Saturday nights game

Tonight was the second night in a row that I did not bring my camera because of the chance of rain. It was also the second game in a row that they lost. Bummer!

The good news is that the Dodgers have called up Clayton Kershaw and he will start tomorrow in Chad's place. Avery Rose and I are so happy we get to see his MLB debut!!

Rain Delay at Dodger Stadium

The tarp!

Avery Rose and Madyson on the field.

The girls on the field with the fireworks in the background.

Although is doesn't happen very often tonight was the second rain delay at Dodger Stadium this season.

I was supposed to take Aedan, Brody, and Cody but since Aedan got sick I brought Kirsten, Avery Rose, and Madyson. We knew that rain was in the forecast and we came prepared. Tights under our jeans, tank tops, long sleeves, short sleeves, sweatshirts and jackets. Gloves, hats, and blankets.

We arrived really early to catch batting practice.

It sprinkled/rained on and off throughout game but in the bottom of the ninth, right after I brought some of my friends to our seats, the skies opened up!! We didn't leave our seats until the Ump called for the tarp to be put on. Avery Rose was SO excited to get to see that! The funny thing was at some point the rain stopped so they took the tarp off but not 2 minutes later it started raining again and they had to put the tarp back on. The rain delay landed up being about 65 minutes. At 11:00 p.m. Avery Rose ate her second Dodger Dog of the night. They startd the game back up around 11:30 p.m. We did lose but it was an exciting game to watch.

The finale was the awesome firework show that we got to watch from the field. Avery Rose was so excited to be standing where all of the action happens. She couldn't stop looking around soaking everything in. She tells me "I'm so glad I am here!" How cute is she??? The firework show ended after midnight. It was a long game but Avery Rose and Madyson did great and were so happy to be there.

Tuesday nights game

OK, so I was there and we won but I did not bring my camera. It was a great game from the beginning. Chad was awesome!! The great news was that Arizona lost their game, so now we are only 4 games back!!
I won't be at the game tonight but I will be there Friday and Saturday. GO DODGERS!!!

"I LOVE LA" Monday nights game

Penny, Martin, and Honeycutt.
I love the guy in the bottom right corner holding the gnome.

Matt Kemp

Brad Penny

Blake DeWitt


Luis Maza and Rafael Furcal.

Jeff Kent and Blake DeWitt

Blake up to bat earlier in the game.

Bottom of the ninth, score tied, bases loaded, one out, then Blake comes up to bat!!!

Almost hit by a pitch.

BASE HIT!! Blake wins the game!!!

Blake gets pounded!!

Woo Hoo!!!

A happy team!!

Blake waving to his fans!

I love when I get to hear that song after a Dodger game!! I also love to be at a great game!!
It is even cooler to come from behind and witness a walk-off!! To see Blake tie the game then go on to hit a walk-off base hit was a dream!! Yeah, I missed his first MLB homerun AND his inside the park homerun but I was there last night!! Plus, this broke my losing streak too!!
Maybe I'm not a jinx after all.

Why on earth did Torre leave Broxton in as long as he did today?? They probably would have been better off if they would have put Nomar in to pitch. Seriously???? I do not get that at all!! The good news is they lost and I wasn't even at the game!
Maybe I need to go out of town again.
The good thing is that Blake raised his BA to .323 by going 3 for 4 today. Have I mentioned lately that HE ROCKS?? Well, he does.
Andre was amazing today also. I am sure he was thinking, "keep me on the bench for a few games, I'll show you!!" Good for you Andre, you rock too!!

Saturday Night......

Yep, the third game in a row I go to and we lose again!! This time we didn't even score one run. The only good thing was that we were with good friends and yummy food!

UH OH!!!

Yes, I was at the game again last night. We lost 7 - 1. Surprise!!!!
Blake had a good night though going 2 for 4 along with Loney.
Andruw even had a double!!
So, in case you all are wondering, yes I am going to the game tonight.

I'm thinking I may be a jinx!

OK, so I go to Europe, the Dodgers have their best run of the season. The day we fly home (Sunday) they break their winning streak. Yeah, they won Monday and Tuesday, games I DIDN'T go to, then I show up there today and they lose 12 - 1. UGH!!! Even with the loss it was still a fun day at the ball park. Perfect weather, and fun with friends.
Let's hope they win Friday and Saturday when I am at those games. Maybe I will go incognito!


WOW!!! Inside the park homerun!!! That was amazing!! Ugh, if only I was there in person!! Oh well.
My family is my witness that I have been rooting for Blake since February!!
How exciting!!!
Congratulations AGAIN!!

YEAH BLAKE!!!!!!!!

I am finally home from Europe and it seems that I missed quite a bit!! However, I am very happy that I made it home in time to see Blake get his first MLB homerun, even thought I REALLY wanted to be there to see it in person I am very happy for him. To think if he would have hit it Wednesday I would have been there to witness it but oh well I can't be at all of the games.
The whole team is doing great except for Andruw. What is up with him??? I knew would should have signed Torii Hunter!!!
I am hoping we can sweep the Mets and Arizona loses a few more!!
Congrats to Blake!! I am sure there will be many more to come!!
