Here’s what they were saying after the game:
Vin Scully didn’t get to call a no-hitter last night after all. That’s OK.
Hearing Scully call Corey Seager‘s single with two outs in the ninth inning Thursday, the Dodgers’ only hit against Matt Moore in a 4-0 loss, was enough of a reward for anyone who watched the game on SportsNet LA. See for yourself:
SAN DIEGO– The two Dodgers on the National League team fared very differently in the first All-Star Game appearance for each.
Corey Seager struck out in his only at-bat against New York Yankees right-hander Dellin Betances. He swung at only one of the five pitches he saw, a 2-2 fastball clocked at 100 mph, and missed.
The rookie shortstop also committed an error in the field, bobbling a Mark Trumbo ground ball in the seventh inning.
Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen faced one batter in the eighth inning, Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, and struck him out on three pitches.

SAN DIEGO — Can spending 4 minutes and 30 seconds trying to hit home runs out of Petco Park ruin a hitter’s swing?
The Dodgers are about to find out.
SAN DIEGO — For Jeff Seager of Kannapolis, North Carolina, his first big league call-up was a long time coming.
The father of Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the mound tonight with the unique goal of trying to allow as many home runs as possible to his son at the Home Run Derby. The 56-year-old right hander has never been scored upon in a professional game, but he believes he has a strategy for success (or, in his case, failure).
“I’m going to go about it like I’m in the backyard,” Seager said. “I’m hoping it’s the same.”
