Rubber game: Dodgers Angels.

Dodgers lost the first game with the Angels 3-2. Isringhausen won it and Kenley Jansen lost it. Kenley is in my baseball fantasy team, Los Locos Azules.

BUT! we know pitchers got to have a short memory. Kenley came back on Tuesday and won the game. Dodgers were trailing on this one but with the score 2-2 (after Ethier tying the game), ex-Angel Juan Rivera went Boom! with a 3-run homerun! We went crazy at the stadium!

It was also Mike Sciocia’s bobblehead night. I don’t think the bobblehead resembles him but I am glad to have it. Scioscia used to be a favorite of mine back when I started attending games. Always had a soft spot for catchers and pitchers.

Not a good day for honorees at the ballpark since Jaime Jarrin who was honored the night before did not get a win for his team. But it was a special night with all the tributes paid to Jaime Jarrin.

After throwing out the first pitch along with his son Jorge Jarrin and his grandson Stefan Jarrin, Jaime went to the mike to say “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball” but first he said it in Spanish “Es La Hora de el Beisbol de los Dodgers”

Another person that threw out the first pitch was the Veteran of the Day. Dodgers honored a Veteran every day. This time it was 102 year old Bea Cohen, the oldest living female World War II Veteran.

Monday was also the day the Kings won the Stanley Cup! 50,559 showed up at Dodger Stadium even with the Kings playing at Staple Center.

For tonight Dodger game, the Stanley Cup Champions Los Angeles Kings are bringing the Stanley Cup trophy and will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Congratulations Kings! Let’s Go Dodgers! Let’s Go!

Hurray for Our First Place Dodgers with a record of 30-13

This Dodger team is very excited to watch. Dodgers came from behind last night to win 8-7 with a different hero in Ivan De Jesus Jr. I started jumping up and down in my living room!

Ted Lilly goes to the mound tonight with his 5-0 record against Diamond-Backs Lefty Saunders. Dodgers going for the sweep

I saw the cover of Sports Illustrated with Magic and Kemp online

So I walked to the corner liquor store to see if they had the SI magazine.

me: Do you have any magazines?
Liquor Store owner: What are you looking for?
me: Sports Illustrated
Liquor Store owner: *grins* No.

I guess they only had other magazine behind the counter. No worries, I will stop at Vroman's bookstore in Pasadena on my way home.

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings! They are going to the STanley Cup finals! GO Dodgers! GO KIngs! I LOVE LA!

Kershaw, Dodgers, Kings, Coyotes and Snakes oh my!

Congratulations to Kershaw for winning the National League Player of the Week honors! Kershaw took the mound twice last week against the DiamondBacks on Monday and on Saturday against the Cardinals. He pitched 7 scoreless innings against the Snakes and a complete game 9 inning shutout agains the Cardinals. The shutout extended Kershaws scoreless innings streak to 22, dating back to his May 8 start vs. the Giants.

Dodgers are in Phoenix playing the Snakes. With Capuano on the mound, the Dodgers defeated Corbin and the Snakes by the score of 6-1. Capuano’s record is the same as yesterday’s score 6-1. Harang takes the mound tonight against Kahill.

When Treanor hit the homerun yesterday I was thinking to myself “Boy, this team reminds me of the 1988 team” I was listening to the first innings on the radio on my way home. When I got home my brother Victor made the same comment. I am sure is in a lot of Dodger fans that this team resembles 1988. I want to be cautious but I love how the replacement players are stepping up.

Is scary to think that Mark Ellis could have lost his leg. Vin Scully said that the doctors said that Six more hours and they would hae had to amputate if it wasn’t for the Dodger trainer’s decision to send him to the hospital. Get better Mark Ellis.

The Kings are also in Phoenix! They lead the series 3-1 against the Coyotes. Get it done Kings! I LOVE LA! Go Kings! Go Dodgers!

I will see the games on delay when I get home. I am heading to Pasadena to have dinner and see Howie Levine sing. Some of you might know Howie. He works at Dodger Stadium and occasionally sings the National Anthem and God Bless America.

Below is the information:
