Giants stand tall as the Rockies fall

                                           GIANTS VS ROCKIES GAME 1

IMG_2017.JPGToday game was the official debut of the “New Ranter Hat”If you follow this blog you know that the Rockies gave away 15,000 floppy hats similar to mine a few weeks back.

                                      No worries it was time to change things up a little bit.

My friend Pete and I arrived at the Rockpile gate and were one of the first few through the gates.

We were to meet Scott and Stuart inside after batting practice. The Rockies decided not to take advantage of the beautiful weather and let the Giants take over the field.

In hindsight, they Rockies probably should have taken the opportunity and “Been on the Green”.

Today I ran into Kylie the infamous “Blake Street Blogger. I knew she would be attending this game and it wasn’t hard to spot her right up front in the Pavilion.


IMG_1901.JPG          It was obvious that she was excited to be at Coors Field because she was beaming.

I knew Joy (aka LUVMYROX) would be at this game too. I spotted her to my left taking pictures.

Joys pic of me 2.jpg                  Here’s a shot of Pete in the outfield. This was Pete’s first batting practice.

IMG_1908.JPGThere were a decent amount of BP homers hit into the pavilion today. One of the Giants peppered the pavilion with 5 or 6 homers in one at bat.

I managed to snag one ball today. It hit the bleachers in between a group of people and rolled down three rows right to me.

                                            It was a perfect baseball and it was Kylie’s.

I ran into Geoff, he had the good seats today and he was showing off his snag of the day.

      A Shea Stadium ball. You never know what’s going to land in your glove in BP,…. I like that.

IMG_2012.JPGHere’s a shot of my friend Stuart standing in the Rockpile. I was on the concourse behind first base.IMG_2022.JPG

                        
            Here’s Stuart and Pete enjoying a view and a beverage.

 
IMG_2101.JPG                          This guy asked if he could take our picture. I said sure if I could take his.

IMG_2024.JPG                  Aaron Cook on the mound. Not one of Cookies best performances tonight.IMG_2025.JPG

                              By the end of the first inning Cook had given up three runs.

Cook’s shoulder started to hurt and Tracy pulled him after walking Nate Schierholtz to open the fourth.

IMG_2111.JPG                                 Giants tower over the Rockies with a final score of 6-3.

                           Props to Seth Smith for his 10th homer of the season in the 8th.

This loss hurt, I can hear my friend Todd (the guy have the Rockies/Giants season long bet with) in the distance. He is laughing at me and he sounds like Nelson from the Simpsons.

                               Rockies I can’t have that. I need a win tonight and so do you.

                               I have the best readers and I appreciate every one of you…DGreen Floppy Hat.JPG
