Doozy of a game between the Royals and Angels today. Don't think we'll see that kind of scoring in Los Angeles tonight.

In other news ...

  • The Indians released ex-Dodger first-round pick Preston Mattingly, the son of Dodger manager Don Mattingly who was dealt to Cleveland last fall. The Indians did not release Carlos Santana, who started a triple play while playing first base today and is 6 for 13 with a walk and home run so far this season.

  • Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. notes that the Dodgers' early season home run drought is already its longest in nine seasons, and counting.
