Phillies vs. Reds

Last Saturday we realized that the Phillies were coming to Cincinnati this week to play the Reds so naturally we had to look into getting tickets for one of the games. :) We found cheap tickets on the 5th row a little past 1st base and we couldn't pass them up. So Monday night I picked Rory up from work at 4 and we headed off to Cincinnati. Here we are just driving up to the city.
Outside of the baseball stadium.

Howard stretching.

Rory got a great picture of Hamels and Ruiz walking by. Hamels pitched 6 innings and they only scored one run on him.

Phillips is a Reds player, but he's pretty cool. He's really popular with the fans. Before the game he came out and took some pictures and signed some autographs.

We got a kick out of the rookie pitcher walking by. :)

This was our view of the game. We had amazing seats! We had a great view of the jumbo tron. We had a few foul balls come our way. We were so close to the field!
We had a blast at the game! Hopefully we can make it back out there next year when the Phillies come to visit again!
