D’Backs Vs. Rockies
Game 3 of series.
My 4th game of the year @ Coors, 5th including the Springs.
Today was also Jackie Robinson. This year marked the 65th Anniversary of becoming the first black player in the Major Leagues.
As with all Sundays at Coors it was autograph Sunday.
Today Juan Nicasio, Tyler Chatwood, Rex Brothers and Matt Reynolds signed.
I was able to get Tyler Chatwood on a Card and Rex Brothers on my default photo of Coors Field which is a photo from the upper deck of the sunset on the last game of the season last year.
Drew Pomeranz was the starting pitcher for the Rockies. This was his first start of the year. Drew did have a start in Tulsa on April 10. He went 4 innings striking out 4 and letting up no runs.
Pomeranz pitching to the Diamondbacks Ryan Roberts. Roberts and Gerado Parra both grounded out Justin Upton than hit a single and Michael Young hit an HR for a quick 2-0 lead for the D’backs.
Troy Tulowitzki makes one of his patent off-balance throws to first. Kids don’t try this at home. Maybe he is trying to do a running man!!!! I don’t know this just does not look comfortable to throw like that.
Chris Young touches home after his 2 run HR.
Drew Pomeranz pitches to Aaron Hill in the 1st. inning.
Eric Young Jr. grounding out in the 1st inning.
Here is a look from section 307.
I was going to walk aroung the whole concource but decided to head to my seat which I very rarly get to usually I walk the concource or hang with friends in other sections.
The Diamondbacks scored another run in the 3rd. for a 3-0 lead.
Pomeranz pitching in the 5th inning to one of his last batters. He was taken out with 1 out and I believe 2 runners on base.
Josh Roenicke warming up in the bullpen.
The D’backs did score to for a 5-0 lead.
Drew Pomeranz coming out of the game in the 5th. He threw 108 pitches 45 for strikes and 63 balls. Letting up 5 runs and 9 hits.
The rain started shortly after the pitching change so I headed down to the concource by the bullpen.
Matt Reynolds heading to the bullpen in the 8th inning. He struck out 2 in the inning and got the third to pop out to short.
Tulo Catching the pop up in the 8th inning.
After Chris Nelson struck out in the 8th. Jonny Herrera hit a double to start a Rockies mini rally. He and Eric Young Jr. both scored (5-2) D’backs. Tulo singled and Ramon Hernandez pitch hit in the pitchers spot which was 5th in the batting order after a double switch earlier in the game. The Rockies sent 9 batters to the plate in the ninth and it looked like there may be a little Lodo magic for the third game in a row but they fell a little short. The D’Backs used 4 pitches in the inning.
Michal Young being tossed out at first for the last run of the game. He was responsible for 3 of the 5 D’backs runs.
The final score was 5-2. The Rockies did win the Series taking the first 2. Hopefully last years Sundays whoa’s won’t carry over to this year and this game was a slight glitch not the start of a Sunday trend. The Rockies are 4 and 5 on the year. and currently 3rd in the N.L. west. 4.5 games back from the Dodgers who have had an amazing 9-1 start to the season. Looks like the owner ship change was good for them.
Starting Monday the Rockies will be playing the San Diego Padres.So we get to ask the question of where is Huston Street once again!!
I should be there for all 3.
See Ya at Coors.
