All seemed calm after Dodgers' loss to the Giants
The Times' Baxter Holmes checked out the Dodger Stadium parking lots for signs of friction between Dodgers and Giants fans after the Dodgers' 8-5 loss to the Giants on Wednesday night. The Giants are visiting Los Angeles for the first time since Giants fan Bryan Stow was brutally beaten in a parking lot after the season opener March 31.
Here's Holmes' report:
Beneath a nearly full moon on a chilly Wednesday night, dozens of black-and-white Los Angeles Police Department cruisers weaved through the Dodger Stadium parking lot with their red-and-blue lights blazing following the Giants' 8-5 win over the Dodgers.
But they were met by a sparse gathering because most of the announced crowd of 30,421 had left earlier. The lots were mostly empty nearly 30 minutes after the game had ended. The cops stayed to keep the peace, but it was already well in place.
