Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas - August 28, 2003

The game between the Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros. The great seats weren't so great for taking pictures, since I was behind the screen.

Fred McGriff bats for the Dodgers. [2048x1536]

Craig Biggio bats. [2048x1536]


Wilson Alvarez pitcher for LA. [2048x1536]


Lance Berkman's 2-run 1st-inning double. [2048x1536]

I believe this is Jeff Bagwell coming around to score on the Berkman double. [2048x1536]

A thunderstorm is going on outside. Retractable roof stadiums are good. [2048x1536]


Adam Everett rounds the bases after a home run to bring Houston to within 4-3. [2048x1536]

There goes the train in celebration of the home run. It now carries oranges. I wonder what it carried when this was Enron Field. [2048x1536]

Alvarez leaves. He couldn't make it through the fifth. [2048x1536]

Jump ahead to the seventh inning stretch.. [2048x1536]

After the traditional Take Me Out to the Ballgame, they sing Deep in the Heart of Texas. Seems appropriate. [2048x1536]

With the thunderstorm moved on out, the roof is opened up for the last couple of innings. [2048x1536]

And look, there's one guy pushing it open! [2048x1536]

Opening.... [2048x1536]

Recent Yankee Robin Ventura is on to play defense at first. [2048x1536]

The roof is open. [2048x1536]

Eric Gagne is on in the 8th to try to close it out. [2048x1536]







And Gagne is successful - with some help from his defense. He remains perfect on the season with 44 saves in 44 chances. [2048x1536]
