The first inning of last night's Dodger game was one of the best 1st innings I have ever witnessed. Besides watching the boys in blue light up Maholm and score 4 runs on him in the bottom of the 1st, Juan Pierre also pulled off a very close bunt single and Matt Kemp slipped and slid between 2nd and 3rd base: the first fall caused him to get stuck in a run down, the second fall allowed him to avoid the tag and creep over to 3rd base to eventually score. After that I was pretty much dizzy from all of the yelling and laughing I did, so the rest is sort of a blur. Doesn't matter, the Dodgers won it in the first, threw some icing on the cake in the second with Rafi's home run, and then slapped on two runs in the bottom of the 7th to pour salt in the Buc's wounds. Dodgers won 8-1. Here's the box score, if you're interested. And here are a few photos:
