August 16 Game Recap: "Prepare for Extra Innings"

I'm a little late on posting this (this is Steve Sax here), but fellow Son Alex Cora snapped these pictures from the Dodgers-Astros game on August 16 (Dodgers 6, Astros 2). Given that these shots came up in the sixth inning, when the Dodgers were stoked to a six-run lead, isn't the phrase "Prepare for Extra Innings" a little disheartening to fans of the home team?

I mean, I know it's the catchphrase for Las Vegas, but it seems to me that this add was poorly timed. Who is running sponsorship marketing here? Don't tell me it's still Drew McCourt!
