Diamondbacks vs. Rockies

My 25th game of the season at Coors.

Today being a day game  meant no batting practice but I does mean there is a good chance to get pitchers autographs. So after the stadium completely opened we headed down to the wall on the Rockies side of the field. There were a few player throwing and getting in their pregame warm ups and work mainly consisting of throwing, running and stretching. the starting pitcher from a few games ago may do a bullpen session. So after they were done Jeff Francis, Tyler Chatwood and Wilton Lopez stopped an signed. before the start of the game Wilin Rosario who did not start this game came out and signed for a while when he got to me I had him sign 2 photos one of him and Juan Nicasio and another of Him, Jerry Weinstein, Tyler Chatwood and Jim Wright. I also had Tyler sign it when he was signing. It was the first photo in the post about Saturdays game. http://roxaddict.mlblogs.com/2013/05/19/lincecum-fall-and-holds-onto-the-ball/

D.J LeMahieu also came over to sign because I had a photo to give him of a play he made last year. He signed a copy for me and another photo I had taken in the springs a few weeks ago.

Today Jorge De La Rosa started for the Rockies. He had a very good first inning facing only 3 batters and the last 2 outs were strike outs to Didi Gregorious and Paul Goldschmidt.

Cargo also tried the bunt thing, it was fielded by Harris for the second out of the 8th inning. Cargo had a good shot of hitting of hitting another cycle with his first hits were the Home Run and Triple. he just did not finish it but had a great game getting 3 RBI’s and scoring twice. accounting for 3 of the 4 Rockies runs.

Matt Belise and Rex Brothers finished up the game both pitching an inning each. Belise the 8th and Brothers came out for the save. They each faced 3 batters.

With this win and the Giants losing to the Nationals there is now a 3 way tie for first place in the National League West. All 3 teams had Thursday off and the Rockies will be in San Francisco for a weekend series. The Diamondbacks are playing the Padres in Phoenix this weekend.

So the Rockies won 4-1 and this post is done!
