Coors Field 6/29/11
Went to the Rockies game yesterday vs the White Sox. I was there at 5 for batting practice and had a line drive of the bat of Rios go right to me. I would of caught it if it wasn’t for a guy stick his glove in front of me and somehow miss it. Adam Dunn hit one right over the officeliquidator.com sign.
So the pitching matchups for the night were Jimenez vs Buehrle. It was 2-0 Sox early until the Rox came back with a couple HRs and it was tied 2-2 in the 7th. In the bottom of the 8th, Colorado had the bases juiced with only 1 out. They grounded into a DP and wouldn’t score. In the 9th, the closer for the Rockies Houston Street was in. Quickly it was 1st and 3rd with nobody out. Somebody hit a shallow fly ball to right and the fielder threw a rocket to the catcher. The Sox runner would of been out by a mile if the throw hadn’t short-hopped the catcher. The Sox would score just one and it would be enough to win the game. Here’s the final scorecard:
