O-Dog makes history in Dodger Stadium debut

Playing his first home game for the Dodgers, Orlando Hudson has hit for the cycle in his first four plate appearances today, becoming the first Dodgers player to do it in 39 years. Wes Parker was the last Dodgers player to hit for the cycle on May 7, 1970. O-Dog beat out an infield single in the first inning, homered into the front row in left field in the third, doubled to the wall in left-center in the fourth and just tripled to lead off the sixth, sliding in headfirst just ahead of the throw. Dodgers leading 7-1, bottom 6

    What a day for Orlando and the Dodgers. Now we need to figure a way for everyone (even the legendary Vin Scully) to stop calling him O-Dog. O-brother!!

    Imagine after all these years a Dodger finally done it.
    39 years is a long time. It was inevitable, sooner or later someone would do it. Maybe even the Cubs will at least win a pennant.
    I was so disappointed I didn’t see it unfold in normal game time progress but I seen it high lighted on the big screen in Citi Field, where I attended the Met’s Inaugural opener of the park.
