Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies
My 67th game at Coors this year.
Today I headed to Coors straight from work and did not realize that this was a 6:10 game and I walked into Coors at 5:55. I had to work till 5 and thought it was a 6:40 game. So did not get to BP and did not get autographs.
Jhoulys Chacin as the starting pitcher for the Rockies he did not have a great start. Adam Eaton started the game with a triple and A.J. Pollack followed that with a home run.
Randall Delgado was the starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks. He faced 6 Rockies batters in the first 2 innings. The only base runner was Troy Tulowitzki in the 2nd. The D’backs ended the inning when Jordan Pacheco hit into a double play.
Jhoulys took offensive matters into his own hands and hit a 2 run home run to tie the game at 2. this was his first MLB and pro home run. He is batting just under .200 this season has 7 RBI’s and a double.
The Rockies did not score again till another home run in the 6th it was a Charlie Blackmon solo shot to lead off the 6th inning.
Blackmons home run was followed up by a Corey Dickerson home run 2 batters later. Dickersons was a 3 run home run and the Rockies had a 5-2 lead.
Todd Helton hit his 589th double in the 6th as well. He would score on a Charlie Culberson single for the 4th run of the inning and a 6-2 lead.
The D’backs got a third run in the top of the 7th. (6-3) Rox
Troy Tulowitzki did not want to left out and hit a home run of his own in the 7th. Scoring Blackmon and himself to give the Rockies a 8-3 lead.
In the 9th inning we started heading out to the Pavilion’s so we could head down to the field for the post game fire works. Here is a photo of Manny Corpas pitching in the inning. he was the Rockies 4th pitcher of the game Chacin pitched 6 full innings. He allowed 2 runs on 6 hits he did not strike out a batter and walked 5. beside the number he worked well and got out of inning, plus he hit a home run so that erased the runs allowed to give the Rockies a chance for the win. Mitchell Boggs, Matt Belilse and Manny all pitched 1 inning a piece.
The Rockies did get a 9th and final run in the 8th inning and won this game 9-4. The D’backs scored the 4th run in the 9th.
So after the game thanks to Geoff I was able to head down and watch the fireworks from the field.
I went down to the field and watched the fireworks with E2themnfnB, Tara and Rachel or as I called them me on field fireworks runnin’ crew!!!
Here are 2 photos of the fireworks.
