Game Wrap: Diamondbacks 3, Rockies 2

Christian Petersen

Missed opportunities were the name of the game Saturday night for the Rockies. The Rockies failed to score a run off Arizona starter Wade Miley despite walking seven times. On the night they were 1-9 with RISP.

Jeff Francis did his job, the bullpen did their job, but the Rockies' offense did not.

The Rockies produced just two runs on the night and ultimately lost 3-2 in ten innings Saturday night. A disappointing loss for a team who will now be looking to split the four game set with the Snakes tomorrow. The Rockies walked four times in the first inning and seven times overall, but could not produce a run off of Miley. Carlos Gonzalez, who is really slumping now, grounded into a double play in the first and Wilin Rosario struck out with the bases loaded to allow Miley to escape.

In the 5th the Rockies loaded the bases again only to see Cuddyer ground into an inning ending double play. The Rockies had chances, but for whatever reason could not capitalize. The Rockies also ran into a few outs. Cuddyer was picked off of second in the eighth after he and Rosario hit back-to-back singles to start the frame. Rosario moved to second on the play and was doubled off second when Rutledge lined one to right and Rosario badly misread the ball.

The game ended in the tenth on a sacrifice fly to deep left center off the bat of Cody Ross, but the winning run was at third because of a throwing error on Rosario when A.J. Pollock was attempting to steal second.

This was a game the Rockies should have broken open early. They didn't, and those types of things always come back to bite you.
