Carter recalled

You guys are the first to find out that we’re bringing Lance Carter back up and have optioned Franquelis Osoria back to Las Vegas. Lance was 1-1 with three saves and a 1.08 ERA for the 51s and seems to have gained his control back.

Meanwhile, I just got back from Universal Studios Hollywood, where Derek Lowe and "Sweet" Lou Johnson spent time with some youngsters, signing autographs and giving pitching lessons to the kids. One of them earned the right to throw out the first pitch at an upcoming Dodger game, which must be pretty cool if you’re a kid.

And for those who hadn’t heard, all kids 14 and under that come to tomorrow’s game get a free ticket to Universal Studios Hollywood as part of our new agreement with the theme park.

Lineups to follow in a couple hours. I’ve pasted a couple interleague notes below and congrats to Graham Clancy at the University of Oregon, who realized that I had hidden a code in yesterday’s blog in honor of the opening of The Da Vinci Code. He won four field level tickets to an upcoming game and I might try and do more interactive stuff like that on the blog, if you guys are interested.

INTERLEAGUE BATTLE – Tonight marks the start of Interleague Play and the Dodgers enter the game with a 75-71 (.514) all-time mark against the American League.

INTERLEAGUE PITCHER’S DUEL – Tonight’s starter, Aaron Sele, is tied with Mike Mussina for second all-time in Interleague victories with 18, one behind Greg Maddux. His opponent, former Dodger Jeff Weaver, is tied for ninth with 14 wins. The duo makes up two of the 81 players in Major League history to have played for both the Dodgers and Angels.

An interactive game: Guess who the Dodgers draft in the first round of this years draft!

whoever has the most right gueses at 7-26-31, wins field level tickets!

or something like that. The DVC thing was pretty creative as well.

“I might try and do more interactive stuff like that on the blog, if you guys are interested.”

that would be really cool.

“One of them earned the right to throw out the first pitch at an upcoming Dodger game, which must be pretty cool if you’re a kid.”

I’d say that’s pretty cool if you’re just about anybody.

And the interactive stuff on the blog is a great idea.

I think interactive stuff like that would be really cool.
