So after the Angels tied up the game in the 6th inning the score remand the same they went to the 10th and the game was ended with a 6-6 tie. Which can only happens in spring training.

This was my last Rockies game of the trip they played 3 innings then were cancelled because of rain. As was the game I went to in Maryvale between the Rangers and the Brewers.

 

Thanks for checking out the post and check back as I blog more about my trip to Spring Training. Including 2 Diamondbacks game and a look at their side of the complex at Salt River Fields.
