Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully will be the voice of the Dodgers for at least one more season. Scully has been calling Dodger games for 61 years and has been the only voice associated with the Dodgers for generations, dating back to the days of when the team was in Brooklyn.
He announced over the weekend that he will continue to broadcast Dodger home games and games against the National League and American League West teams.
Scully might be the only thing making the Dodgers worth watching and listening to these days. The Dodgers lost to the visiting Cincinnati Reds, 5-2, and are now only one game over .500.
Clayton Kershaw struck out 11 Reds batters, but he walked five and gave up three runs on five hits in seven innings.
Joey Votto hit a solo home run in the sixth inning and drove in three runs for the surging Reds.
The Dodgers have lost five of their past eight games, are mired in fourth place in the National League West standings and are 12 games out of first place.
