Officially, it’s our first must-win of the year. This place will be electric, I know it.
Here’s the lineup that’s going to win Game 3.
Nomar will be available to pinch-hit, we hope, and he’s won the Comeback Player of the Year Award in the National League. We’ll present him with the award during pregame ceremonies today.
If you’re coming to the game, make sure you get here early. Introductions on the field and Nomar’s ceremony will start around 4:40 but as you can imagine, we’re expecting a lot of people here today. That means parking will be crowded, will call lines will be longer than usual and you’ll want to be here for all the festivities.
Also keep in mind that if you’re coming up the 110, you’re battling traffic for the Coliseum, Dodger Stadium and Rose Bowl, not to mention Staples Center for the Kings’ opener tonight.
Let’s see if Maddux can duplicate Game 3 of the 2004 NLDS. Most of you remember that day as one of the most exciting in recent Dodger memory.
