During a lull between groups of player I took this Michael Cuddyer inspired photo.
A view from center field from a very low angle on the center field warning track.
It was than time for the game. So we left the field and headed to the seats. We did see if anyone would sign today and I did not get any autographs. I not sure if anyone did sign.
Jhoulys Chacin was the starting pitcher for the Rockies.
Chacin got Mark Ellis grounded to Todd Helton at first.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a single to get on base but was doubled up on a Andre Either hit to Tulo who tagged 2nd and threw over to first for the double play.
Zack Greinke was the starting pitcher for the Dodgers. He sat the Rockies down in order in the first.
Chacin had a very good second inning only facing 3 batters his self.
Michael Cuddyer started off the 2nd with a single and was moved over to 3rd on a Todd Helton single.
Michael Cuddyer did score on a Nolan Arrenado double. Yorvit Torrealba walked and Jhoulys took a swing to hit into a double play.
Getting Yorvit out at second…
… and himself out at first to end the inning.
The Dodgers picked up 3 runs in the 3rd inning. Tim Fedorowicz lead the inning with a home run (first of his career). Zach Greinke hit a single followed up by a Carl Crawford double he was removed from the game with a hamstring pull. Scott Van Slyke replaced him as a pinch runner and stayed in the game in left. The other 2 runs were score by Greinke on a Adrian Gonzalez sac fly. and Van Slyke on a Jerry Hairston single and Mark Ellis was out at first. (3-1) Dodgers
After both Dexter and D.J. LeMahieu both struck out Carlos Gonzalez hit a triple and was left on base.
There was no scoring till the 5th when Cargo hit a home run that was caught by Dan. The Rockies scored 3 runs in the inning 2 were on the Cargo home run the first was Torrealba on a Dex single. (4-3) Rox
The Dodgers picked up 2 runs in the 6th inning. The runs were scored on a very good small ball inning with singles by Schumaker and Punto. They scored on a Tim Federowicz double ( also his first of career). After a ball was hit back to Zach Greinke that was off the dirt it was close and looked like it was caught. (5-4) Dodgers. Don Mattingly came out and argued the call and than was thrown out by first base umpire Brian Night. He was arguing with the home plate umpire when this happened, he than went on and yelled at Night for a few more minutes.
The Dodgers went on and scored 1 run in the 7th (6-4) Dodgers
Michael Cuddyer hit a 2 run home run in the bottom of the 7th to tie the game at 6.
Cuddy high-fiving the Bat boy.
Jay Howell the 4th Dodger pitcher of the game on the mound in the 8th inning. Greinke pitched 5 and 1/3 innings allowing 9 hits and 4 runs.
Jhoulys Chacin would pitch 6 innings, he allowed 9 hits and 5 runs. He was replaced by Josh Outman in the 7th.
Todd Helton striking out in the 10th.
Howell being taken out of the game in the 10th inning by dodgers bench coach Trey Hilman who took over the team in the 6th when Mattingly was ejected.
Yorvit Torrealba hitting his 10th inning single.
Wilin Rosario legging out this single hit to Nick Punto at short in the 10th inning. He hit in the pitchers spot.
Dex swinging at the first pitch of the at bat, to left for a single scoring Yorvit.
Another walk of hit for Dexter Fowler.
Yorvit crosses home after the Dex hit for the Rockies 7-6 win over the Dodgers to tie this series at 1 game a piece.
Everyone piling on to Dex who is somewhere in the pile of people at first. Not sure what Matt Belise was doing but it looked like he was punching someone after he got the win with this run!
So after a few lead changes the Rockies came out on top taking this one from the Dodgers.
That is it for this one there is one more from this series against the Dodgers with a special Appearance by The Big Cat!
See You at Coors.
