I went to two Angels @ Dodgers games last week, and unfortunately I saw the two losses that the Dodgers suffered. No matter; it's always a great night to be at the Stadium, even under bad circumstances.
The first night was Monday night, when I went with Mrs. Sax to see the Dodgers drop a 3-2 decision in the opening game of the series. I had laughed earlier about getting two more t-shirts for the ever-expanding Sax Dodger T-Shirt Collection, but the joke was on me, as we arrived too late to pick up one of the Jaime Jarrin call t-shirts.
In retrospect, missing out on a t-shirt wasn't entirely surprising, since I knew they only had 30K to give away and the interleague rivalry game would attract more than 30K fans. We probably had a good shot at scoring the shirts based on our normal timing, but I made the audible on the way to the Stadium to stop at xoia to pick up to-go dinner. Their beef brisket banh mi sandwiches didn't disappoint, I tell you (especially doused in hot sauce); I would definitely recommend it if you're zipping through Echo Park. Xoia was a good call, just to break up the Dodger Dog routine for kicks.
Here are my pictures from the evening of June 11:
A glutton for punishment, I went back Wednesday night (June 13) for more Angels @ Dodgers goodness. Actually, badness, since Nathan Eovaldi went out there again and despite the Dodgers keeping it close, the Angels again won it late. Sigh.
I'm now on a three-game loss streak (and the Sons' collective record has taken a beating, too, as you can see from the sidebar). I gotta get me a win.
