Vin Scully will return to Dodgers broadcasting booth in 2011


The Los Angeles Dodgers made an announcement on Sunday that thrilled not only their fans, but fans of Major League Baseball who love listening to a favorite broadcaster.

The team announced that Vin Scully, their 82-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster will call the play-by-play for all 81 home games and all road games against the National League West opponents, Arizona, San Diego, San Francisco and Colorado.

The Dodgers and Major League Baseball have reported that Scully’s 61 years of service is by far the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history.

Scully, the winner of the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick award for broadcasting in 1982, has called several memorable games: 19 n0-hitters, 25 World Series, 12 All-Star Games and three perfect games including the 1956 World Series gem pitched by Don Larsen.

Tigers sweep Indians behind Rhymes & Verlander (Sunday)

The Detroit Tigers have some good young prospects getting a chance to play due to injuries. Austin Jackson, Brennan Boesch and Will Rhymes have all done well when called upon.

On Saturday, Jackson and Boesch became the first pair of Detroit rookies to reach 100 hits in a season since Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell.

Justin Verlander (MLB)

On Sunday, it was Rhymes’ turn to shine. In the lineup while Carlos Guillen recovers from a knee injury, Rhymes had a hit and scored a run in each of the first three innings. He finished with a career-best four hits as the Tigers completed a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians with an 8-1 win on Sunday.

Will Rhymes (MLB)

Detroit outscored Cleveland 19-3 in the lopsided weekend series and pays back the Indians for a four-game sweep of the Tigers in Cleveland in June.

Indians get dominated by Galarraga again; lose 6-0 (Friday)

The Indians simply can’t hit Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga.

Galarraga was facing the Indians for the first time since his near-perfect game on June 2,  threw seven shutout innings to lead Detroit to a 6-0 win Friday night at Comerica Park.

Galarraga says he feels comfortable pitching against Cleveland, allowing just four hits in 16 scoreless innings this year.

For the first half of this game, Galarraga was no-hitting the Indians again, setting down the first 14 Cleveland batters.

Jayson Nix put to rest any no-hit thoughts with a double just over the glove of Tigers left fielder Don Kelly.

Galarraga, now 4-5 on the season, allowed three hits and matched his career-high with eight strikeouts. Overall against Cleveland before the two starts this year, he was 1-4 with a 5.12 ERA in 12 starts.

Justin Masterson (4-12) was the loser. He has given up at least 10 hits in a start four times in 2010, tied for fifth in the major leagues.

Cueto gives up 4 homers in 8-5 loss to Los Angeles (Saturday)

The Cincinnati Reds had hoped that Johnny Cueto would come back from his seven-game suspension fresh with renewed vigor. Instead, he was rusty and gave up four homers in a losing effort.

Andre Eithier, Jay Gibbons, Matt Kemp and Ryan Theriot all reached the outfield bleacher seats at Dodger Stadium, as LA snapped the Reds’ seven-game winning streak with an 8-5 victory Saturday night.

Chad Billingsley (10-7) gave up three runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings and struck out seven.

Pitching on an unheard of 10 days rest, Cueto’s rustiness was noticeable from the beginning of the game. This was his first start since an 11-3 loss to St. Louis on which he received a suspension for kicking several Cardinals players during a bench-clearing melee, while he was being pinned up against the home plate screen. Cueto (11-4) only lasted three innings, giving up five runs and five hits.
