De ja vu – In Phoenix Cain was given a 4 run lead in the first inning then the Giants did not have a man on base for almost 6 innings. Yesterday, 8-0 in the second inning, and there was no runner for the next 5 innings. Vogelsong did a great job of keeping the Giants in the game. Huff got the big win.
We are not complaining, but it seems strange. Still 4 out of the first 5 games,”ain’t” bad. Madison hopefully keeps it going today.
The Dodgers deserve credit for a spectacular Opening Day. 58,000 plus fans filled the stadium to witness 4 Navy Seals parachuting into Dodgers stadium from a C-130. We got to witness many Dodger greats including Sandy Colfax, Tommy Lasorda, and many others. USC marching band opened the ceremony. There was a special ceremony to honor Vince Scully, the Giants broadcaster. He made an appearance in a 65 blue mustang. His grandchildren carried an honorary pitchers mound on to the field. Magic Johnson escorted Lasorda to the field. The troops from all 5 services unfurled the flag and 3 opera singers from the National opera sand a wonderful rendition of the star-spangled banner.
The Dodgers fans were as rabid as their reputation. Le Anne had a coke spilled on her purse, and jeans and was pelted with peanuts from behind. We saw about a dozen Giants fans brave enough to attend the game. After the game some fans were gracious to Bert and congratulated him on the win.
Winning this series would be an incredible start to an incredible season.
