NL West matchup

The rain seems to be staying away for the moment, so the Dodgers will face the Giants for the first of about 20 times over the next six months.

There was a “B” game this morning at Camelback Ranch against the Sox and while I don’t have all the details, I know that as of 10:50 AM, the Dodgers trailed the White Sox 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth, despite having seven hits. Brian Giles was 2-for-2 with a couple of singles and Restovich, DeJesus, Reyes, Ausmus and Lindsey also had base hits.

On the mound, Scott Elbert allowed 3 runs (2 earned) in 2 IP while striking out three, walking one and hitting a batter.

Josh Linblom allowed one hit over two very quick scoreless innings.

Ramon Troncoso was on the mound with 2 on and one out in the fifth.

Over in Scottsdale, first pitch is in a few minutes and here’s the lineup:

Furcal SS

Kemp CF

Ethier RF

Ramirez DH

Loney 1B

Blake 3B

DeWitt 2B

Johnson LF

Ellis C

Billingsley RHP


Kemp homered in the 1st… good way to start against the Jints.

Still feels weird to be playing them this early.

Kemp still got it!….Wooohooo!
Wish I could be watching the games.
Wish Russell a fast recovery.

I was listening to a Sacramento sports talk show, and guess who they were talking about…………..yep, Frank and the fact that he spent $56,000 just on clothes last year. Their remark…………”That’s alot of underwear!” The sad thing is that I agree with them. I just hope the team does well enough to keep the media focused on their play rather than the divorce.

BTW – great job Matt!!!!! Many of more of those to come I am sure!!!!
