The Los Angeles Dodgers get a hopeful season started

Here at Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Dodgers opened their first season game against the Arizona Diamondbacks with an 8-2 win. So far, a total 9 games have been played in the 2023 season with the Dodgers only winning 5 of those. The Dodgers are currently in a three way tie for first place with the D-backs and the San Diego Padres, all with 5 wins and 4 losses. 

The Dodgers first game back since the 2022 season might have been new for some fans due to some changes in the team and lineup. However, there are some familiar faces like Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Will Smith, Max Muncy and some more. 

Dodgers started off the season with a three game series against the D-backs with only winning 1 of 3. After that, the team went on to play a two game series against the Colorado Rockies resulting in a two game sweep, beating the Rockies. 

The Dodgers are soon to play their rivals, the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park. Both teams have a history of memorable games with the Dodgers knocking the Giants out of the playoffs in game 5 of the NLDS back in 2021.
