The Rockies helped Tyler Skaggs deliver a performance in which he lived up to his hype. Over 8 innings, he allowed only 3 hits to Nolan Arenado, Michael Cuddyer, and Corey Dickerson. He struck out five batters and walked only one. If you missed last night's game, just watch this. His curveball looked absolutely devastating tonight. It is hard to put the Rockies offense or the loss of three of their top hitters at fault when it is against a pitcher who was on like Skaggs was tonight.
For his part, Jorge De La Rosa pitched a good performance that could have been winnable. It wasn't his best outing, but he again demonstrated the consistency that we have come to expect of him this year. He allowed three runs on seven hits, with no walks.
It was an emotionally intense night, as the fallen firefighters from Prescott, Arizona were honored before the ceremony. It isn't fun to lose baseball games, but if you're going to lose this is the type of event where you don't mind as much.
