BEAT L.A.! BEAT L.A.! BEAT L.A.!

My Arizona Diamondbacks had lost two in a row to the Los Angeles Dodgers so it was my duty to go down to Phoenix and take charge for the final game in the series.  Amid chants of Beat L.A.! echoing through the stands, the D-Backs took an early 2-0 lead on a home run into the swimming pool off the bat of Kelly Johnson.  But the Dodgers fought back and eventually had a 3-2 lead late in the game.  But the home team came through as Cody Ransom crushed another two-run home run late in the game and the Diamondbacks bullpen shut down the Dodgers over the last two innings.

Here's a shot of my buddy and host, Steve Torbeck, and I at the game.


The one bad thing about today?  107 degrees in Phoenix.  Thanks Diamondbacks for a domed stadium.

  1. Congrats to your D-backs. My daughters are at a Texas Ranger game right now. It's 100 at 9:25, and Ranger's ball park is NOT domed. :(

  2. It was a cool 70 and the game was on a flat screen here-no traffic jam in a parking lot either.

  5. My Reds & Braves are middling - for no good reason that I can tell. They should be doing MUCH better. Don't suppose you want to travel to Atlanta or Cincinnati to work your magic there?
