Everyone who reads my blog knows that I couldn’t believe the victory on Thursday night. I was sure we would lose but the Dodgers won with Andre’s walk off homerun.
Last night I thought we would win but Broxton blew the save and the Dodgers lost in 12 innings. I wasn’t upset. I wasn’t sad. I was just tired. I got home after 11pm last night.
The evening started out with batting practice as usual. The Braves were out in the field. I recognized a familiar face: Derek Lowe, a former Dodger who was given a contract by the Braves. I thought about how funny he looked in another uniform. He went over to the stands and talked to Roni and Rosa, two fans who had a nice relationship with him. Later on he caught a bp ball and looked over to the stands. He saw me and tossed the ball in my direction. He recognized me.. As most people know, I was hit by a ball and am a bit scared of the ball now. An Angels fan caught it for me and handed it to me. Thank you Angels fan and thank you D Lowe. Our pitching certainly could use you.
