Later in the day, Hart completed the sweep of West with a 10-5 win in the second game of a doubleheader. Persico drove in two runs with a triple in a five-run third inning for Hart.

To make matters worse, Ronald Belisario is having visa problems and hasn’t left his native Venezuela to join the Dodgers in Arizona and Eric Gagne was sent to the minors because he wasn’t good enough to stick with the big leaguers.

The Dodgers had the day off Tuesday and play the Chicago White Sox later on this afternoon.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
