I got down to Coors after 5P.M. which is rare for me but I headed in and The Giants were taking batting practice and it was their 2nd or 3rd group. So I was just hanging around in the pavilions and I caught my 3rd baseball of the year.

This one is going to be quick.

After Brandin Pill hit a double to start the 2nd inning for the Giants he advanced to third on a Andres Torres fly out to center field. He would score along with 2 other runs in the inning. (4-0) Rockies The Rockies got 1 back in the bottom of the 2nd and they would tie the game at 4.

Dexter Fowler sliding into 3rd after and than would score on a bad throw from Angel Pagan to third. This must of a scary moment for Dex as Sandoval took to the air!

The Giants took a 5-1 lead in the 4th.

Jordan Pacheco came up in the 5th inning with bases loaded and 2 out. I was like wow this should get us a run or 2 since he hits well under pressure and is good for a single or double which can get the Rockies 2 or 3 runs and would take the lead. Instead he hit a home run to left field scoring Cargo, Rosario and Lemahieu as well as himself to give the Rockies a 9-5 lead. Fowler also scored earlier in the inning.

Pacheco steps on home plate with the 3 base runners standing at home. The Rockies got one more run in the 6th when Cargo hit a solo home run. (10-5) Rox

The Giants did get 3 runs in the 7th and an additional 1 in the 8th. They did fall short of the win by 1 the Rockies took this one 10-9 as the final this was a much needed win for the Rockies and it was great after the disappointing lose the night before.

Rosario points to the sky after Rafael Betancourt struck out the sides in an incredible save for him. This was Gregor Blanco make the final out of the game. This broke a 10 game losing street for the Rockies against the Giants.  That’s it for this one still got 2 games against the Giants this weekend.

See You at Coors.
