Bryan Stow, who has been in a coma since being beaten by Dodgers fans after an March 31 game at Dodger Stadium, is opening his eyes, neurosurgeon Dr. Geoff Manley said Wednesday.

Manley reported that Stow has been weaned off one of five anti-seizure medications he was on since going into a coma and that his brain had showed no seizure activity in 30 hours of continuing monitoring.

Manley says these developments are positive but he could not predict Stow’s chances for recovery.

The Dodgers earlier Wednesday added $100,000 to the reward pot for infomation leading to the capture of the men who beat Stow.

On Sunday morning, the Padres planned to take a bus from their hotel in San Francisco to AT&T Park ahead of their afternoon game. The bus never showed. MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell reports that team director of player and staff services TJ Lasita flagged down an empty San Francisco tour bus, negotiated a rate, and got his players an impromptu ride to the ballpark.

The Padres’ Twitter account and Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune tweeted pictures and video:

The Padres and Giants are playing the rubber match of their three-game series this afternoon. The Padres will then travel to Arlington for a series with the Rangers. The Giants will welcome the Rockies.
