A quick stack of news and notes …

  • Today is the 65th anniversary of Vin Scully’s first Dodger broadcast.
  • Maury Wills is being inducted into the Washington D.C. Sports Hall of Fame on Sunday.
  • David Huff is back with Oklahoma City after clearing waivers and accepting an assignment there.
  • Adam Liberatore, called up before Friday’s game, pitched a perfect inning in his MLB debut.
  • Yasiel Puig is back in the Dodger lineup, but Carl Crawford is battling the flu. Taking Crawford’s place is Andre Ethier, who is 7 for 20 with three walks and three extra-base hits this season, for a 1.091 OPS.
  • Zack Greinke takes the hill tonight with a 0.69 ERA in 13 innings, with eight baserunners against 11 strikeouts.
  • Kenley Jansen threw off a mound today for the first time since his February foot surgery.
  • The year’s first Viva Los Dodgers (presented by State Farm and Time Warner Cable) will take place at 11 a.m. at the historic 76 station behind center field. If it’s warm out there, blame the red-hot Dodger slugger Adrian Gonzalez, who will make a special appearance from 11-11:30 a.m. to officially launch his community program, Adrian Gonzalez’s Viva Los Dodgers Days. Manny Mota will sign autographs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m., and musical entertainment will be provided by Latin Grammy-nominated Trio Ellas and Mexican regional artist Jesus Mendoza.
  • In addition, mega-DJ Steve Aoki will be at Dodger Stadium on Sunday for a pregame performance.
