Game 2 of series

My 11th Game at Coors

Last Year on this date the Rockies played the coldest game in MLB history against the Atlanta Braves. Today it was 72 degrees at first pitch.

This game started pretty well for me I found a Easter egg (Baseball) while walking into the pavilions and then caught a second during the Giants batting practice. I also got Carlos Gonzalez on my 2014 team project now I only need 4 players, Troy Tulowitzki, Corey Dickerson, Michael Cuddyer and Nolan Arenado. I also need 2 coaches EY and Blake Doyle.

Franklin Morales pitched this pitchers battle for the Rockies. He struck out the Giants first batter Angel Pagan. The Giants did get 1 runner and that was Buster Posey who hit a single.

IMG_2150 Brandon Barnes took know time to get to second base he hit a single on the second pitch of the game and stole second on the first pitch to Nolan Arenado.

IMG_2157Madison Bumgarner was the starting pitcher for the Giants. Barnes and Carlos Gonzalez both hit single in the first but neither had scored.

Troy Tulowitzki got the first run o the game in the 4th a solo home run in the 4th. It is nice to see him hit a somewhat timely homer. Usually his homers are solo when we already have a lead!

Morales contributed offensively in the 4th as well getting on base on a Brandon Belt error at first.

 In the 5th Hunter Pence did the same to get the Giants on the board and the game tied at 1.

Nolan Arenado then hit the third solo homer of the game in the 5th to lead off the 5th inning and the Rockies would take a 2-1 lead. This was a very low scoring game and there were a total of 17 hits by both teams but just the 3 runs so that is about hit for this one. Morales pitched well and kept working out of innings and preventing runners from scoring. Bumgarner pitched all 8 innings for the Giants the Rockies used 4 pitches, Ottavino and Brothers in the 8th and Hawkins in the 9th.

So that is it for this game, short sweet and a win can’t ask for anything more!
