On a beautiful Thursday night for Dodger Stadium to celebrate the sixtieth year, the Los Angeles Dodgers swatted the Cincinnati Reds 9-to-3.

Jaime Jarrin threw out the ceremonial first pitch as he begins his sixty-second season and his last. He is as beloved in the Hispanic community as Vin Scully is in the English-speaking community, and in 1998, Jarrin earned the Ford C. Frick Award, meaning he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Orel Hershiser returned to the SportsNetLA broadcast booth. He and Joe Davis, the new lead baseball broadcaster for FOX Sports, makes a special broadcasting team.

In the first inning, the Dodgers linked five singles for three runs. In the eighth, they scored six runs, highlighted by Will Smith’s three-run homer.

Walker Buehler pitched satisfactorily even though he did not have a good fastball. He showcased his maturity when he used his off-speed pitches effectively. In his 5.2 innings, while throwing 98 pitches, he allowed 2 runs.

While David Price allowed a solo homer during his 1.1 innings, the Dodger bullpen continued to perform fantastically. Blake Treinen and Evan Phillips baffled the Reds who are tanking two seasons after being a playoff team.
