A powerful 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit Southern California on Friday night, one day after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake shook the area. The earthquake was felt all the way in Las Vegas, where NBA Summer League games were taking place, and the games were postponed (it was a particularly scary scene at the Thomas & Mack Center, with a scoreboard and speakers shaking above the court).

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres also had a game at Dodger Stadium, and played through the earthquake anyway. That seems hard to believe when you see how much the cameras were shaking on the television broadcasts.

Here’s how it looked on the Fox Sports San Diego broadcast, with Don Orsillo on the call:

On the SportsNet LA Dodgers broadcast, play-by-play man Joe Davis and color commentator Orel Hershiser couldn’t believe that the game continued through the earthquake, and that the players didn’t seem to even feel it.

Joe Davis: “How are they continuing to play baseball?”

Orel Hershiser: “I don’t understand how the players can’t feel it.”

The Padres are happy the game continued on, at least. They came away with a 3-2 victory to snap a five-game losing streak.
