Good to get the season started on the right foot (or the left foot, depending on how you think), as the Los Angeles Dodgers get a win against San Diego, 4-1. Great game by Hiroki Kuroda (黒戸ーさん), and Big Jon Broxton got the Save. Loney was the catalyst, but the Dodgers got some bang for their buck by a booming straightaway centerfield HR (in Petco Park, nonetheless) by their star OFer… Matt “The Bison” Kemp!
Kemp might be making it on Bristol’s Top 10 tonight, as he had a stellar catch in centerfield that helped seal the game for the Blue at a critical juncture. I could tell it was a stellar catch, because Charley Steiner was yelling at the top of his lungs. I’m a Steiner fan, definitely snaps me back in the game if I start getting distracted. You know, by schoolwork, drawing, or anything else I should be ignoring on Opening Day.
Now a puzzling day off, then the SoCal chapter of Baseball’s Senior Circuit go at it again. After this long offseason, though, I’m sure I can find it in me to make it though this oddly-placed day off.
