Up to this point, when a Dodgers player hits a homer, a machine that spits out bubbles is turned on in the dugout. Yasiel Puig received the bubble treatment earlier this season, as you might remember. Clayton Kershaw even bent the rules a bit, getting the bubble machine after his no-hitter.
When Juan Uribe homered in the second inning Tuesday, the scoreboard at Dodger Stadium flashed the words "Bubble Machine." But no bubbles were dispensed in the dugout, much to the Dodgers' disappointment.
Then, when Matt Kemp belted a home run Wednesday, the bubble machine again was seen in the dugout. The Dodgers had it up and running, letting bubbles flow through the air, according to Shaikin.
