Adrian Gonzales debut as a Dodger, Vin Scully will be back next year! Yankees & Red Sox in 2013

Adrian Gonzalez Debut as a Dodger

“Looks like a another perfect day!  I love LA!”   That is how Saturday 8/25/2012 turned out to be!   Adrian Gonzalez was at the game in time to be in the lineup.  Adrian comes to his  first at bat as a Dodger with Mark Ellis and El Cochito Luis Cruz on.  Next thing you know Adrian goes

A three run homerun!   Welcome to Hollywood!  Welcome to LA Adrian! 

 

There were four BOOMS at the stadium:    Giancarlo Stanton for the Marlins.  Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Ellis and Andre Ethier for the Dodgers.  

Andre Ethier breaks record of Consecutive Hits  with 10 STRAIGHT HITS

Andre tied the LA record for Consecutive Hits of  nine set by Ron Cey.  Andre then broke that record with his 10 consecutive hit in the seventh inning.  He tied a Dodger record set in 1919 by first baseman Ed Konetchy.   In addition, Andre also was a triple short of a cycle.  Mark Ellis also was short of a cycle. 

KERSHAW gets win #12

Kershaw pitched a three hitter giving up two runs and striking out eight for his 12th win.  Final score:  Dodgers 8, Marlins 2. 

VIN SCULLY WE LOVE YOU!  WE LOVE YOU MORE FOR COMING BACK NEXT YEAR!

Could Saturday night get any better?   Well yes!   Vin Scully announced that he is coming back in 2013! 

It is Vin Scully Bobblehead Thursday August 30th when the Dodgers face the Arizona D’Backs. 

And come 2013, the Dodgers finally will go to Yankee Stadium!   The Red Sox will be coming to Dodger Stadium in August of 2013.

Yesterday was awesome! I loved the atmosphere at the stadium. It was a total playoff vibe.

How do you know the schedule details about Yankee Stadium and the Red Sox coming? Is the 2013 schedule already up?

Mateo,
The Dodgers announced that they are finally going to Yankee Stadium next year. About Red Sox a friend emailed me about it that he is coming in August when the Red Sox are in town. He roots for both Red Sox and Dodgers.

Man that Dodger uniform sure does look smart. A-Gon looks pretty good sportin’ it. L.A. has a bright (and expensive) future.
