Vin Scully, who missed last night’s game with a sore throat, will be back in the broadcast booth tonight, the Dodgers announced.
Monday, Scully was limited to television duties only as he battled the sore throat. Today he will be heard for the first three innings on radio too, as usual.

Dusty Baker, the former Dodgers outfielder and current Washington Nationals manager, was asked to share his memories of Vin Scully growing up in Riverside. Here was Baker’s riff:
Vin Scully won’t be in the booth for tonight’s game as he rests a sore throat. Charley Steiner and Orel Hershiser will provide play-by-play and color on SportsNet LA, and Rick Monday and Kevin Kennedy will call the game on AM 570.
Scully is listed as day-to-day.
