Rihanna Roots on Dodgers as LA Rolls Past AZ

Ah, the home opener of baseball season…there’s nothing sweeeter than when Vin Scully utters those wonderful words, “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” 

And the Dodgers powered through the game, knocking in four home runs, more than doubling their total from the first six games of the season.  Manny Ramirez, Casey Blake, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier all contributed bombs.  It wasn’t perfect as the bullpen once again struggled to maintain the lead they were given by starter Clayton Kershaw, but everything ended well. as the Dodgers survived with an 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Rather than recapping the game as many other fine Dodger bloggers have already done today, we wanted to share some of today’s great moments, as captured by Dodgers photographer Jon SooHoo. Enjoy!

    Good stuff! Looks like the Dodgers are competing with the Lakers on celeb sightings! Only if they can lure Jack to become a Dodger Stadium staple.

  2. Yeah, the Dodgers generally do well with certain celebrities, but Rihanna certainly kicks it up a few notches with the cool kids. Plus, if Rihanna was going to cheer on a baseball team, it SHOULD be the Dodgers, right?

  3. I’m proud of these young players; Ethier and Kemp both. Another thing; I’m glad Rhianna is not with another woman beater. He’s no coward. Hopefully, he is mature inside, as well.

  4. I am a die hard fan of Rihanna, i love her hair, i love her voice and i love her body. *
