Important “firsts” of the season

First pitch: Jose Urena (Marlins)

Interesting to say Happs got the first home run because the he was also first batter, basically he hit a home run on the first pitch.

First strike out: Jose Urena (Marlins)

Now finally the Dodgers’ injury list. On May 14th the first of the injuries happened with pitcher, Clayton Kershaw reportedly had left bicep tendonitis (it limits him playing by inflaming a muscle in his biceps). Tony Cingrani another Dodger pitcher had a left shoulder inflammation and is out for ten days. Once again Kershaw’s biceps had gotten the best of him. Now lastly Carl Crawford, an outfielder, tore an oblique muscle in April an is looking to come back soon.

Keep an eye out this season as changes will present themselves in a matter of seconds. Good luck to all teams this season, and don’t give up hope.
