Against Arizona, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the dominant team they are supposed to be. Against everyone else, not so much.
Yasiel Puig's reaction to his home run off Madison Bumgarner, and the left-hander's response to Puig's ensuing celebration, was the subject of discussion in both clubhouses after another typical Giants-Dodgers game that produced plenty to talk about.
Once he found the outside corner, everything went smoothly for Madison Bumgarner. His only hiccup led to a quick confrontation with Yasiel Puig.
After Yasiel Puig carried the Dodgers early, it was little-known Scott Van Slyke and Drew Butera who came up big at the end of a long day.
Scott Van Slyke and Juan Uribe each tied the score with a clutch home run for the Dodgers. Then it was Aaron Hill's turn to get an even bigger hit against Chris Perez.
Opening day turned out to be a pretty g'day for the Los Angeles Dodgers and ace Clayton Kershaw.
Scott Van Slyke of the Los Angeles Dodgers has hit the first home run of the 2014 Major League Baseball season on opening day in Australia.
Starters C.J. Wilson of the Los Angeles Angels and Dan Haren of the Los Angeles Dodgers each pitched four shutout innings Thursday as the teams played to a 4-all, 10-inning tie.
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list Monday with joint inflammation in his troublesome left shoulder.
"He's good at missing just high, or just outside, or just inside," Van Slyke said. "He's really tall and he throws hard. He has an idea of what he wants to do and his ball moves. And he's a competitor, so he's going to be tough for a lot of years."
"Honestly, I think Puig overreacted a little bit. I don't know," Dodgers teammate Scott Van Slyke said. "He felt like he had an unfair pitch thrown to him the previous time up, and then he acted like he got him back. But Puig's an emotional guy. Some people just have that fire in them when they play, and it comes out sometimes. I wouldn't necessarily say that it's wrong or right. It's just that there's lots of different personalities in the world, and you've just got to learn to deal with them."
