Freeway Series Finale 5/30/2013

Tonight marks the final game of the 4 game series the the Angels, with the Halos coming out victorious last night 4-3, as the Dodgers comeback, led by a couple of solo 9th inning shots by Adrian Gonzalez and Scott Van Slyke, would come up just short.  Other bad news from last night , Matt Kemp would come out of the game with a hamstring strain and today was placed on the 15 day DL.  Catcher Tim Federowicz has been called up and Andre Ethier will be starting at center for the Blue tonight, as they try to take 3 of 4 from the Halos.  Ted Lilly gets the nod for the Blue tonight against the Halos Justin Vargas…..

Friday Night at The Park, 4/5/2013

Notes on a Scorecard

piratesscorecard

Zack Greinke pitches 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball in his Dodger debut, striking out 6, and the bullpen does the rest as Dodger pitchers cruise past the Bucs, facing only 29 batters, 2 over the minimum

Dre, Matty and Adrian drive in their first RBI’s of the season, with Dre’s coming on a solo shot in the 3rd, providing all the scoring the Dodgers would need in beating the Bucs 3-0.

This would also be former Dodger catcher Russell Martin’s first game back in Dodger Stadium since 2010.  After the game, with the Pirates in town, I thought i’d get myself a sandwich from the Steel City Truck…

One of my favorite food trucks here in L.A., the Steel City Sandwich company has sandwiches that are a takeoff from the Pittsburgh favorite Primanti Brothers.  I always get the Steel City Sandwich…  Speaking of sandwiches, for those of you who may have payed Ike’s Place in San Francisco a visit, Ike will soon be opening one in Westwood.  ( YEAH !!! )

And for the fellow Dodger fans who have payed Ike’s Place up north a visit , you do know that some of his sandwiches are named after high-profile celebs and local athletes, and he does intend to keep the Matt Cain on the menu down here.  For the longest time i’ve been asking him to include a Matt Kemp , especially here in L.A.  .
