The pictures are courtesy of the LA Times. Raffy Furcal was the main force behind the 7-6 win over the Washington Nationals. Raffy was four for five and hit the huge homerun in the eighth inning to break the tie and ultimately win the game.
Andre Ethier made a game saving throw from right field to home plate to prevent a run from scoring which would have again tied the game. Andre is always credited with his offense but his defense has always been excellent.
Also a big contributer to yesterday’s game was Matty Kemp who hit a 3 run homerun in the first inning bringing his total RBIs during the season to 100!!
Today they travel to Pittsburgh to play the Pirates.
The magic number is “one” to make the playoffs or “four” to win the Division. They have six more games on the road and three at home. I think that the guys will win the Division on the road so we will not be part of the celebration as we were last year.
Thanks to everyone for stopping by.
