Tulo Goes Off Man and Mylee meets Hoffman

RANT REGULARS: First let me apologize for taking so long to get this entry posted. I’ve had it half done for a week now but with school starting and a super busy schedule real life takes over and sometimes you just have to get other stuff done.

                                          So without further ado I present…

8/15/10                         Rockies vs Brewers Game Threebrewers vs rockies 8-13-10.jpg

It’s been a while since my two little ones and I attended a game together. Today was an afternoon Sunday game, a bit hot but no chance of rain. We were ready for a day of family fun at Coors Field.

 Guess who was at today’s game?..Both R-LUV and LUVMYROX..It was nice to see them.R-Luv and LUVMYROX 8-15-10.jpg

This series is tied. The Rockies opted not to take batting practice on the field today so after a short wait the Brewers started taking hits.Brewers.JPG The kids and I wanted to get autographs today but with BP going on we changed our minds and stayed in the pavilion. I managed to snag two balls today.

Neither of them were caught so the first ball I gave to Mylee. The second ball was hit into the tunnel so after I snagged it I handed it to a little girl who was leaning over the railing.

As batting practice was ending I noticed Trevor Hoffman standing over in the corner of the outfield about to sign for someone so I suggested Mylee take her ball and go over there.

                 It was worth it…Here’s what she brought back. Hoffman’s a nice guy.

   Hunter worked his way down to the front and was able to get Jeff Francis’s autograph.

With the game tied in bottom of the ninth and Dexter Fowler on second base Troy Tulowitzki steps up to to the plate.

With perfect Tulowitzki timing he hits a line drive over Rickie Weeks head (good cause Rickie’s had the Rockies number the last two games), scoring Dexter Fowler and winning the game and the series.

            Here’s the video…Tulo’s Walk-Off Single

                   Props to Ubaldo for ten strikeouts in eight innings. Nice Job brotha!

       I love exiting Coors Field after a win. Tough series, perfect win on a perfect evening.

                   I’m “D” The Rockpile Ranter…Next up…Rush at Red Rocks.

Hey D,
That was great seeing you at the game! Even better getting the win! It’s weird knowing that Bradley’s no longer a member of the team. I understand the reasoning but it still seems strange. Can’t believe the season’s starting to wind down, I guess everything about this summer is winding down. Sigh, summer always goes by way to fast. Hope to catch you at another game.

Ummm… I didn’t know Ubaldo has 18 wins????? LOL You must have forgot Tulo’s game winning hit was after we blew the save and missed letting U get his 18th win that game. I told some friends that I had never been so mad to win a game.

D –
Great to see a new post. Great win for the Rockies…to bad you didn’t get to see Ubaldo get his 18th win. I’ll be at the game on Friday against the Dodgers to see Ubaldo once again try to win his 18th. Hope to see you there.

Peace out!

R-LUV-We need to hook up so I can give you your prizes. It totally feels like summer is over. We’re wearing jackets up here in Ned in the evenings. I also agree it’s strange without the Hawper.
KEN-I had tickets for Tues and Wed(tonight) and couldn’t make it. I’ve recently discovered what a sciatic nerve and how it can make your life miserable. I do have tickets for Friday so as long as I can walk I’ll be there you know that…D
DAN-Thanks for keeping me straight, I’ll blame it on the vicodin :)
