Tonight was a great all around game for the Dodgers tonight. It was especially a great night for Hong-Chih Kuo. Not only did he pitch an outstanding seven innings, but he hit a long home run to rightfield that capped off three straight dingers by the Dodgers 7, 8 & 9 hitters. Kuo knew he got it all as he flung the bat high in the air.
On the radio after the game Matt Kemp said that he had seen Kuo hit many a ball that hard in the minors, but added that he certainly was not pimp'n it today. No, Matt. He sure was pimp'n it to the delight of 42,438 Dodgers fans in attendance.
Below are some photos I took at tonight's game.
UPDATE: BTW, Kuo is the first Taiwanese to hit a homerun in the major leagues. Contrats!
UPDATE II: Diamond Leung reminds me that the crowd did briefly start a Hong-Chih Kuo chant shortly after his homerun. A friend turned to me and said where's Hee-Seop Choi now? I said, "Who cares?"
