DENVER – Wednesday was a significant day for the Dodgers in Los Angeles, where Magic Johnson and the other members of the new ownership group held an introductory news conference.
Inside of the visiting clubhouse at Coors Field?
Not so much.
Before their game against the Colorado Rockies, the five players in seats near the flat-screen television in the middle of the clubhouse were watching the Detroit Tigers face the Kansas City Royals.
But what happened later in the Dodgers' 8-5 loss to the Rockies was anything but ordinary.
For the first time in his career, Clayton Kershaw gave up three home runs in a single game. The Dodgers blew two leads and erased two deficits. They eventually fell in the bottom of the ninth inning when Scott Elbert served up a walk-off, three-run home run by pinch hitter Jason Giambi.
