The Colorado Rockies took the first game as the Dodger bullpen came up short in the first game and today I learned why Joe Torre did not bring George Sherrill in the 10th inning of that game. Sherrill felt tightness in his right side earlier that day. MRI came out negative!
In the second game, Randy Wolf got his fourth consecutive win giving up one run in 7 1/3 inning to give the Rockies only their second loss in the last games! That was also Randy’s #99 win! Let’s hope he gets #100 in his next start!
Congratulations to Andre Ethier who hit homerun #26 and #27! Also congratulations James Loney who finally got #8!
Rubber game (I’d love to have that rubber figure) is an early one. Vicente Padilla gets his start against Jorge de La Rosa. I just learned that Vicente is from Nicaragua. He is the first Nicaraguan to start for the Dodgers!
Behave Vicente and have a good game! I wonder if I can have my headphones on while I go to my Pilates class at noon.
Quick Trivia I heard during last night’s game : Name the only three teams that have never had a player hit for the cycle?
