Independence from Randy

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The Dodgers catch a break in this week's series against Arizona, starting tonight, and miss Randy Johnson, who pitched a complete game Independence Day.

Update: Heroes tonight:

Shawn Green, who made a running catch at the short wall in right field of Steve Finley's first-inning home run bid.

Olmedo Saenz, who took a mangy 1-2 pitch from Scott Service - it looked like a screwball the way it flung itself inside - and then blasted, absolutely blasted, a three-run lead-changing home run on the next pitch.

Shea Hillenbrand, driven to such heights of confidence in helping to end Eric Gagne's save streak that he tried to bunt for a base hit with runners on second and third and two out in the top of the 10th inning, and fouled out.

Shawn Green, who came up in a bases-loaded, one-out, double-play situation in the bottom of the 10th and hammered a towering sacrifice fly to win the game.
