Mothers Day at Dodger Stadium

We were back at Dodger Stadium yesterday afternoon as Alicia and Seth took Donna to see the Dodgers play the Houston Astros. They let The Ancient One tag along. The seats were wonderful, upper deck reserved, Section 10, Row A with this view as the game began:

The Dodgers took an early lead on a home run by 1st Baseman James Loney who is seen here approaching home plate after his blast into the right field stands:

All was well until there were 2 outs in the top of the 7th when Pitcher Hiroki Kuroda yielded his first hit. He seemed to tire and was having trouble throwing strikes after that hit. The Dodgers went to the bullpen and the rest is history; 6 Houston runs that inning. The Dodgers went down to their 4th straight defeat.

But it was still a wonderful day; the sun was shining and we all had a great time at the stadium followed by a wonderful dinner at El Cholo, a Mexican restaurant near downtown L.A. that dates back to 1923. What more could I ask for; the family together for baseball and good food on Mother's Day. Well, it would have been better if the Dodgers had won.

Thanks to Alicia and Seth for a great day.
