Dodgers, Padres play through huge natural disaster in Los Angeles

When a 7.1 magnitude natural disaster struck near Ridgecrest Friday night, it was felt almost 150 miles away at Dodger Stadium. That isn't a metaphor or simile or anything of the sort - it's a description of what happened. It happened at 8:20 p.m. pacific time, and based on that magnitude, it was largest quake in Southern California in 20 years.

The shaking was felt more than 250 miles away in Las Vegas, where an NBA Summer League game ended up being postponed.

If it weren't for the camera, you never would've known, right? Eric Lauer even managed to throw a strike despite the disturbance.

This was the second quake to strike the area in two days, which is...slightly disturbing.

Following the 6.4 natural disaster on July 4th - which was, at that point, deemed the largest quake in two decades - the sports world felt what was happening Friday.
