Dexter Fowler. Let me count the ways you were awesome tonight:
- Walk-off triple in the bottom of the 10th for a 7-6 victory.
- Leadoff home run in the bottom of the first inning.
- Run-scoring walk in the fourth.
- 4-for-4, 3R, 3 RBI, a double short of the cycle.
Pretty sure Fowler's bought some more time at the top of the lineup with his 7-for-9, five-runs scored and three-RBI Memorial Day performance.Alex White wound up allowing six runs, including four of them on three home runs. He made it through five innings before things went to the bullpen. Josh Outman, Adam Ottavino, Matt Belisle, Rafael Betancourt and Josh Roenicke (1-0) kept the Astros in check over the remainder of the game.
The Rockies are assured of a split in this series, but they won't take the field again until Wednesday.
