McCourts are in the house *

Frank and Jamie McCourt were in their respective corners of the owners' box for the first pitch at Dodger Stadium, the LAT's Bill Plaschke tweets:

One day after announcing their separation, both owners Frank and Jamie McCourt are here..two rows apart..

Frank arrived first, Jamie walked in right before first pitch, didn't acknowledge Frank at first, then went back and talked to him briefly.

A tough, sad situation, the McCourts...but no immediate effect on team...players don't care who signs checks, as long as they don't bounce.

Shane Victorino singled for the Phillies but was picked off by L.A. starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw to end the first inning.

* On the board: James Loney homered in the 2nd, off a tough left-handed pitcher, Dodgers up 1-0.

Add Plaschke: "One more observaton from owners box -- both Frank and Jamie's lawyers are down there with them, separate rows of course."

Final: 8-6 Phillies.

Antonio watch: My spies say the mayor sat in Frank's row, beside Tom Lasorda, at least while Villaraigosa stayed; Eric Garcetti also spent time in the owners' box, also in Frank's row.
