Dodgers @ Rockies
What a game. It was a nice cloudy afternoon but I didn’t have time to make it for BP so when I walked in a entered through the Home plate gate and headed down to the Dodger’s dugout with the hope of snagging Adrian Gonzalez, Matt Kemp, Andre Either, or Don Mattingly on a ball. Well no cigar! They did sign for a few kids but not for a girl in a Rockies shirt… does that surprise me… NO!
Well I did see that Clayton Kershaw was signing on the other side of the dugout and so I ran over and stood there and scored him on a ball. He doesn’t sign sweet spot and he doesn’t sign in a spot that the ball would be of good value, which is understandable but also annoying.
After getting Kershaw, Rox Addict, EB and I headed over to the wall to hang until the player came out. At first I realized that I really didn’t have anything for anyone. So I helped some friend out. Over on the wall we ran into Jersey Geoff and Rockpile Ranter who were trying to get some stuff signed as well. Players who signed were Andrew Brown, Josh Rutledge, Jordan Pacheco, Tyler Colvin, and Charlie Blackmon.
Ranter had a spring training hat of Charlie Blackmon’s and so I told him that I would be able to get it done. So once he was warming up I yelled “Chuck Nazty… (He turned around) this is your Spring Training hat, can you sign it… (got a nod)! Once he was done warming up he was more than willing to sign for us!
Once he signed it was time to head to the seats and let the game begin! Tyler Chatwood was pitching for the Rockies and he pitched VERY well! First inning was a quick one which was nice because in the bottom of the first the Rockies got straight to work and scored 4. During the Rockies at bat Matt Kemp was going for a ball and slammed so hard into the wall it was amazing that it was that loud from where we were. He missed the ball and Rutledge ended up getting a triple, but Kemp was out and down for the count. I didn’t get good pictures but PLEASE take a minute to look at Rox Addicts Blog because he has a great sequence of photos from before, during, and after impact! Http://roxaddit.mlblogs.com
Once he got up we resumed play with one out and Rutledge on third JP came up and hit a blop single to center field that Kemp dove for but missed and the Rockies were on the board. Rosario hit an RBI single, along with a RBI single by Brown, and a RBI single by LaMahieu.
In the second A.J. Ellis did hit a Sac fly to score the dodgers first run. Bottom of 2 was 1-2-3 for the Rockies along with a 1-2-3 inning for Chatwood in the 3rd.
At the top of the third JP was robbed of a homerun buy Juan Rivera but Da Baby Bull on the next pitch hit it out and once that thing left the bat you knew it was GONE! This was Rosario’s 22nd homerun of the season which now leads the team!
The Dodgers scored 1 in the 4th but the Rockies countered in the bottom of the 4th with a single by Tyler Colvin. 5th and 6th innings were silent on both sides with no runs being scored until the bottom of the 7th when Rosario had another RBI single. Chris Nelson also got an RBI single in that inning! Rockies 8-2!
In the 8th and 9th the Dodgers scored 1 off of our Bullpen but Betancourt finally closed the game and the Rockies won!
This was a very well played game and everyone keeps asking what happened to this team and I say that they have heart and that our future team looks very bright!!!
On the way in from the Bullpen we did get Adam Ottavino on two cards and Rox addict got him to sign a picture!
We were tipped off that the players were coming out of the home plate gate and so we headed out and waited to see who made an appearance. We ended up snagging Clayton Kershaw AGAIN this time on an All-star ball with my name inscribed on it, but the coolest autograph was from Matt Treanor and his wife a three time Olympic gold medalists Misty May Treanor and the best part was that they were on the same ball! IT WAS AWESOME!
We saw some other players and I chatted with Nelly about his Fan Cave experience which was very cool, when we didn’t run and talked to me about it I decided that Chris is a nice guy and that I have a new found respect for him!
