Kansas City Royals vs. Colorado Rockies
Game 2 of series.
This was the second game of the series, I was at the first game of the series somehow I did not take my camera to the game and had no photos so did not do a post. The Royals did win the first game 7-4 Tyler Matzek started game 1 for the Rockies and had a pretty good outing till the 7th inning when the Rockies gave up 3 runs and K.C. too a 4-2 lead. Rex Brothers came in in the 8th and once again melted down, this time after getting 2 outs to the first 2 batters and then faced 6 more batters and let up 3 runs the Royals had a 7-2 lead. The Rockies got 2 back on a Drew Stubbs home run. James Shields started for the Royals and only gave up 2 runs and one was in the first to give the Rockies a lead in the first and the second was a Nolan Arenado homerun in the 5th.
This series I got 3 baseballs during batting practice 2 on Tuesday and 1 on Wednesday. The Tuesday game both came off of Brandon Barnes one was a bouncer that I picked up and caught the second. The third was hit by D.J. LeMahieu hit about 4 rows behind me a bounced back to me.
The second game Jorge De La Rosa was the starter for the Rockies after a lead off walk to Christian Colon he struck out Omar Infante and walked the 3rd batter Billy Butler, Josh Willingham hit into a double play to end the inning.
Danny Duffy started for the Royals Josh Rutledge started the bottom of the 1st with a single and stole second he was stranded at second as the next 3 batters got out.
The Royals scored the first run of the game in the 2nd a lead off home run by Alex Gordon this gave the royal a 1-0 lead. They took a 2 -0 lead 4t after Willingham started off the inning with double and scored 2batters later on a Erik Kratz sac fly to right.
Nolan Arenado got things started the bottom of the 4th off with a triple and scored on a Wilin Rosario sac fly to center. 2-1 Royals.
Matt McBride started his first game since being called up from Colorado Spring. He came up in the 6th inning with base’s loaded and 2 outs and was put to the big league test and I think he passed! He hit a grand slam home run and the Rockies took a 5-2 lead.
This was his 3rd career home run and 1st Grand Slam.
Here he is celebrating with the 3 runners that were on base.
With the 5-2 lead La Troy Hawkins came into pitch the 9th after a very good game by Jorge De La Rosa who pitched 8 innings Giving up 2 runs on 5 hits, he did walk 3 but also struck out three. He throw 103 pitches. It was great to see a starting pitcher come to bat for himself in the 7th inning! Not something we get to see much as Rockies fans. Hawkins got all 3 Royals out in the 9th and the Rockies won this game with the 5-2 to split this 2 game series with the Royals.
The Rockies celebrate this win.
Matt McBride gets the water bucket from teammate Charlie Blackmon.
That is it for this one. After a off day on Thursday the Rockies will have a 3 game series vs. the Miami Marlins.
See you at Coors.
San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies
My 18th and 19th games of the season
Due took lake of photos and time I am doing a combined post for these 2 games against the Padres.
The first was a pitching battle Between Rockies Starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa and the Padres and former Rockies Eric Stultz.
Jorge De La Rosa throwing the first pitch to the Padres Chris Denorfia. Who he struck out after Evereth Cabrera ground out he would also strike out Chase Headley.
Eric Stulzs the did start to bad either he got Charlie Blackmon to ground out, Drew Stubbs struck out and Troy Tulowitzki flew out to right field.
After 3 complete hitless inning for both the Rockies and the Padres Stubbs got a ball down the 3rd base line for a double to break up the No-No for Stultz. The Padres did have 2 base runners in the 2nd Carlos Quentin walked and he got out at second on a Cameron Maybin hit ball which was a fielder choice and Maybin got on first. He would make the third out after a bad jump on a stolen base attempt and end the inning.
Stubbs making the turn at first with Eric Young giving him the O.K. to head to second.
Jorge continued to pitch very well in the 4th still facing the minimum amount of batter to this point 12 up 12 down not with out a base runner but with no hits. The Rockies put together a few hits in the 5th and Jorge got on base because of a Jedd Gyorko error scoring Jordan Pacheco from third to contribute to his cause and get the Rockies on the board 1-0. He did hurt his leg a little running out the play but was O.K. and remained in the game.
Jorge continued is reign over the Padres through 6 innings. Bud Black removed Stultz in the 7th after Blackmon hit a single scoring D.J. LeMahieu. 2-0 Rockies.
Nick Vincent came in for the Padres instead of throwing a pitch is first throw was to first base.
Yonder Alfonso missed the ball and the ball bounced around in foul territory and Blackmon advanced to second.
Denorfia broke up Jorge’s No-No in the 7th with a double. That was the only hit that Jorge would give up till a single by Todd Hundley in the 8th and he was then removed from the game by Walt Weiss.
After arguing a strike 3 call in the 8th someone missed his first half inning of the year. Nolan Arenado was tossed from the game.
LaTroy Hawkins came into the game in the 9th with a slight bit of drama Denorfia started the inning with his 2nd double of the game and only the third hit for the Padres of the game. He later scored Headley single but the Rockies still had a 3-1 lead the third run was in the 8th. tulo scored after a lead off single.
Cameron Maybin strikes out to end the game and the Rockies won 3-1. What a great game to watch if you are into great pitching and a low amount of hits which does cut down on action and photos because well how many shots can you get of the pitcher pitching!
Now the second game of the series was not as great from the pitching side of things.
Jordan Lyles started for the Rockies and started with a 5-0 record for the year and has pretty much been the Rockies best starter this year. The Padres decide to prove other wise after a strike out to Denorfia he walked Cabrera and Seth Smith who started for the Padres today in right field. The second out was also a strike out this one to Headley but Alfonso hit a double scoreing both of the walk recipients and giving the Padres a 2-0 lead. The first half inning was played with a pretty good rain coming down.
It cleared up in the bottom of the 1st and Robbie Erlin started the game for the Padres Charlie Blackmon started the inning with a typical Charlie Blackmon lead off a single with a head first dive into first base. He would get doubled up at second on a Stubbs hit. Then Tulo hit a solo home run to get the Rockies on the board 2-1 Padres.
Now this game I was just extremely tired and did not photograph too much only taking 65 photos all game and considering most of them were the 5 or 6 of each pitcher who started it really was not that many. The Padres continued the 2 run trend in the 2nd and 3rd inning to give themselves a 6-1 lead. Lyles only pitched 3 1/3rd innings giving up 6 runs on 5 hits. Walking 6 striking out 3. he just did not have his stuff tonight and could not find the strike zone. This is what really baffled me because he has been such a consistent and effective pitcher at home and on the road. Patrick Saunders from the post did tweet during the game that Lyles kept looking at his fingers so I wonder if it was a bad grip due to a blister or something to that extent.
The bullpen did do a pretty good job the remainder of the game Chris Martin who pitched the 7th inning for the Rockies did give up a 2 run home run to pinch hitter Carlos Quinten. But Tommy Kahnle finished the 4th and pitched the complete 5th. Matt Belisle pitched the 6th.
Bud Black removed starter Erlin in the 6th and once again went with Nick Vincent.
The Rockies did get a run in the 4th and 5th off Erlin. Stubbs lead off the 4th with a single and scored on a Carlos Gonzalez sac fly and Justin Morneau after a lead off double scored a Pacheco single in the 5th. After 5 it was 6-3 Padres.
The Rockies scored 2 more in the 6th on a Gonzalez double scoring Stubbs and Tulo to bring the game within 1 run. The Padres still had a 6-5 lead.
Remember the 2 run home run given up by Martin in the 8th well that gave the Padres a 8-5 lead and that was also the final score.
The Padres won this one and the series is split 1-1 with 1 more to go on Sunday!
That is it for these 2 I will be at Coors Sunday as well see you there Go Rockies!
Rockies At Royals
Game 2 of series
The morning before this game we headed to the stadium a little early because I did not want to be there to early because it was going to be a long day to begin with since we were heading back to Denver after the game. So as we are walking up to the stadium we notice the team bus coming down the road and we ran over to the place where it drops off the players. As the players got off the bus and Troy Tulowitzki stopped and signed and with that I finished my 2014 16×20 team project! Except for Lach but I am not worried about that!
We headed into the stadium early and walked around while they were doing the Science and Weather day at the K. After it finished it ended and they then cleared the stadium and we had to exit and then re-enter.
after we headed into the stadium a bunch of pitches were warming up so we waited for them to get done and a few signed. above is Chris Martin throwing.
LaTroy Hawkins throwing to Matt Belisle.
So I was able to get a 8×10 signed by Jordan Lyles, LaTroy Hawkins and Juan Nicasio.
So that was a total of 6 8×10’s signed during the trip and 4 guys on my team project.
Since I didn’t have much to be signed we decided to head to the Royals Hall of Fame. I took a few photos while in there.
Alex Gordon’s gold glove from 2012 he has 2 Gold Gloves.
In a display with give always from games, they had a t-shirt replicating the pine tar marks on George Brett’s jersey.
The Statue of Liberty from the all start game in NY in 2008.
They also had a MLB Hall of Fame area this is a Roger Hornsby Cleat. They also had Christy Mathews and Casey Stengel hat. Ty Cobb Jersey, a George Brett jersey and other bats, jerseys and cleats from many different H.O.F inductees.
The had an area all about the baseball and they had many different types of examples of baseball used through the history o the game and had this giant diagram of the inside of a current MLB baseball.
This is a display of Just Gold Gloves won by former Royals second baseman Frank White.
This was a big display in the #5 in baseballs and had George Brett’s bat and the ball from his 3000th hit.
The Royals 1985 World Series Trophy
After the Hall of Fame we walked the concourse checked out the statues the have. This was a Frank white statue.
They also had one of the Ewing Kauffman and his wife who was the owner of the Royals. He is the person responsible for the return of baseball in K.C. and was also inducted into the National Baseball H.O.F. in 2008
It was then close to game time and we headed to our seats for this game we were 8 rows behind the Rockies dugout so as Jhoulys Chacin, Mike McKenry and Jim Wright headed in to the dugout I said Good Luck to Jhoulys and he tossed me his warm up ball.
What was really cool is that it was a 20th anniversary ball that the Rockies used for games last year.
Jason Vargas was the starting pitcher for the Royals this game. Charlie Blackmon was the lead off batter for the Rockies and he popped out to the Royal catcher Salvador Perez for the first out, Vargas then struck out Brandon Barnes, walked Troy Tulowitzki and had Carlos Gonzalez ground out to first.
The Rockies went down in order in the 2nd.
Salvador Perez hit a lead off single in the top of the second.
With bases loaded Mike Moustakas came to bat and hit double clearing the bases scoring Perez, Johny Giovotella and Lorenzo Cain.
Giovotella rounding third after Moustakas hit the ball, Perez already scored and Cain is rounding second. That gave the Royals a 3-0 lead.
Eric Hosmer made the 3rd out of the inning and it was hit to Arenado at third who threw to Morneau and Morneau tossed it to Jared before heading into the dugout. It was his first gamer.
Vargas continued to sit down Rockies batters in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th innings.
Tulo complaining about a called strike 3 in the 4th inning.
After heading back into the dugout he kept going and was screaming horrible, horrible call and was then tossed from the game and walt Weiss headed out of the dugout and actually uncrossed his arms and took his hands out of his pockets for this one. He did not get kicked out. Charlie Culberson who started at second moved to short and D.J. LeMahieu came into the game at second. The Rockies did get their first hit and base runner of the game the next batter when Cargo hit a single. By the end of the 4th inning Vargas had struck out 6 Rockies batters. 5 of the 6 were swinging.
Chacin pitched 6 innings for the Rockies giving up 3 runs on 7 hits striking out only 1 and walking 2. Vargas went into the 7th with 8 strike out, giving up 5 hits and 2 runs.
Drew Stubbs got the Rockies on the board in the 7th inning with a home run scoring himself and Nolan Arenado who hit a double to get on base.After the Stubbs home run Vargas was removed and Louis Coleman came into pitch for the Royals.
McKenry takes a big swing breaking his bat during a 7th inning at bat.
Rex Brothers pitched the 7th inning for the Rockies. He pitched well in the inning facing only 3 batters and threw only 10 pitches to get the batters out.
Nori Aoki bunted during his 7th inning at bat. He was out on batters interference when the ball hit him in the foot at first. I wish I had the sequence of this play which I was getting and the card filled 2 shots after this one.
LaTroy Hawkins pitched the 8th for the Rockies he did allow a hit to Perez in the inning but that was the only Royals batter to get on base since the 5th and first hit since the 4th.
Cargo hit a single to get on base in the 9th and then Nolan Arenado walked and runners were in place for the Rockies to tie and win.
Justin Morneau take a swing he would get on base but Arenado was forced out at second. With Cargo on third Stubbs came up and a hit would tie the game and that did not happen and the Rockies failed to score the runs and they lost this one also 3-2.
This was not the best of road trips for them this year. they split with the Rangers, lost 2 of 3 against the Reds and both against the Royals. They were 2 and 5 on the trip.
Besides the scores it was a good 2 days at the K, I got a bunch of autographs done and had a great time hanging out with Jared who took the trip with me and John who we met there. I pretty much finished my team project and cleared a lot of photos out of my book. That always helps a trip worth while I also am 2 for 2 getting baseballs at Kauffman Stadium, I got a ball each day.
After the game Jared and I drove the 8.5 hours back to Denver.
So that is it for this one the Rockies are home again against the Padres this weekend, I will be there as much as I can. See You at Coors!
The Royal will also be at Coors in August on the 19th and 20th.
Mets vs. Rockies
Game 3 of series
My 15th Coors Game of the year.
Before the game Justin Mornea was awarded his watch for being the National League player of the week.
It was presented to him by the Rockies Hitting Coach Blake Doyle.
He was the second Rockies to get it this month, Charlie Blackmon won the earlier in the month of April.
Franklin Morales was the starting pitcher for the Rockies. He started the game with Juan Lagares flying out to left field. Then things started to get real ugly for him and the Rockies. Daniel Murphy hit a triple followed by a David Wright double, he walked Chris Young. By the time he got out of the first inning he faced 7 Mets batters and they scored 3 runs.
Jenrry Mejia started for the Mets he struck out Charlie Blackmon to start the inning. He then walked Drew Stubbs and Carlos Gonzalez flew out, Stubbs made a interesting third out and that was he ran to and past 2nd base on the Cargo fly out and after the catch by Chris Young in left field he ran back to first but was said that he never stepped back on second before returning to first and was doubled up at first base.
Neither the Mets or Rockies scored in the 2nd and both did not have a base runner. The Mets kept scoring in the 3rd. David Wright got his second hit of the game a single and then stole second base. Curtis Granderson hit a single followed by a Anthony Recker double his second hit of the game. The Mets got an additional 3 runs and had a 6 run lead.
They kept that 6 run lead till the 5th inning when the Rockies fought back with a huge inning lead by a Ryan Wheeler solo home run to start the inning.
After a series of single and walks Nolan Arenado came to the plate with bases loaded and proceeded to hit his 2nd Grand Slam of his career to give the Rockies a 8-6 lead. After Arenado’s homer the Mets replaced Meija with Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Arenado celebrates at home-plate with his teammates that were on base when he hit his home run.
In the 6th inning the Mets would score 2 runs with Chris Martin on the mound. Martin was replace with Rex Brothers after the first run scored on a Chris Young double. Rex gave up a single to Curtis Granderson to Score Young. The score was now 8-8.
The Rockies took the lead in the 7th inning on a Jordan Pacheco sac fly to center field and Tulo scored from third. Tulo got on base in the 7th with a single and it was his 1,000 hit of his career. So congrats to him. Even know I am not the biggest Tulo fan I do have to give credit when credit is due! This year he seems to finally be hitting timely and is performing the way the regular fans had expected him too for the last few years. This is probably the best start to the season he has in the past 3 or 4 years now lets hope he stays healthy and keeps it up before he gets traded to the Yankees!! Had to get a dig in somehow! The Rockies had a 9-8 lead at the end of the 7th.
on the same play Tulo scored on Corey Dickerson advanced to second in a close play after tagging up at first.
The Mets would tie the game in the 8th at 9 and take a 10-9 lead in the bottom of the 9th.
Then with Tulo on second after getting on base after his 1,001 hit of his career, Charley Culberson and his .111 batting avg. came in to pinch hit for the pitcher La Troy Hawkins. On the 1-2 count he took a 96 mph fast ball thrown by the Mets pitcher Kyle Farnsworth for a 2 run walk off home run it was awesome to see Charley come through with this huge homer for his first of the year. He was brought back up to the Rockies from the Springs because of Michael Cuddyer going on the disabled list. He was originally sent back to the Springs because he was not hitting for the first month of the season.
Charlie (Chuck Cobra) runs the base as the Coors crowd goes absolutely crazy after his home run.
I filled my card while he ran the bases and missed him stepping on home but got him as he came back to the 1st base side. Celebrating with Michael Cuddyer. La Troy Hawkins picks him up and carried him towards the dugout after getting him the win!
What a incredible game that looked like it was going to be a rough lose early and in true Coors fashion and the fight that this team has this year they won it 11-10.
What a great night of baseball
Tomorrow the Rockies will be facing the Mets for the 4th time and Jhoulys Chacin will make his 2014 debut as he come off the disabled list and the Rockies go for the series sweep. Unfortunately I will not be at this game because of scheduling issues at work and this will be the first Sunday game I have missed while in town in over 3 years. I do miss a Sunday game while on my road trip in the summer.
So that is it for this game.
I will be back at Coors for the 2 games Monday and Tuesday when the Texas Rangers are in town.
See you at Coors!!!
Giants vs. Rockies
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.
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!
Phillies vs. Rockies Game 2.
My 8th of the year at Coors.
Jordan Lyle was the starting pitcher for the Rockies. He faced 4 Phillies in the first and Chase Utley was the only base runner he hit a single with 2 outs and the inning ended with Ryan Howard striking out.
Kyle Kendrick was the starting pitcher for the Phillies.
There was no scoring for either team till the Rockies scored 1 in the 3rd. Nolan Arenado scored after he hit a lead-off single and scored on a D.J. LeMahieu single. D.J. moved to second on the throw home. Arenado was originally called out. After a review the call was overturned, not because of a missed tag but because Carlos Ruiz the Phillies catcher was blocking the plate. Kind of an interesting call including the 2 new rules initiated this year.
For a few innings there was a squirrel running around the field first in the infield then the outfield. He was then chased into the fountain area by the batters eye in center field. I think he originally fell out of Charlie Blackmon’s beard but this can not be confirmed!
The Rockies did score 2 more runs in the 4th inning on a Justin (I am flying under the radar) Morneau home run. He has been very quietly hitting very well batting .333 with 3 home runs. He seems to be a very good addition to this team. I was worried at first but he seems to be replacing Todd very well at first and a great addition at the plate. (3-0) Rox
Lyles pitched into the 8th inning. He gave up 5 hits 1 run, striking out 2 and walking 1.
Lyles was replaced by Boone Logan. He did give up a hit scoring the 1 run that was charge to Lyles because he gave up a single to Cody Asche. Logan struck out Chase Utley to end the inning. (3-1) Rox.
LaTroy Hawkins pitched the 9th for the save. His 4th of the year. Jordan Lyles got the win and player of the game. It was Lyles 3 win of the year. This game brought the Rockies to a 10-9 record and brought them over .500. This was also the first time I have seen a Rockies pitcher start the 8th inning in a while.
Dominic Brown flew out to center to end the game.
This game I did not take many photos as you could probably tell by the lack of photos. The Squirrel was probably the only photo I got of anything running up the line toward first base till that point in the game.
That is it for this one. I will be at Coors the whole road stand so see you there!
Also this is my 300th post on MLBlogs thanks to everyone who follows me and checks in on the blog.
White Sox Vs. Rockies
Game 3 of series
My 6th Game at Coors.
Today being a day game there was no batting practice, but it does mean an opportunity to get some autographs when the pitchers do there work out. I was able to get Brett Anderson and Adam Ottavino on my team project and an additional 8×10 of Anderson I took at spring training. Before the game I also had Charlie Blackmon sign a 8×10 of his head first dive into first on Sunday.
Juan Nicasio was the starting pitcher for the Rockies today this is his second start of the season coming of his home opener win on Friday. He started this game well with a ground ball out to second by Adam Eaton. Marcus Semien flew out to left for the second out and Jose Abreu hit a double but was left on base when Dayan Viciedo struck out to end the inning.
It was the Rockies turn to bat and 1st. base coach and former Rockies player Eric Young gave high fives to the fans in the first row as he has been doing before the bottom of the first all week. 21 Years ago today he hit a lead off homerun in the Rockies home game in Mile High Stadium in front of a record crowd for a baseball game 80227 fans. The Rockies won that game against the Expos 11-4. Bryn Smith was the winning pitcher and it was the 1st. win in franchise history.
Erik Johnson was the starting pitcher for the White Sox.
Charlie Blackmon started the game off like only he can with a triple to center field.
This was his first triple of the year to go along with his 16 hits 3 double and home run he has hit in the last week, can’t forget his 8 RBI’s and .471 batting average.
Blackmon would score on a Carlos Gonzalez single to give the Rockies a 1-0 lead.
Nicasio would have a rough inning in the second after getting Conor Gillespie to ground out. he then walked Jose Garcia and Alexi Ramirez hit a double.
Charlie Culberson dive after Alexi Ramirez’s double.
Trying to tag him out at second.
A Tyler Flowers single scored Garcia to tie the game at 1. The White Sox would take the lead 2-1 a few batter’s later when Ramirez scored on a Adam Eaton single.
In the second D.J. LeMahieu hit a single with 1 out and scored on a Charlie Blackmon single to tie the game at 2.
Blackmon and Eric Young at first after the game tying single.
Wilin Rosario take a big swing in the third for a fly out to right.
Carlos Gonzalez dives back to first after the Rosario out.
Cargo scored on a Nolan Arenado single to get the lead back 3-2.
The White Sox would once again take the lead in the 5th inning when Gillaspie hit a single scoring Eaton and Semien. The Rockies went down in order in the fifth. Matt Belisle pitched the 6th for the Rockies and worked very quick and efficiently. During one at bat he was throwing a pitch about every 10 seconds. He got a quick 3 outs all ground ball outs on 12 pitches.
Justin Morneau started the 6th with triple.
He scored on a D.J. LeMahieu double to right field.
On the play Avisail Garcia was hurt diving for the ball it looked like he caught it. But he must of lost control of the ball after hitting the ground it looked like he may have dislocated his shoulder and he was taken out of the game.
Adam Ottavino pitched the 7th for the Rockies and also had a very good inning siting down the White Sox in order on only 6 pitches including 3 to strike out Marcus Semien on 3 pitches.
The Rockies broke the tie in a big way here is Nolan Arenado scoring the second Rockies run in the 8th inning.
Stubbs (Came into game to pinch run for Morneau) and Arenado both scored on this D.J. LeMahieu double. Morneau lead the inning off with a single.
Josh Rutledge made his MLB debut for the year in the inning hitting a single to score D.J. He was called up today and Wilton Lopez was sent to Colorado Springs.
Michael Cuddyer slides into home after a Carlos Gonzalez double which he and Blackmon singled. Rutledge scored on a Cuddyer single. The Rockies took a 10-4 lead.
LaTroy Hawkins came in and pitched to 2 batters in the 9th.
Boone Logan made his Coors Debut pitching to the White Sox Paul Konerko.
Konerko grounded out to second to end the game.
The Rockies won this game 10-4 D.J. LeMahieu was the player of the game going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI’s Charlie Blackmon went 3 for 5 with 1 RBI.
Rex Brothers who pitched the last 2 outs in the 8th inning got the win.
That is it for the first home series of the year the Rockies went 4-2 on this home stand and have a 5-5 record heading to San Francisco and San Diego on this road trip and will be back next Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
That is it for this one it has been great to be back at Coors.
Thanks, Jared for the title Idea!
