The Angels kick Royal butt. Tempe Diablo Stadium, Day 8

3-22-2012

Kansas City Royals Vs. Anaheim Angels

Tempe Diablo Stadium

Tempe, Arizona

 

This was the first game of two for the day!

When we arrived at the stadium we watched a bit of batting practice which was across the parking lot from the stadium. Only one ball was hit out in about the 10 minutes or so we were out there.

I attended this game with “D” Rockpile Ranter and Jim from Nederland.

After entering the stadium I headed down to the Royals side of the field down the 3rd base-line.

After a little while out there I headed over to the Angels side of the field.

Jered Weaver throws first pitch to the Royals first batter. This Game will be a little different since I lost my score sheet between stadiums that day so I don’t have much info to help.

I believe  this is Aybar caught stealling  caught stealing 3rd.

Later in the game behind HP a very cool usher at Tempe Diablo let us sit in seats back there. We sat there for about a inning before the game ended.

The Angels Won this game 7-4.

Iannetta went 1 for 2 with a double and 2RBI’s nice to see him settle in with the new team.
