50 50 & Grandpa Elliot
The Dodgers became the first team to win 50 games yesterday at the Ravine when they defeated the Rockies 1-0. The Rockies had a no-hitter going into the 5th inning. The only run came in the 8th inning. Awesome pitching for both teams.
The game was also the 50-game suspention for Manny so after a day off today, Manny will play in San Diego. The way our hitting has been lately, we really need him. I don’t expect him to just show up and be like a hitting machine but I expect the team to get better with him around and his hitting will improve as he plays more.
It was a beautiful day at the Ravine for the 12:10 game time Thursday. Way to start July wtih a win! Because of the early start, it was also Camp day so buses after buses of kids made it to the stadium as well as numerous families with their kids. I took my 10 & 5 year nieces. they were wearing their Dodger Jerseys with pink tank tops underneath. We were waiting outside for the gates to open so we were there two hours before game time and we stayed until the end. In the 5th inning, we were put on the big screen and they along with their auntie started jumping up and down. We had a grand time.
Today it was back to work, but tomorrow my friend Lorena and I are heading to Petco Park in San Diego! Manny served his time so we are ready to move on and support him because he wears the Dodger uniform. I expect the opposition to give him a hard time. We cannot stay Saturday but we will be back on Sunday. Let’s go Dodgers, Let’s go!! We are ready to take the “Beat L.A.” chant in San Diego.
Tuesday night, Grandpa Elliot sang the best rendition of “God Bless America” that I have heard at Dodger Stadium. let’s see if the link works
