After Alex Rios pulled the White Sox even with his second solo home run of the game in the top of the eighth, the Dodgers regained the upper hand in the bottom of the inning. Loney reached on a one-out pinch-hit single, moved to second on a walk, took third on a fielder’s choice and came home after Matt Thornton (2-4) uncorked a wild pitch.
Kenley Jansen worked a perfect ninth to save it for Ronald Belisario (2-0), who pitched 1 1/3 innings of relief.
Adam Dunn put the visitors in front with his major league-leading 23rd home run, a two-run shot in the top of the first inning. After Elian Herrera’s RBI double in the bottom of the first brought Los Angeles within a run, Paul Konerko and Orlando Hudson stretched the Chicago lead with run-scoring singles in the third and fourth innings, respectively.
Rios hit his first homer in the fifth to make it 5-1, but the Dodgers rallied with five runs in the sixth inning to claim the lead. Herrera tied the game with a two-out, two-run double and came in to score on a base hit by Juan Rivera.
Los Angeles starter Clayton Kershaw allowed five runs on eight hits in six innings, striking out seven and walked two. Chicago’s Chris Sale was charged with five runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking four.

Preview: Nationals at Dodgers
GAME: Washington Nationals (14-5) at Los Angeles Dodgers (13-6)
DATE/TIME: Friday, April 27 – 10:10 PM EST
WHERE: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
Washington had its five-game winning streak snapped by the San Diego Padres on Thursday, but the Nationals have still won six straight series to open the season. The Washington Nationals have received scoreless starts in eight of their 19 games, and they’ll need another strong outing when Ross Detwiler faces Clayton Kershaw</a> in Friday’s series opener against the Dodgers.
Los Angeles is off to a surprising 13-6 start, but there is some concern about closer Javy Guerra, who lost his second game in as many days on Wednesday. Guerra took a shot off his jaw in the ninth inning and gave up three runs on five straight singles, but he said he’ll be fine for this weekend’s series. Kenley Jansen appears ready to close, but manager Don Mattingly said he’s sticking with Guerra.

Aaron Michael Harang
The Los Angeles Dodgers now have the unbelievable talent and experience of veteran starting pitcher Aaron Harang in their rotation as they start their 2012-2013 Dodgers Season campaign. Despite having been sidelined in recent years by various health issues that put him on the disabled list multiple times, the veteran right-hander is coming off a rebound season, going 14-7 with a 3.64 ERA in 170.2 innings pitched.
The Dodgers are hopeful that Harang can stay healthy and keep up his performance as they finally landed the prolific pitcher late last year after having pursued Harang heavily in the past. The 33-year-old was signed to a 2-year, $12 million, free-agent contract with a mutual option for 2014 to help fill in the team after the departure of Hiroki Kuroda, slotting in as the Dodgers’ fourth starter.
“It made it more enticing, knowing it wasn’t something just spontaneous, like, ‘Let’s just go after this guy,’” Harang said. “It’s been in the back of my mind that they’ve wanted me a while. That made it an easier decision, knowing people want you and have been working at something for multiple years.”
For Harang, one of the added attractions of signing with the Dodgers was the proximity to home and playing at the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium. The San Diego native was born on May 9, 1978 in San Diego, California and continues to reside in the area with his family. While pitcher-friendly Dodger Stadium is not quite as spacious as Petco Park – or as much as a veritable oasis for pitchers of any quality – the 6-foot-7, 260-pound right-hander is confident that his addition to the Dodgers rotation is a good fit and believes there is a very good chance that the Dodgers will contend this season.
“I’m excited about the opportunity I have here. This is a really good ballclub here. We definitely have a shot to be there at the end.”
Harang was first drawn into professional baseball after being selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 22nd round of the 1996 MLB Draft (661st overall) but he did not sign with the team, opting to finish college. Following his graduation from San Diego State University, Harang was drafted and signed by the Texas Rangers in the 6th round of the 1999 MLB Draft (195th overall), kicking off a solid career that has seen him soar into the Major Leagues and develop into a top-caliber pitcher.

||At Owners’ Meeting, a committee formed to study integration, which includes Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey, delivers its secretive report defending the covert color barrier which exists in professional baseball. The absurd reasons given to why blacks shouldn’t be allowed to play in the big leagues include an absence of skills due to inferior training and lack of fundamentals and the need to respect Negro League contracts, but another lesser known motivation may have been profit as revealed later in the report, “The Negro leagues rent their parks in many cities from clubs in Organized Baseball (and) Club owners in the major leagues are reluctant to give up revenues amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars every year” as well as the fear white fans would be driven away if black players attracted more minorites to the ballpark.
||Scoring all the Phillies’ runs in the victory over the Reds, Del Wilber hits three solo homers making it the first time in major league history a player has accounted for all the runs in 3-0 game with home runs. The 32-year old catcher will only hit a total of 19 homers during his major league career.

||In an 8-2 victory at Yankee Stadium, Rangers Bump Wills and Toby Harrah hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs on consecutive pitches. It is only time in baseball history the feat has been accomplished.

||In the 5-4 loss to the Brewers, A’s Rickey Henderson breaks Lou Brock’s 1974 single season record of 118 stolen bases. By stealing a total of four bases Rickey ends the day with 122 and will finish the season with 130.
||With one out in the bottom of the eleventh inning and the visiting Mets ahead, 6-5, Padres infielder Tim Flannery lines a single to center field where Lenny Dykstra comes up throwing to nail the runner trying to score from second base. Knocked on his back by Gary Templeton, catcher John Gibbons, from a prone position, throws a strike to Howard Johnson who tags out Flannery, trying to get to third base, ending the game with an unusual 8-2-5 double play.

||With his 17th dinger this month, Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa ties the National League record for August homers established by Willie Mays in 1965. Tiger Rudy York set the major league mark going yard 18 times in the eighth month of 1937.
||Jeff Kent becomes the first player to hit 300 homers as a second baseman. The Dodger infielder, who has surpassed Ryne Sandberg’s total of 277 last September, is the major league leader at this position with Joe Gordon holding the American League record with 246 round-trippers.
||After losing a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning against the Yomiuri Giants earlier in the season, Fumiya Nishiguchi (16-4) sees his perfect game against the expansion Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles go into extra innings. The Seibu Lions right-hander gives up a hit and has to settle for a 10-inning complete game shutout.

The Marlins became an expansion team only in 1993, so they are relatively new to the MLB. But having won the World Series twice in spite of being such a young team, the Marlins are definitely a strong team to contend with. Los Angeles Dodgers vs Florida Marlins tickets are always a popular choice for baseball fans. These two teams are much loved and when they play, there is a lot on the line.
Dodgers’ Blake Hawksworth was sidelined for the last week due to a strained groin. After his rehabilitation with class-A Rancho Cucamonga, Hawksowrth will be activated when the Dodgers open a six-game homestand vs. the Florida Marlins on 27 May 2011. Andrie Ethier and Matt Kemp bring a great deal of excitement with every swing of the bat. Florida Marlins’ Hard hitters Chris Coghlan and Hanley Ramirez and pitcher Josh Johnson, along with a great roster of skilled players, will ensure that the Dodgers are given a run for their money.
For a true baseball fan, eating a Dodger dog while watching a Dodger game at the Dodger Stadium is an incredible experience.
Fans say that the best seats for an afternoon game are at the odd numbered sections; as the day goes by, the sun ends up behind you rather than shine right onto your face. If you like a view of the entire stadium, sit directly above the home plate in the Top Deck. Pavilion Seating (or the seats in the outfield) are also popular among fans. Sitting in the pavilions will give you a really different view of the park, and there is every chance of you catching a homerun.
Wherever you sit, Dodgers vs. Marlins will be a great show. The baseball action along with the scenic view of downtown LA and San Gabriel Mountains promise to be a great experience. Go on and get your Dodgers vs. Marlin tickets now.

The last time the L.A. Dodgers faced the S.F. Giants it was September 17, 2010. After a grueling game the Dodgers walked away with their heads tucked and a looming scoreboard of Giants 10-2. It was a bitter evening for the Dodgers. And one likely not forgotten as Dodgers Opening Day 2011 finally arrives. What a way to launch a new season! The Dodgers will once again take on century-old rivals and ever-so-hated San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium today at 5:00 pm. Broadcast by ESPN, each year Los Angeles Dodgers fans are clambering for their seats, planning their tickets months in advance. As a salty tradition continues, a glimpse into the history behind the rivalry makes the stakes seem that much higher.
The feud between the L.A. Dodgers vs.the S.F Giants is set back once upon a time when both teams were playing out of New York City. The Dodgers were then the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Giants were then the Manhattan Giants. The dispute was bitter as the Giants looked on their Brooklyn counterparts with disdain and disgust. And financially it was almost impossible to support a team based in Brooklyn- fans simply weren’t as interested! So, in 1957, Dodgers owner and wealthy businessman Walter O’ Malley decided to relocate the Dodgers. He is also responsible for the implementation of Dodger Stadium. Somewhere along the line O’ Malley talked Giants owner Horace Stoneham to maintain the rivalry between the infamous New York baseball teams. He urged Stoneham to consider also taking his Giants to California. Though the idea seemed ludicrous at the time, it was a decision that has proven lucrative today. Therefore, it seemed only natural that Stoneham would take his boys to San Francisco. After all, Los Angeles and San Francisco have always had their own rivalry; economically, culturally, and politically the two cities have been neck-to-neck for who has more.
To date the Giants vs. Dodgers have maintained an even balance where one fan can’t say to another their team is bar none the best. Each team has eighteen National League Pennants, more than any other franchise in the MLB, as well as six World Series Titles. The Giants 2010 World Series was their first since moving to California. And the Dodgers have not tasted such a victory since 1988. So as today kicks off a new start for each team, it is highly symbolic to long-time fans of the rivalry.
