Dodgers: Watch Steph Curry Film Trayce Thompson’s RBI Double from Field Level

Dodgers outfielder Trayce Thompson, as we all know, is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson. The two are actually only about 13 months apart, so it’s no surprise that Klay has been seen around Dodger Stadium supporting his bro several times.

But Klay isn’t the only Splash Brother in town to support the less-famous Thompson brother. Two-time NBA MVP and four-time NBA champ Steph Curry was at Dodger Stadium last night to take in the game between the Dodgers and Twins.

For a while, it looked like Steph was going to be treated to a solid Dodgers win but a disappointment for him personally, as Trayce wasn’t in the starting lineup. But in the bottom of the eighth inning, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts decided to get Mookie Betts off his feet for the last couple innings of the blowout and sent Thompson up to pinch-hit.

According to Dodgers on-field reporter Kirsten Watson, Roberts was keenly aware of Steph’s presence — and the reason for it.

Through some great teamwork, Curry was notified of Thompson’s pending pinch-hitting appearance, so he was in perfect position to pull out his phone and watch his buddy rip a double to left — the seventh of eight doubles on the night for the Dodgers. Trea Turner followed up with a double of his own to drive Thompson home, and a Will Smith RBI single closed out the scoring on a great night for the Dodgers.

It might not have been such a great night for Giants fans, though.
