Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Tree

Tony Orlando is here. He was sitting in Frank McCourt’s box for a few innings, and they showed him on the big board, arm in arm with Tommy Lasorda. The Dodgers didn’t knock three times on the ceiling, but they did score four times in the first.

Penny is sailing along, working on a three hit shutout — with an assist from that notorious low wall down in the leftfield corner. Rickie Weeks’ two-out double in the fifth bounced into the front row down there, forcing Corey Hart to hold at third when he might have scored from first. Tony Gwynn then popped up to end the inning, stranding both runners. Dodgers 4, Brewers 0, bottom 5
