RHP Jhoulys Chacin vs. RHP Zack Greinke

Tonight's game starts at 7:10 PM.  Auto gates open at 4:30 PM, and stadium gates open at 5:00 PM. The first 40,000 fans will receive Dodgers facsimile autograph/art ball.  See it on the right.  BTW, this giveaway will given out when you exit the game - I guess they are worried about fans throwing them onto the field during gameplay.

UPDATE:  The Los Angeles Kings are bringing the Stanley Cup to the game for a special pregame ceremony.  It is not known yet who will be in attendance, but I'd be willing to bet that defenseman Matt Greene will definitely be there - he is a bigtime Dodger fan.

Holly Robinson Peete, actress and philanthropist for Autism Awareness, will sing the national anthem.  Ed Asner will officially start the game with “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” alongside his son, Matthew Asner, the executive director of Autism Speaks Southern California. GRAMMY award nominated R&B singer Trey Songz will throw an honorary first pitch. Kevin O’Leary, from “Shark Tank,” will throw the ceremonial first pitch and announce the Dodgers’ starting lineup.
