Astros Vs Rockies
Game 3 of series
My 24th game of the season @ Coors
Before the Game the Rockies announced that they would designate starting pitcher Jamie Moyer for assignment. So he can be sent to the Springs, traded or fully released from the team. The Rockies would be responsible for his 1 Million dollar salary no matter what happens. It has been interesting watching the Moyer story unfold from Spring Training to Now, But after most of his starts may have started well but rarely ended that way. Well no matter which decision is made it was cool having the opportunity to watch him make history here at Coors. From being the Oldest pitcher in the MLB to win game to being the Oldest to get a hit and score an RBI.
The batting practice was just OK today. The since I came from work I only saw about 2 or 3 minutes of the Rockies BP. The astros did hit pretty well but not as much as Monday’s BP and not in the same areas or as consistent to where they hit. I did have a chance on a few but did not get any. Today after heading to the wall Jordan Pacheco signed and at the very end Cargo signed a few.
Carlos Gonzalez and Esmil Before the game. Everyday while the bullpen pitchers head out I have noticed Caargo and Esmil do a very elaborate hand shake. Today i photographed the whole sequence but just used this photo. This post will have plenty of Cargo!
Pacheco tosses to Helton to get t Jose Altuve out for the first out of the game. It did advance lead off hitter Jordan Schafer to second.
I did not get Friedrich’s first pitch because Astros first base coach Bobby Meacham stepped in my way. Friedrich would face 4 batters in the inning. The Rockies Dexter Fowler started the bottom of the 1st by striking out. Marco Scutaro walked Cargo hit a single. But was out at second when Tulo hit a single, Tulo would then steal second and Helton would hit a single to load the bases.
Tulo stealing second base.
Michael Cuddyer would hit an opposite field HR over the scoreboard in right.
Cuddy high-fives Helton at home!!
Wilin tried to leg out a single to extend the inning but was thrown out.
The Astros scored a run in the 2nd. (5-1) Rox
Christian Friedrich throwing in the 5th inning. The Astros tied up the game in the 3rd. He pitched well in the 4th and he was very good in the 5th. Despite letting up 2 single, all three outs where strikes.
Cargo took the lead for the Rockies in the 5th hitting a lead off HR (6-5) Rox.
Wilin Rosario slides into home for a run in the 6th. he lead off the inning with a double and scored (7-5)
Ok it’s a sequence!!
Glenallen Hill makes another great call as Dexter Fowler rounds first for his 6th inning 3 run HR. Way to Go Dex!!! It would score 3 runs. (1o-5) Rox.
Dex heading to home after his HR.
Cargo thought we needed a few more runs so he hit his second HR of the game for 2 runs this time! (12-5) Rox
The Rockies did bat around in the 6th sending 10 batters to the plate. Scoring 6 runs.
To get Carlos Lee out to lead off the 7th.
Ohh yeah you guessed it still creepy!!!
In the bottom of the 8th. Cargo figured the third time would be the charm hitting his third HR of the game on three consecutive at bats. (13-5) Rox. He was 4 for 5 with 3 HRs and 7 RBI’s single-handedly getting Tacos. So I guess the commercial is right he has your Tacos right here.
Michael Cuddy’s 1st Inning HR was his second grand slam od the season and his 6th of the season. Dexter Fowlers was his 8th of the season. Cargo hit his 11th,12th and 13th today and has 41 RBI’s this season.
Marc Stout interviewing Caros Gonzalez after the game.
Then he interviewed Michael Cuddyer.
After that I ran into these shady people behind the dugout!
Durring the game Umpire Tim Timmonds did another cool thing.
He brought a ball over to the kid who was sitting in front of me. It is really cool when the umpires do things like this. even know this is a profile you can totally tell he has a huge smile on his face.
Great game a Coors the Rockies now have a winning streak! winning 3 games in a row. Tonight they go for the sweep of the Astros for the 4th game of the series. I hope they carry this momentum this weekend when the face the first place Dodgers for 3 games. It is great to see the offence really getting things together. now to get this pitching in order and we may have a chance for a very long and what will be a difficult run in the standings. Lets turn this around guys. I still believe, Do you!!!
Well see you tonight at Coors. I will also be at Jacksons at 1 P.M for Dex and friends todays guest is Jordan Pacheco!
