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.

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

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.
