“Looks like a another perfect day! I love LA!” That is how Saturday 8/25/2012 turned out to be! Adrian Gonzalez was at the game in time to be in the lineup. Adrian comes to his first at bat as a Dodger with Mark Ellis and El Cochito Luis Cruz on. Next thing you know Adrian goes
A three run homerun! Welcome to Hollywood! Welcome to LA Adrian!
There were four BOOMS at the stadium: Giancarlo Stanton for the Marlins. Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Ellis and Andre Ethier for the Dodgers.
Andre Ethier breaks record of Consecutive Hits with 10 STRAIGHT HITS
Andre tied the LA record for Consecutive Hits of nine set by Ron Cey. Andre then broke that record with his 10 consecutive hit in the seventh inning. He tied a Dodger record set in 1919 by first baseman Ed Konetchy. In addition, Andre also was a triple short of a cycle. Mark Ellis also was short of a cycle.
KERSHAW gets win #12
Kershaw pitched a three hitter giving up two runs and striking out eight for his 12th win. Final score: Dodgers 8, Marlins 2.

It is Vin Scully Bobblehead Thursday August 30th when the Dodgers face the Arizona D’Backs.
And come 2013, the Dodgers finally will go to Yankee Stadium! The Red Sox will be coming to Dodger Stadium in August of 2013.
I know I’ve been a little down with the Dodgers getting swept at Boston and that running blunders of game two against the Angels but we won last night in big fashion 10 -6!! woohoo!
And tonight my boys in blue are back at OLOCR _Our Lady of Chavez Ravine that is Dodger Stadium, our Blue Heaven on Earth!

The matchup for tonight’s game is:
CC Sabathia against Vicente Padilla.
Remember that homerun CC Sabathia hit at Dodger Stadium during that interleague game in when he was with Cleveland? We were both at the game in 2008 but could not remember who he hit the HR off of? Guess who?
Chan Ho Park! I am sure CC is looking forward to swinging the bat again.
Padilla: Make sure we don’t see this:
I want to see this:
I am thinking “Maybe Sandy Koufax would be in attendance!
It got to be a little weird for Joe Torre seeing the Yankees in town. BTW, Torre and Jeff: When am I getting my baseball? Last time I received a text from Jeff from the Safe at Home Foundation, he said he had my baseball signed by Joe and Koufax in a safe place.
Let’s go Dodgers Let’s Go!
Vin Scully: We Love you!!
