Manny Handled
Dodgers leftfielder Manny Ramirez had to be restrained by catcher Russell Martin and manager Joe Torre when the benches cleared in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday. The brouhaha started shortly after L.A.'s Hiroki Kuroda threw a pitch over the head of Phillies batter Shane Victorino in apparent retaliation for Brett Myers's throwing behind Ramirez in Game 2. The Dodgers got their first win in the series, 7--2 (page 40).

Blowing His Top
Safety Ahmad Black (35) and end Justin Trattou (94) were among the Florida players who applied a helmet-popping hit to LSU running back Charles Scott last Saturday in Gainesville, Fla. The Gators held Scott to 35 rushing yards and upset the previously unbeaten Tigers, 51--21.
