August 28, 2010 - Dodgers at Rockies

Home plate umpire Marty Foster ejects the pitcher Ronald Belisario, as catcher Rod Barajas pleads his case.

Ramirez put on a little show for me, despite appearing only as a pinch hitter and striking out. The next day, he would be ejected after one pitch for his last at bat as a Dodger.

Manny being Manny - dugout style.

Casey Blake gets caught in a pickle and elbows EY2 in the face as he's tagged out.

Even if the Rockies were in the game up to that point, Casey Blake's 8th inning slam shut the door on the home team.

Former Rockie Scott Podsednik scrambles back to the bag. He's had decent success with the White Sox, Royals and Dodgers after kind of sucking with the Rockies back in 2008.

Casey Blake, Grand Slam.

August 25, 2010 - Braves at Rockies

August day games can be very good. Much better than June day games. With good light and a team I've already shot twice, I look for some out-of-the norm stuff. Especially when the home team is down 10-1 in the 3rd inning. It ended up being a pretty special game, though, as the Rockies rallied beginning in the 6th inning to eventually win 12-10 against a strong Braves team.

The ballpark as Todd Helton sees it.

"Long reliever" Manuel Corpas is checked out by "team doctor" Ubaldo Jimenez after a terrible couple of innings. Corpas left the game in the 4th inning after pitching parts of three innings, giving up 3 earned runs, and with the score 10-1 against...

EY2 celebrates the tying run. Awesome afternoon.

August 24, 2010 - Braves at Rockies

The "Rookie Bullpen Guy" for most teams gets to sport a Hello Kitty or Dora or Hannah Montana backpack as they head out to the bullpen before the first pitch. Always pretty funny to see.

Jason Heyward has a pretty weird swing, actually. Whatever works.

Troy Tulowitzki made an aweful baserunning error, and it probably didn't help when Jason Heyward ran by him and offered a little pat on the back.

Rockies took the series opener 5-4. Braves manager Bobby Cox is in his last season, while Rookie of the Year candidate Jason Heyward is in his first.
