Okay, so the Astros battled back to take Game 2 of the Series. If you're a Dodger fan, you may be kicking yourself, or cursing the team.
Last night's game was one for the ages. First you had Vin Scully coming out to throw the ceremonial first pitch! I don't know about you, but I REALLY wanted to see Vin throw some serious heat! And it was great to see Steve Yeager, and of course Fernando Valenzuela!
And yeah, it looked like the Dodgers had it in the bag. But that's one of the things I love about Baseball - unless you're ahead by 20 points, it's never in the bag. The only way you're going to be ahead by 20 points is if you're playing a team of dead guys, or the Angels of Buttonwillow Little League! (Full disclosure: I once played outfield for the Angels of Buttonwillow Little League)
Last night was what baseball is all about. The slide at the plate. The dive for the ball in the outfield. A guy that shouldn't be able to hit a home run blasting one into the Dodger Stadium Pavilion seats.
It can all turn on a single play. And last night it turned a lot!
On to Game 3 in Houston.
Let's go Dodgers!
