Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Tonight we attended a late afternoon game at AT&T Park to see the San Francisco Giants versus the Los Angeles Dodgers.
While the rivalry is still fierce, but not the intensity I remembered at my first Giants-Dodgers game 24 years ago at Candlestick, the games are always fun to watch.
It didn't look good at first. Barry Zito, the much maligned pitcher, was the starter and gave up 2 runs in the first inning. But those were the only runs he gave up and it enabled the Giants to stay in the game. They scored 1 run in the 6th inning, then rallied with 4 runs in the 7th inning to win the game, 5-2. Zito ended up with 10 strikeouts and the victory.
We got to the game early and got to see batting practice. Munched on some yummy chicken tenders, garlic fries and Ghirardelli hot fudge sundae. Best way to spend a Saturday at the ball park.
