So May didn't quite get off to the start we could have hoped for. Anyway, from Troy Renck's recap:
"I think we needed to find a way to level up the top with the bottom of the lineup," manager Clint Hurdle said. "We'll just keep trying keys to unlock the offense."
Yeah, it's got to be one of them right? I think he's getting closer with last night's lineup, and the six runs scored are sort of indicative of that. Obviously our major issues were on the side of run prevention, however. I've come around to agreement with the opinion that Corpas might need to follow Morales to extended Spring in Tucson for some work to sort things out one on one, as last night was just brutal to watch. Other than that, credit should be given to the Dodgers hitters, as our pitchers weren't terrible, they just got smacked around a bit.
I'm going to be in Chicago tonight, so I won't be able to witness Jorge De La Rosa's Rockies debut. Let's just hope the bats can muster a little more against the dreaded Esteban Loaiza and his 83 mph heat than they did last time.
