Rockies 5, Indians 0 - Aaron Cook's striking guys out and taking names

Today's 5-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians made the Colorado Rockies winners of their last five games. Much of this was due to the effort of today's starter: Aaron Cook. Big Red was on his game today, striking out seven and allowing only three hits. In Renck's recap of the game, Cookie had this to say:

"I was able to mix in my slider, curveball and changeup more. Usually, I will give up a hit on those pitches and go right back to my sinker. I had a good feel for the secondary pitches today," Cook said.

Give some dap today to Dexter Fowler (BB, triple, knee-high catch in center) and Dan Ortmeier (3-for-4, 2B, 1 RBI, 1 R, darting grab for an out).

We also had Manny Corpas pitch for the first time since returning from the World Baseball Classic. He struck out one in one inning of work. Jhoulys Chacin followed Corpas with two innings of one-hit ball, striking out two. He's enhancing his chances of starting the season with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox after every outing.

Troy Tulowitzki and Christian Colonel were the only starters who had O-fers. We're waiting for the mob to come out due to Tulo's lackluster bat so far.

Thanks goes out to Jabberwocky, Klingb00, RockiesDave, djmbluemoon, muzia02, Mondogarage, Poseidon's Fist, frightenedinmante#2, Rox Girl, Silverblood, PioneerSkies, AtkinsandTulofan, Hizilla, moomacher, Sandlotkid8, BlakeBomber, smokinRox, BaronBill, pierzynskirules, pedalpusher, Jester76, and FlyAway for joining in on the fun.
