Hatcher to DL, Culberson recalled from Triple-A OKC

To the surprise of no one, struggling Dodgers right-hander Chris Hatcher has been replaced on the Dodgers 25-man roster by utility infielder Charlie Culberson.

Neil Armstrong Flag Moon - NASA FP

The night Vin Scully was overshadowed

It was much like any other typical Dodgers-Giants game except for one difference, one enormous difference.
