Vin Scully to rest sore throat at home tonight
By Jon Weisman
Vin Scully said during Monday’s Dodger broadcast that he wanted to broadcast the duel between Clayton Kershaw and Stephen Strasburg “so badly” that he pushed himself to work despite a sore throat. Though that matchup didn’t materialize, Kershaw didn’t disappoint, pitching the Dodgers to a 4-1 victory.
Tonight, however, Scully will give himself a night off to rest his golden voice. Charley Steiner and Orel Hershiser will provide play-by-play and color on SportsNet LA, and Rick Monday and Kevin Kennedy will call the game on AM 570.
To paraphrase Scully, he is day to day, and we’ll know if he’s coming back to work Wednesday, Wednesday.
Before tonight’s game, Kenley Jansen will be honored for breaking the franchise saves record, and former record-holder Eric Gagne is scheduled to participate in the ceremony.
