Dodgers pulled off another W against the Chicago Cubs tonight as Bills threw a solid 7 innings, earning 4 runs off of 4 hits (that totally contradicts what the fact that I said solid haha) walking 4 and striking out 9. He got the with the help of outstanding offensive support led by Ethier. Andre went 3-for-5 with 2 RBI’s. Loney was 2-for-3 with another RBI. RBI’s all round for Kemp, Blake, & even Martin! George Sherrill came in with one pitch and gave up a double and earned a run to bump up his already generous ERA to 7.32. Can we get rid of this guy already? (It sucks that he no longer has any options, so Torre is stuck with him). Miller pitched the 8th & top of the 9th, but Broxton was called in to close out the game, but gave up another 2 runs on top of Sherrill’s. He was finally able to get a 4-3 ground out. Another shaky save, but a save nonetheless. Two more games before the All-Star Break.
And what an ASG it will be! I was so excited when a friend of mine (who shall remain nameless due to the fact that he is a fan of the Yankees!) invited me to go to the FanFest today. Couldn’t say no. It was both our first time attending. Saw lots of cool memorabilia and clinics, little kids playing games and umpiring! All around, it’s a like heaven for a baseball nut. If you don’t have anything to do this weekend, make sure to stop by. The tickets are only $10. It’s an experience. Lots of cool giveaways and whatnot. Below are some pictures. Thanks again for thinking to invite me 🙂
