Christian Fredrich was the starting pitcher for the Rockies. Christian has been  having a rough season on the mound tonight was no different. It did start out very well he struck out the first 2 batters he faced in the 1st and got the 3rd out on a ground ball.

After facing 4 more batters and giving up 4 more hits including doubles by Brennan Boesch and Luis Jimenez each scoring runs Christian was removed from the game. He gave up 7 runs in this inning on 7 hits just in this inning. For the game he gave up 7 runs on 11 hits striking out Striking out 3 and walked 1 which was also in the 6th inning.

He was replaced by Wilton Lopez. He got both batters he faced out in the 6th and pitched into the 7th. He pitched really well in the 7th got the first batter in the inning to pop out and then struck out the next 2 for a 1,2,3 inning.

Tommy Fields (yes, former Rocky) started the 8th inning with a triple and he would score on a Boesch single to give the Bee’s a 8-6 lead.

That would be the final score as well and after a good start Friedrich would continue with is not so good year. That is it for this one from Security Service Field.

I have another one from the final game of this series to come.

After the game like the do every Friday night they had fireworks!
