Braves Vs. Rockies
Game 3 of Series
My 16th game of the Year at Coors.
Figured I would switch up the graphic and use one with the starting line up for the Braves.
It was a Sunday game which means arrive to the stadium early for a good spot in-line for Autographs. For the second Sunday in a row I forgot my ticket at home. This week I realized I forgot it on my way so I headed back to the house and got it. After I arrived I was still third in-line. So more important things who signed today? Jonny Herrera, Tyler Colvin, Edgmer Escalona and Carlos Torres. The first line I got on was for Tyler Colvin who I had sign a card. I than got on Carlos Torres’ line he was a few minutes late signing. I had him sign my Coors Field sunset photo I have been getting as many people on the team to sign. It is Coming along pretty well. Once the 4 were done I headed down towards the wall. Not long after being there, Jamie Moyer headed out of the Dugout he started over by the dugout and signed for about a half hour til he was pretty well up the right field line. He signed a card and the photo. Michael Cuddyer and Wilin Rosario also signed at the wall.
Jamie Moyer signing for fans.
Before the game they also had one of the Little League parades. Here are a few of the little league Rockies, walking around the warning track.
Juan Nicasio tosses a ball into the crowd as he makes his way to the dugout with catcher Ramone Hernandez.
Juan Nicasio pitching to Braves lead off batter Michael Bourn. Bourn had 13 total at bats in the previous 2 games. He got 5 hits, walked twice and scored four times, with 1 RBI. This game Nicasio would strike him out to start the game. Two of the out in the inning were strike outs and looked like things were going well for the Rockies. Nicasio did hit Freddie Freeman and he was the only base runner.
Michael Cuddyer catches Martin Prado’s fly ball to right which was the 2nd out of the 1st.
Brandon Beachy was the starting pitcher for the Braves.
… but it was caught at the wall by Martin Prado.
After walking Carlos Gonzalez stole second in the first.
The Rox did give a fight starting with Giambi walking to lead of the inning. Hey got out at 2nd on a Cuddyer hit to third. Ramone Hernandez hit a single. Dexter Fowler and Juan Nicasio then bot struck out leaving Cuddyer and Hernandez on base.
The Braves scored 3 runs in the 3rd to take the lead. It was an HR by Freddie Freeman it was his second HR of the series and the first was also a 3rd. inning HR on friday night.
Adam Ottivino came in to relieve Nicasio. In the 6th inning. Nicasio did not have a great game letting up 9 hits, 5 runs, 6 runs, walked 3 and hit a batter in the first. He did also strike out 5. As he left the game it was (6-0) Braves
Yup, Still Creepy!
The Braves scored a 7th run in the 7th. The Rockies showed a little promise in the 7th scoring 2 runs sending 7 to the plate.
They did end up loosing their 3rd straight against Atlanta. Finishing the home stand 3-6. Not a good homestand.
Ramone Hernandez runs down the first base line as he make the last out of the game.
After this game they were 12-15 for the year. After a lose to the Padre on Monday. They are 6.5 back in the west and only lead the Padres by 3 games.
Well That is it for this one.
