'Runs come easy when they're make-believe' is your Vin Scully wisdom of the day

The Dodgers jumped out to a 1-0 lead over the Giants in the first inning last night, but San Francisco scored four in the third inning and never looked back. L.A. fans' dreams of a comeback to tie the game were only that -- and one such spectator who got caught up in the idea was the scoreboard operator.

What followed on TV was an important lesson from immortal broadcaster Vin Scully. Talk, and illuminated pixels on a jumbotron, are cheap -- but real runs take hard work to get.
