It's hard for me to root against the Dodgers after holding season tickets for several years, and especially this year as so many of the kids I watched move up from the minors are maturing into excellent ballplayers.
Both teams had pitching problems tonight, with Jimenez allowing 4 runs before I was even settled into my seat at the stadium (had to watch the Red Sox take a commanding lead before I entered), even though I was only 2 outs into the game. It's hard to overcome that.
But MacDonald allowed 3 runs in the third, and the game remained close until the end, yet the Rockies never took a lead or even tied the game.
Manny looked terrible, striking out 3 times.
Otherwise much was to be expected.
