You’re either lounging back or out on the town on this early Friday evening. So the home opener didnt exactly go as planned as the Dodgers fell to the Giants 8-4 . Hyun-Jin Ryu, who had been spectacular in his two previous starts, was shelled today in his shortest outing of his career, lasting only 2 innings , giving up 8 runs, 6 of them after retiring the first two batters in the top 1st.
But you had to like the way the bullpen, a minor concern early this year, stepped up , especially Brandon League of all people. The Dodgers would actually outhit the Giants, including solo shots by Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier and an RBI double by Matt Kemp, playing in his forst game this season after it eas announced before the game that Yasiel Puig would be benched for arriving late to the yard.
We still got 156 of these to go. These games happen folks. Even on home openers…..
WELCOME BACK MATT !!!
Ethier with a solo shot today, his first of the season
Ah yeah…. Look at all that Dodger greatness, all the way from Vin to Sandy….
