With the way networks and TV deals work for the baseball playoffs, Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully isn’t able to call Dodger games on TV.

Instead, Vin is calling the first three and last three innings of playoff games on the radio as Dodger fans everywhere mute the TV and sync the audio with the action going on. Well, last night Dodger fans were treated to listening to Vin call an incredible game as Juan Uribe’s two-run home run in the eighth inning sent the Dodgers to the NLCS.

Earlier this year, Vin announced that he would be coming back for one more season as the Dodgers move from KCAL and Fox Sports over to their own channel, SportsNet LA.

With all due respect to Ernie Johnson and the TBS broadcasting crew, nobody can set the stage or paint the perfect picture quite like Vin, so here’s his call of Uribe’s two-run blast.

    Vin Scully invites you to a world of baseball unlike no other. TBS broadcasters are good reading us stats and small talk, but nothing like a game with Vin Scully on mic.

    There is color commentary, and then there is Vin Scully. He is in a classification all his own. It offends me when corporate baseball would even dare to consider anyone other than Vin calling a Dodger baseball game. My dad and I used to go to Dodger Stadium when I was a boy, and bring our portable radio with us, just so we could watch the game live and listen to Vin Scully call the game. That was 40 years ago… God bless Vin Scully… I wish him the greatest of health, and if he wants, many more years of calling Dodger baseball!

      I pause the TV just after a pitch and wait for the radio to catch up and press play. I watch games on mlb.tv through the ps3 which can overlay the radio but not on road games I guess.
