robitaille is only a freshman, but her confidence and stamina on the mound led Woodbridge to the Division II Southern Section softball title. Robitaille pitched all eight innings Friday night in the Warriors' 4-3 victory over Lakewood. It was her third extra-inning victory in the playoffs. She pitched 44 innings in five games, including a 6-3 victory in 13 innings over second-seeded Long Beach Millikan in the quarterfinals.

The third time, the magic wasn't to be for the Dodgers. It was there for the taking, almost teasing them, but this time they were unable to come up with the dramatics. After winning their last two games with walk-off hits, the Dodgers again went into extra innings Tuesday, at which point a walk-off was the only way they could win. Only this time it was the Padres who came up big, scoring three times in the 11th inning to earn a 6-3 victory before an announced crowd of 40,619 at Dodger Stadium.
