Dodgers borrow Fenway ritual to honor Boston

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers paid tribute to the city of Boston by playing Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" on the public-address system between the seventh and eighth innings of Tuesday night's game against the Padres.

"Sweet Caroline" sing-alongs are a tradition of Red Sox fans at Fenway Park.

The Dodgers also began games Monday and Tuesday night's with a moment of silence in honor of the people affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
