Andre Ethier gets hit by a pitch.

There are very few days in my life when I actually wish I were rich, but today happened to be one of those days. My sister scored us field level seats behind home plate, which are a world of difference from our season seats in reserve level. As luck would have it, every time someone gives me amazing seats, the Dodgers lose. Every single time I've sat in the Dugout Club they've lost. Every time I've sat on field level behind home plate, they've lost. Someone up there seems to think I don't deserve to have a good view of the field. Fine. I get it now.

Besides the view, this was the first time I've sat in field level since they renovated in the off-season. The concourse is like a Westfield mall now, all white and clean and expensive looking. You can get Canters and Mrs. Beasleys, and the condiment dispensers are made of stainless steel. There are Dyson super hand dryers in the restrooms. It's a whole new ballgame down there.

We sat there in the lap of luxury and watched quite a game. Billingsley struck out a career high 12 batters, but still gave up 5 earned runs to maintain his record of 0 wins. One batter from each team scored on a wild pitch, which always makes for a good time. Jeff Kent got extremely angry after a runner was called safe at second, as Kent felt certain that he'd touched the bag for a force, and got tossed a few innings later (as did Joe Torre, who came to his defense). In the end, the Dodgers lost 6-4, splitting one of those weird 2 game series things with the DBacks. The Colorado Rockies will be at Dodger Stadium Fri-Sun. See you there.
