After the Eagles game on Sunday, we weren’t done with sports. Oh no! Not by a long shot. While baseball is over for the vast majority of teams in Major League Baseball, my boys in the white and red pinstripes play on. They are currently fighting for their lives in the National League Championship Series versus the San Francisco Giants. At the time of these photographs, the Phils were down 0-1 in the series and with Roy Oswalt on the mound, the Philly phaithful (yes, that’s spelled correctly) knew we were coming back! Things have not quite kept going the way we would hope they would, but their is always hope my friends. Here are some photos from Sunday night’s game.
The view from our seats. I generally prefer behind the plate, but with play-off games beggers can't be choosers. 🙂
The National League Championship Series logo on the field. There was on on the first base side and one on the third base side; this is third base.
Exchanging the line-up cards at home plate. Always very polite.
The following are photographs of Roy Oswalt’s first pitch of the game.
Shane Victorino's first at-bat
Chase Utley's first at-bat
Placido Polanco's first at-bat. Found out today that Polly was born the day after I was! Happy belated Polly!
Ryan Howard's first at-bat
Jason Werth's first at-bat
Jimmy Rollins' first at-bat
Chase Utley scoring the first run of the night.
Raul Ibanez's first at-bat
Carlos Ruiz's first at-bat
Roy Oswalt's first at-bat. In the National League pitcher's bat.
Though it is pretty rare to see them on the base pads. Or scoring! Which Oswalt did this inning, running right through Sam Perlozzo's stop sign.
Last out of the game. Phew! A win for the Fightin's!
