The creaky old stadium roared to life late in the evening so late that the Dodgers canceled the fireworks show scheduled to follow the game. City curfew and all.

No worries. The best show in town was the one on the field. The Dodgers scored four runs in the ninth inning and seven runs in the final three innings to stun the Tampa Bay Rays and delight a spirited crowd with a 7-6 victory on Friday.

“That was one of the best comebacks I have ever been a part of” Dodgers utilityman Skip Schumaker said.

“By far the sickest win I have ever been a part of!!” tweeted Dodgers pitcher Ricky Nolasco.

Rays closer Fernando Rodney fielded what could have been an inning-ending double-play comebacker and threw the ball into center field sending the Dodgers spilling onto the field as they unpacked their road heroics for the home fans.

The Dodgers came from six runs down tying the largest deficit they have overcome to win since moving to Los Angeles in 1958 according to the team.

"The magic is here even at home" Vin Scully said.

The Dodgers are 18-3 since the All-Star break including 13-1 on the road.

The fans were so loud in approval that the postgame interview over the public-address system could not be heard. The fans did boo the announcement of the canceled fireworks but not too loudly.

This might have been the most magical night in a run full of them. David Price the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner toyed with the Dodgers for seven innings.

Then he was done. Then the Rays were done -- done in that is by a shoddy bullpen.

The Rays had a 6-0 lead after six innings. The Dodgers scored an unearned run in the seventh inning off Price who departed after 99 pitches.

Surely the Rays could get six outs without giving up five runs. Nope. They got four outs -- among four relievers -- and gave up six runs.
