The Dodgers have swept the St Louis Cardinals. I am celebrating by being here at work. Oh well. They won the game today 5-1.
My Dad told me that whoever won the second game of the series would be the winner. I always believe my Dad. He was right. He kept telling me that St Louis probably expected to play more than one game at Busch Stadium. I still feel sad for Matt Holliday but I know he will get over it.
I will post again tomorrow afternoon when I have access to some of the pictures I took from the first two games of the series.
The next game will be at Dodgers Stadium on Thursday when they meet either the Phillies or the Rockies. All of us loyal fans will be there to greet our Dodgers.
I would probably make the co-heroes of today: Andre Ethier with his 2 run homerun and Vicente Padilla with his stellar pitching!
Also a hat tip to Manny Ramirez who is in playoff mode, hitting two doubles and a single with two RBI’s.
Kudos to the whole team who take turns being the heroes. There is not one player that the whole team depends on. They work as a unit.
The Cardinals proved to be a class act as well. Some comments made by Lugo: “They had the best record in the National League and you can’t wonder why. It shows. they have a great team.” Miller: “They beat us pretty soundly. They have no weaknesses that I see. They have a quality lineup. There’s not one guy in there that you can pitch around because they can all do damage.”
Thanks for stopping by. Much more tomorrow.
