Lasorda throws Game 2 ceremonial first pitch

Dodgers' Hall of Fame skipper tosses to Mattingly

LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, who led the team to four National League pennants and two World Series titles, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers' 5-2 win over the Mets in Game 2 of the 2015 NL Division Series at Dodger Stadium on Saturday.

Over his 22 seasons as the Los Angeles skipper, Lasorda twice won NL Manager of the Year honors and managed the Dodgers to championships in 1981 and '88, with the latter postseason run including a seven-game win over the favored Mets in the NL Championship Series.
