Jered Weaver is a tough pitcher. I’m glad I jinxed his perfect game real good though there in the fifth inning. Vin Scully was dancing around it, but I just yelled it out to Steve: “Hey honey, come watch, Weaver is throwing a perfect game.” And BAM! a double by Andre Ethier, who comes around to score on a single by Skip Shumaker.

Unfortunately, even with the bases loaded later in the inning, we couldn’t score another run until the ninth, but by then it was too late. The Haloes were ahead 4-1, and after home runs by Adrian Gonzalez and Andy Van Slyke, the Dodgers fell a run short of tying the game.

Oh yeah, and Matt Kemp came out of the game with an injured hamstring. Last year, we rallied after that happened. Maybe this year, we’ll do the same.
