Many Angelenos are basking in the glow of last night's win against the Houston Astros - and the fact that the Dodgers are playing in the World Series at all.
It's been awhile since fans got to enjoy their boys in blue playing this late into the season.
Arlene Karno, a longtime Dodger supporter, summed it up best:
"It was the most interesting year I feel like I've ever experienced as a Dodger fan and I've gone through...something like 55 of them? There was a lot of suffering that came before this incredibly satisfying moment."
Fan Jazmin Ortega was at the stadium to enjoy the moment on Tuesday. She cheered her team to victory, as they took Game 1.
"In some ways, it was an ordinary but it was also an extraordinary game in that, we're in the World Series and this is really what it all comes up to. Seeing [Chris Taylor get] a home run and getting everybody excited and having that energy throughout the same energy throughout the stadium. It was the loudest I've ever heard a Dodger crowd at Dodger Stadium."
And Ortega would know how Dodger crowds react at games. She's been part of them for a LONG time.
"One of my earliest memories is the 1988 World Series. It really began with my mom, she became a fan in the 80's just by listening to Jaime Jarrin on the radio, just turning the dial on a weekend and coming upon his voice. She learned about baseball through him and I learned about baseball through my mom."
Yeah, first pitch the Dodgers saw and they took a 1-0 lead. The Astros tied it with a home run of their own in the 4th and the game stayed locked at one until postseason season hero Justin Turner came to the plate in the 6th with Taylor on first base.
Game 1 would end with the score at 3-1. In between, Clayton Kershaw struck out 11 and Game 2 is tonight. Andy and Brian Kamenetzky joined A Martinez to analyze last night's two-hour game and look ahead to Wednesday night's. The big thing to look forward to? The Astro's breaking out their ace pitcher Justin Verlander.
"He is 9 and 0 since being acquired by the Houston Astros from the Detroit Tigers," Brian explained, " So if the Dodgers can get by this one with a win, things look very good for the rest of the series."
