Game Wrap: Uh, well that didn't go so well

Wait, what? - Stephen Dunn

The Rockies' offense sputtered, Drew Pomeranz was wild, and Chavez Ravine was not kind to the boys in purple

It was a bad night at Dodger stadium to be a Rockies fan as the offense failed to show up, despite the presence of the A lineup, and the starting pitching was again woeful.

Drew Pomeranz walked five and gave up seven hits in his four innings of work, which is obviously completely unacceptable. That kind of wildness and inconsistency will always lead to big innings, and Drew was bitten in the fourth inning when he walked the bases full. Mark Ellis cashed in with a single, and that brought the score to 3-0, which felt like 20 to 0.

The return of Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler was less than auspicious, as the two both went 0 for 4. Tulowitzki had three strikeouts to his name, an uncommon sight when he's at his best. Hopefully that's just the rust shaking off.

The lone bright spot on the night was Carlos Gonzalez, who went 3 for 4 with a home run in the 9th inning. It's nice to see the erstwhile home run derby participant crank one out of the park, but it obviously wasn't enough.

This was a game that the Rockies had a good chance of winning on paper, as Chris Capuano is the least intimidating pitcher the Dodgers will be employing during this four game set. To see him shut down the Rockies' best lineup is extremely discouraging. The Rocks will have to bring their A game tomorrow, as All-Star Clayton Kershaw takes the hill for the Dodgers.
