Disaster narrowly averted

With the odd vantage point from the unusually low press box here in San Francisco, at night, when the sky is completely black and the ballpark is all lit up, you can look out past Levi’s Landing in right field and see nothing but sheer darkness. That creates a really nice contrast to the white seagulls that fly around here constantly during and after games, so they show up really well — and so does, say, any white substance that happens to fall from one of those seagulls. I was watching one last night between innings, and when this particular seagull happened to, ummmmm, lighten his load, I am certain I saw it land not 10 feet from Dodgers RF Matt Kemp as he was making his pre-inning warmup tosses. But no one was going to dump on the Dodgers’ party last night. They won for the 18th time in 22 games here dating to the start of 2006.
