The Dodgers take on the White Sox this afternoon on this, the holiest of days: Clayton Kershaw’s birthday.
Also of note: Joe Davis is making his debut as the Dodgers’ play-by-play guy. Pretty excited about what he brings to the booth. My one complaint: He’s somehow younger than me.
No scoring from anyone, as Sale and Kershaw set the tone early.
The Dodgers don’t get anything going, but Chicago starts the scoring with a pair.
Third Inning: Dodgers trail 2-0
Kendrick’s triple scores Kiké from first! He had a double earlier in the game and has been seeing the ball really well over the last couple games.
Fourth Inning: Dodgers trail 2-1
Alex Guerrero homers to tie the game!
Fifth Inning: Tied at 2-2
Both sides held scoreless in this inning, and that’ll probably be it for Kershaw. 72 pitches through 5 innings.
Sixth Inning: Tied at 2-2
Neither team notches a run in the inning, and Louis Coleman looked great on the mound in the bottom half.
Seventh Inning: Tied at 2-2
White Sox take a 4-2 lead after a two-run home run off of Kenley Jansen.
Eight Inning: Dodgers trail 4-2
Nothing doing for either side in the eighth, and we head to the final frame.
Ninth Inning: Dodgers trail 4-2
Los Angeles gets nothing in the ninth, and this one is over. There’s always tomorrow!
FINAL SCORE: WHITE SOX 4, DODGERS 2
