Hiroki Kuroda (2-0, 1.72) vs. Jaime Garcia (1-0, 0.60).
Pity the poor Dodgers promotions department. They include beer in their half-price food & drink promotion, then have to pull it following the Bryan Stow incident. Tonight is Purple and Gold LA Cap Night at Dodger Stadium, and it comes on the heels of Kobe Bryant's $100,000 fine for using homophobic language. What's next — people start discovering smallpox in their Dodgers Snuggies?
Fortunately, the team is bringing in some famous figures to class up the joint tonight:
NBA Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Bill Sharman, who also played in the Dodgers’ minor league system in the 1950s, will throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Long-time Lakers anthem singer and good luck charm Jeffrey Osborne will perform the National Anthem and God Bless America.
Will the Laker luck Stay With Us Tonight? Will Matt Kemp hit a ball that will be carried out of Dodger Stadium On the Wings of Love? Will the Dodgers get some Woo Woo wood on the ball? If not, Don't You Get So Mad.
