Kemp flies Dodgers' bat boys into Phoenix

PHOENIX -- Five bat boys and ball boys that work games at Dodger Stadium were flown in by outfielder Matt Kemp so they could be in the visitors clubhouse at Chase Field Wednesday night if the Dodgers clinched the National League West title.

The five: Gabriel Esparza-Torres, Francisco Herrera, Sergio Garcia, Javier Herrera and Eddie Gonshorowski.

Equipment manager Alex Torres said Kemp also picked up the hotel charges for the group. Torres said Brad Penny did the same thing for bat boys and ball boys in the 2004 playoffs.
