Got a tele converter figured I would try something different! The Tele doubles the lens size = Closure to the action!

Here is one of my favorites from before the game. As Wilin Rosario and Jon Garland were heading in from the bull pen.

Jon Garland throwing first pitch to Mark Ellis. He got all three batters to ground out for the first inning and the second. Things looked to be turning round for him since some really bad starts recently.

Uribe scored on a Mark Ellis single, Ellis would also score on a Adrian Gonzalez single. Ramon Hernandez ended the inning by hitting a double play.

IMG_2044

In the 8th inning Tulo would get a single on this pitch in the 8th inning with Dex on base, Dex moved to third on the hit and would score a few batters later when Wilin Rosario would hit into a double play.

Todd Helton came into pinch hit in the 9th in the pitchers spot and with this swing hit his 358th home run of his career and 4th of the season to tie the game at 5. IMG_2104

Rafael Betancourt pitched the 10th for the Rockies and it was not his best appearance. He faced 6 batters and the Dodgers scored 2 runs.

IMG_2141

Carl Crawford came into the game to pinch run for Ramon Hernandez who lead off the inning with a single. Crawford would be the Dodgers first run of the inning.

The Final score was 7-5 as the Rockies slide continues that is the 4th lose this week to a team with a bad record. They are now 28-27 this season and are 2.5 games behind the Diamondbacks in the west and in 3rd place 1 behind the Giants.

Well that is it for this rollercoaster of a game there are 2 more left in this series a Saturday day. It is also photo day which is always a good time.

See You at Coors.
