So once again because of the perfectly timed storm there was no batting practice once again!

No this is not the 4th inning of another bad start for the Rockies starters Matt Belisle got the start for the Rockies for this game because Franklin Morales was suppose to start but could not because of his wife expecting a baby. Belisle started a little shaky but settled down after the first 2 batters he faced hit single he did get out of the inning and the Reds remained scoreless till the 3rd inning.

Johnny Cueto started for the Reds.

Charlie Blackmon got on base after the ball that got passed first baseman Jack Hannahan

The Rockies did not score in the first inning but did get a run in the 2nd a solo home run by Nolan Arenado. The Reds got their first run in the 3rd Johnny Cuerto lead off the inning with a single and then scored on a Jay Bruce sac ground out to tie the game 1-1

The second inning saw the Reds get there second run and the Rockies would than again tie the  game in the 6th. In the 6th Justin Morneau started the inning with a walk and scored on a Corey Dickerson double.

If you did not notice I did not take many photos this game!  There was not much going on and because of a elbow that has been giving me trouble since before my road trip is making hard to hold a camera for an extended amount of time. I am not really sure how I got through a couple of games during my trip it was that bad. I think I may be day today after this weekend!!!

Back to baseball the Reds scored a third run in the 9th inning and got the 3-2 win. O.K. the bull pen did not do that bad this game but the Rockies still lost. Ottavino took the lose and Cueto who pitched 8 innings got the win. He threw 106 pitches in the eight innings he pitched. Belise went 3 innings throwing 49 pitches, giving up 4 hits and 1 run, striking out and walking 1. The Rockies did use 6 pitchers in this game Nick Masset pitched the 4th and 5th. Nicasio the 6th, Brothers the 7th Boone Logan and Adam Ottavino the 8th and Ottavino continued till the 9th.

So that is it for this brief game.
