A few observations so far:
The San Marino Little League was out tonight! As a former San Marino Little Leaguer, I was psyched to see the kids out for the game and catching a little BP (pictures coming later).
Ken Griffey Jr. isn’t playing tonight, but is expected to start in the outfield for the next two games. Hopefully he’ll come in as a pinch hitter later in the game as I’ve really been looking forward to seeing that swing again.
Beltre’s shoulder seems to be an ongoing problem, acknowledging before the game that it’s pretty much bothering him all the time.
Pau Gasol looked sharp throwing out the first pitch from the rubber in what turns out to be his first professional baseball game!
Speaking of looking sharp…Kershaw is looking really good…five strikeouts over the first three innings.
Ethier goes deep to left-center field with a three-run bomb…gotta love it.
8:03: the crowd behind home plate begins chanting “Let’s Go Lakers!” Pau gives the fans a wave and a smile to say thanks.
8:08: Nice pitching by Kershaw to get Jojima to ground into that double-play!
Ok, all updates will now be in the comments section so this page isn’t being constantly updated…
