Diamondbacks Vs. Rockies
Game 3 against the d’backs in this series.
Today they finally had batting practice before the game. I got the 1st ball of BP off Ty Wiggington that bounced of the grass and I grabbed. The Ball was one of the most intresting I had ever cayght it had the name stamp from the bat on it from Jose Lopez. Thought that was realy cool.

Jason Giambi would then come in to pinch hit in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs he would also flyout to young to end the game. The Rockies would lose 2-1 and Drop to 3rd place in the NL West. After starting the season strong the Rockies have realy been struggling in the months of may realy having trouble with the bats, But the starting pitching has been realy been keeping them in games. Hopefully the hits will start rolling in and the pitching will only get better. The Rockies will be facing the Diamondbacks for the 4th and final game of this series tonight at Coors.
Well see You there!
