In a matchup that had all eyes fixed on Dodger Stadium, Friday night proved to be a bittersweet experience for Los Angeles Dodgers' fans. While the Dodgers found themselves at the receiving end of a defeat against their arch-rivals, the Giants, they struggled to gain an edge over Giants' starting pitcher, Sean Manaea, who kept them at bay for a riveting seven innings.

However, hope flickered in the 8th inning. With two outs and the chance to turn the tide, the Dodgers' Will Smith stepped up to the plate. But much to the disappointment of fans, Smith's ongoing form-related issues persisted.

His attempt only resulted in a feeble ground out to first base. For a deeper dive into Smith's challenges this season, enthusiasts are advised to stay tuned to InsideTheDodgers.com, which promises a comprehensive analysis later today.

Mariachi Joe's Night

Yet, it wasn't all gloom and doom at the stadium. The highlight of the evening, and what seemed to be on everyone's lips, was the much-anticipated bobblehead night, dedicated to the Dodgers' folk hero - Joe Kelly.

The bobblehead wasn't just any collectible; it represented Kelly's much-talked-about alter ego, "Mariachi Joe." This event had fans in a frenzy, with many dishing out significant sums just to lay their hands on this prized memorabilia.

Adding to the excitement was the unveiling of a new mural at the stadium, capturing Kelly in his iconic pose from the White House visit. The festivities didn't end there. In a heartwarming gesture, Joe Kelly's young son, Knox Kelly, was given the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.

While the young Kelly's fastball didn't quite find its mark, going wide of the catcher at home plate, it certainly added to the joyous spirit of the evening, making it a night to remember despite the on-field result.
