Dodgers Reel in the Marlins

Dodgers reel in the Marlins with Clayton Kershaw on the mound today on an early game on Getaway day.  I am so glad that for a change the Dodgers played early today as the schedule has not been nice to them on getaway days.

Kershaw pitched eight scoreless innings striking out six.  Kershaw improved his record to 13-7 and lowered his ERA to 1.72!  Kershaw also lined a single to left field to bring in Yasiel Puig for the first run.

El barbudo de Brian Wilson made his Dodger debut in the ninth inning.

With the Dodgers win and the D’Backs loss, the Dodgers magic number is

Among the Dodgers that have worn #27 are Pete Reiser, Clyde King, Carl Furillo, Gene Mauch, Tommy Lasorda, Bob Borkoswki, Don Demeter, Jim Gentile, Mike Sharperson, Kevin Brown, Jose Lima, James Loney, Matt Kemp.

The boys should be getting home later on tonight to start the three game series with the Red Sox.  The Red Sox did not play today.  Tomorrow’s matchup is Lackey against Ricky Nolasko.

Here’s to you Dodgers!  See you at OLOCR (Our Lady of Chavez Ravine)!!!

Reggie Smith will throw out a ceremonial first pitch on Friday.
