I have been so busy lately that I have not updated my blog. I still need to upload the pictures from the Baseball Reliquary Induction Day. What an AWESOME day that was but first let’s get back to the Dodgers!
WOW!! They have won six in a row sweeping the Nationals and the Toronto Blue Jays! They scored 47 runs in those six games while giving up 22 runs.
The Dodgers were 9.5 games back June 22 and in 1st place July 22. Sixth team since 1969 to go from 9.5 back to 1st in 30 days.
They have gone from being in last place on June 22nd to first place by 1.5 games!
In the tradition of Walter O’Malley, Ice Cream for everyone!
The Dodgers arrived at LAX today about 3:45 a.m. Both Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez were tweeing when they landed at LAX. Why do they schedule night games like that on Getaway day when the team has a game the following day?
Tonight the Dodgers (53-47) start the homestand with the Cincinnati Reds (58-44)
Tonight is also Vin Scully bobblehead night! Naturally, the game is sold out.
Since is Throwback Thursday, the Dodgers posted this picture of a young Vin Scully.
Here how the bobblehead for tonight looks like:
I can’t wait to be back at OLOCR, Our Lady of Chavez Ravine!
The Boys are back in town! The Boys are back in town!!!!
The matchup: Latos 9-3 3.53 ERA against Greinke 8-2 3.36 ERA.
The Dodgers Sweep the Giants! The Dodgers Sweep the Giants!
El Maestro Jaime Jarrin mentioned yesterday that the last time the Dodgers swept the Giants was in 2009! April 13, 15, 16. Hmm no game on April 14?
The winning pitchers then were Billingsley 4/13, Broxton on 4/15 and Stults on 4/16.
This homestand the winning pitchers: 6/24, Paco Rodriguez! Anyone remembers this “Nobody says no to Paco” in the movie definitely Maybe? Stephen Fife won the game 6/25 and last night the Golden Boy Clayton Kershaw won his 6th game. It was a long time waiting for #6 but Kershaw finally won to complete the sweep and continue the winning streak at 5.
Now the Phillies are in town for a four game series. It is going to be crazy at Dodger Stadium today with Sandy Koufax bobblehead giveaway.
So off to the stadium I go! for game #43! I have not missed a game this year.
On the mound tonight: Zack Greinke against Pettibone. Let’s Go Dodgers! Let’s Go!
Tomorrow June 28, is my birthday! so an early birthday present for tonight is a W
Oh is so much fun being at Dodger Stadium with Yasiel Puig there. I know we have to be cautious but the last two days have been fun fun fun with Cuban missile Yasiel Puig.
Monday 6/3/13 – I was so looking forward to his debut. He got two hits in the first game and in the 9th inning he used his powerful and accurate right arm to complete a game-ending double play, catching the San Diego Padres off guard in a 2-1 victory at Dodger Stadium. He sent us fans happy.
and the throw
Tuesday 6/4/13- What did he do for an uncore for this second start? He hit not one but TWO homeruns! Here is Yasiel Puig showing off his two homerun balls.
We want to see more of these balls and this
How sweet to see Quentin making the last out! We dd not want to leave the stadium after the game so we hang around watching the highlights on the big screens THEN we exited the stadium. Fun fun times at Dodger Stadium. Let the party continue! Clayton Kershaw on the mound tonight!
Good to see Randy of Let’s Talk Dodgers last night. We saw a heck of a game!

Ross Porter will be at Dodger Stadium this weekend! I read it on Tom Hoffard column here: http://www.dailybulletin.com/ci_23359256/tom-hoffarth-media-ross-porter-returns-dodger-stadium
From the article:
The 74-year-old has stayed busy on various broadcasting projects and finds himself returning to the stadium today as an employee of Fox Sports West. Executive producer Tom Feuer hired him to call today’s CIF Southern Section Division III title game between Mira Costa and Serra (2 p.m.) as well as the Division II championship between Cypress and Temecula Valley (5 p.m.), both of which will stream on the FoxSportsWest.com Prep Zone online platform
I would love it if he would return working for the Dodgers.
In the meantime, the Dodgers are in Colorado after dropping the two games at Anaheim Stadium. I made the trip to Anaheim for the two games. I drove for the first game and took the Metrolink special train the second night. I do recommend taking the train. It is $7 round trip. The train back from the stadium leaves 30 minutes after the last out.
Tonight is El Niño de Oro Clayton Kershaw against Garland. Game at 5:40 p.m. Pacific Time.
The WordPress photo Challenge for this week that ends today is Escape. For more information on this week’s photo challenge go here http://dailypost.wordpress.com/category/photo-challenges/
If you know me, you know that my home away from home is Dodger Stadium so for me the word Escape brings to mind being at Dodger Stadium. Nothing makes me happier than to head to my Blue Heaven on Earth, Dodger Stadium or as I like to call it OLOCR, Our Lady of Chavez Ravine so here are some pictures that means my Escape to a happy place
From Opening Day
I like sitting in my seats, watch game, listen with my headphones and keep score.
My view as I exit the stadium
This week’s Photo Challenge is Pattern http://dailypost.wordpress.com/category/photo-challenges/ I was looking around Dodger Stadium to see what I could use for the subject “Pattern” Reviewing the Dodger photographer’s photos I came upon what I could use so before the game I took some pictures with my Iphone.
By the clubhouse entrance there are many Dodger yearbooks and Dodger programs framed forming a nice pattern. I could have taken just one picture of the whole thing but it would have been too small so I took seeveral.
Here is the collection:
I wish I had some of those programs
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is “From Above” http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/weekly-photo-challenge-from-above/#comments A picture taken from above.
With the theme in mind I reviewed some of my pictures. I found this one that I took from above, the last row of the Top Deck (the last level) of Dodger Stadium.
From above to below the field, Matt Kemp at the plate on a Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. Note the shadows, the location of the ball as it makes a hole on his shadow, the umpire in position and the catcher ready to catch the ball.
That game was Sunday, September 9, 2012. Dodgers lost the game against the Cardinals in 12 inning with the score of 5-2. Kemp went 1 for 5 with a groundball in the first inning, a strikeout in the 3rd, a double in the 6th, a strikeout in the 8th and in the 10th inning with the bases full and two outs, Kemp flied out out to center field.
Here is a recent panoramic picture I took from my seats in the Top Deck
It is a long way down but I like the view from above. I see the game, I see the mountains, I get a panoramic view of the game.
Today Tuesday, May 7, 2013, the Dodgers find themselves way below in last place in their division. They need to crawl out and rise above.
It all went down hill for the Dodgers after the Home Opener. They lost 2 out of three to the hated Giants. Here are a few sudokus I came up with after the loss.
walks seven Dodgers in five
just two unearned runs :-(
One for 14 Ugh!
worst: two for 27
in series with RISP :-(
Bases loaded Yes!
3-4-5 hitters no outs
scored only one run :-(
Seven double plays
by the Giants, Did Blue win?
no, Tim was lucky
Dodgers lose again
Only win game with Kershaw
of three game series
Leaving stadium late
Listening to Dodger Talk
on the long drive home
Today is day off
Dodgers reflect on mistakes
be sharp for weekend!
Yasiel Puig will make debut
Lookouts for the kid

What an Opening Day at Dodger Stadium! All Opening Days are special. We await them with so much anticipation. What an Opening act with Sandy Koufax throwing out the first pitch and Orel Hershiser catching him.
Magic walks to the mound to throw out the first pitch
But wait! Here comes Mattingly to lift Magic for Sandy Koufax
A beautiful view of Sandy on the mound
Orel Hershiser said on Twitter: “What a day! To have Sandy throw the first pitch. To catch it and Thank him for all he taught me, was a moment I will never forget”
Sandy into his windup, here is the pitch….
Got to say Vin Scully still enjoys baseball.
Standing room only
El nino de oro after rounding the bases
El nino de Oro taking a curtain call after his Major League Home run in the 8th to take the lead 1-0. Kershaw hit the first pitch of reliever George Kontos.
Final score Dodgers 4, Giants 0. Kerhsaw with a complete game.
We went into Dodger Stadium with big smiles. We came out still smiling after that incredible Opening game. I did not even mind the long wait for the shuttle after the game.
Icing on the cake: I have Clayton Kershaw in my Baseball Fantasy team :-) Los Locos Azules play in the TwitterMaffiaLeague.
