Game 34: Happy Birthday Isaac!

Friday night I was invited to go to the Phillies game with my friend Isaac for his birthday.  Dad got me out of school early and we headed down to Philly.  We got there early enough to watch the end of Braves batting practice and I was trying to get a ball for Isaac.  That didn't go so well...

After batting practice we went to Bull's BBQ to get something to eat.  Greg Luzinski is always there signing autographs, so I knew to take a few cards.  I got 2 signed (1 for Gavin) and also had an extra card for Isaac to get signed.

This would be the Braves last visit to Philly this year, so I was excited to see Chipper Jones play one more time.  Before the game, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley came out and presented Chipper with a painting of him playing at Citizens Bank Park

We had great seats for the game and had a great view of all of the Phillies home runs.  The coolest part was when Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz went back to back!  Kyle Kendrick pitched a great game and the Phillies won 6-2!  At that point they still had a shot at the post season but went on to lose Saturday and Sunday...blowing their chances.

Howard and Ruiz hit back to back home runs!

All in all it was a great night with Isaac, Pastor Eric, and my dad watching Phillies baseball!  Thanks for letting me share in your special day Isaac!

Happy Birthday Isaac on the big screen!
