A cold an blustery start to the season. The kids kept themselves warm with an active and fun baseball game.
The Dodgers came out on top powered by their rookies - First ever hits for Daithi (who went on to score), Narkin (RBI), and Nick (scored); Julien walked and scored too!
Veterans Alex (two hits, good pitching, and a diving catch to close the first inning) and Zoe (hit, pitched as the closer, good play at first) helped out; J Chu and Matt also pitched, and every Dodger got on base one way or another.
The Braves didn't solve Dodger pitching until the last inning, but a comeback (Laura, Bryce and Liam scoring, bases loaded at the end) kept things interesting.
Good pitching from Alan, Abdul, Lucas, and Bryce (not many walks - the Dodgers had to hit), and some great fielding (nice outs at first and home, and every hit held to a single!) showed the Braves are ready for spring (whenever it comes...)
Dodgers: Gough-Schnapp 29, Chu 18, Poirier 17, Poklop 11
Braves: Chang 32, Cali 44, Berman 6, Swope 30
