MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Dodgers news ...

The Dodgers took the series opener against the Padres on Tuesday night. You can read the TBLA game recap here.

Max Muncy hit a grand slam in Tuesday night’s win and it was glorious.

The Braves lost on Tuesday, which allowed the Dodgers to clinch home field advantage through at least the National League Championship Series. That’s, of course, if they make it that far.

Around the league ...

The Giants-Rockies game on Tuesday was quite interesting.

The Diamondbacks-Cardinals game, too, lasted very long. And I don’t want to stay up long enough to wait for the end of the game ... so here’s something interesting that happened before the game concluded.

Major League Baseball set the strikeout record the 12th season in a row. Yikes. You can read more about this on ESPN.

The Wall Street Journal caught up with Bud Selig, to talk about his journey to becoming MLB commissioner. You can read the story here.

My dad loved to fish. On Saturdays, he went with two of his friends to a lake west of Milwaukee. I had no interest, but I wanted to make him happy. So I agreed to go. In the boat, I had my transistor radio and listened to a White Sox-Yankees game. One of his friends said, “Hey, Duke, tell the kid to shut that stupid radio off. He’s scaring off the fish.”

I said, “I’ll tell you what. Drop me on the island in the middle of the lake. I’ll sit there and listen to the game and you guys can pick me up when you’re finished.”

I never went fishing with him again. Instead, I went with my mother to almost every local Brewers game.
