Right now the Rockies are 5-4 on this road trip and 11-5 since the All Star break.
Six and four would be much better. Game four is in Florida and the Rockies need this win to break even in this set with the Marlins. Besides, I hate losing to the Marlins.
Valerio De Los Santos, I like this guy and wanted to see him succeed, but in the end he didn’t bring it when he needed to. In Saturdays game De Los Santos allowed three runs, walked five and gave up four hits in only four-innings. Clint Hurdle let him go after the game. Good Luck Valerio!
Welcome back Jeff Francis. Jeff has been on the DL for a while now with a shoulder injury.
Before Jeff was injured he was 3-7 with a 5.67 ERA in seventeen starts.
Jeff fits in nicely with the Rockies.
I hope his shoulder holds up and he can get back to last seasons level of performance.
Good Luck starting on Wednesday. Show’em what Canada is all aboot…eh!
Matt Holliday is flippin amazing. I can’t remember the last game in which he didn’t hit a homer. This is the second game against the Marlins this year that Matt has had hit two homers. Even with his valient effort last night, the Rockies couldn’t get the win over the Marlins.
They lost it 5-3.
The Rockies return home to Coors Field on Monday and begin the start of a ten game home stretch against the Nationals, Padres and D-Backs.
Right now the Rockies are twelve games back from .500 and this next home stretch could possibly, maybe slightly, without a doubt, take it to the bank, you bet your bippie, if all goes well, so they tell me, wheres the beef, straight up, ultimately make or break the Rockies.
Aaron Cook is the starting pitcher on Monday and that makes me feel good. He’s solid and hard to shake. Plus he has a cool nickname…Cookie
This year while pitching at Coors Field, Cook is 6-3 with a 3.43 ERA.
I’ll be at the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (my birthday) games..See you there.
