When you look back on yesterday’s game, you see all the good. Randy Wolf pitched a pretty good game. Andre Ethier hit homerun number 22 in the top of the sixth making the score 3-2 in the Dodger’s favor.
But somehow the Dodgers lost. The stars were not aligned. Orlando Hudson got doubled up on second base when Juan Pierre lined out. That was an out that shouldn’t have happened. Russell Martin’s throwing caused an error during a crucial time and also missed a throw to home which should have been caught to thwart Adam LaRoche from scoring.
There also were the usual bad calls by umpires. An obviously fair ball hit by Andre Ethier which hit in the middle of the first base line was called foul by the umpire. He admitted it later on and apologized to Andre. So that hit should have been a double. Another game changing bad call. Andre almost was ejected for protesting that call. Well, duh.
It’s been a very tough road trip for my guys. Only one more day until they return home. I can’t wait. I know I will congratulate them for all the good things that have happened. Despite all the losses, the Dodgers remain the team with the best record in all of baseball. I have to remind them of that because I know they will feel a little down. It is up to all of us Dodger fans to let them know we support them all the way no matter what. I love my Dodgers. GO DODGERS!!! And I am now on Night SIX of my seven night stretch at work. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. ONE MORE NIGHT TO GO and then I will be sitting at Dodger Stadium doing what I love best: watching Dodger baseball.

Everyone have a great Sunday. Love all of you.
