Rockies take one of three on road from below average team. Fans mildly amused.

Colorado Rockies fans decided not to have a parade to celebrate Sunday's road win, instead deciding to wait for a road victory from a slightly better team. Despite holding out for a close four to three victory over the Pirates, only their third of the season, Rockies fans decided this one wasn't quite worthy of the ticker tape celebration as the last two as they stranded several runners, and since it was against the Pirates, a team that they felt they should have won against anyway. Joe Kennedy went eight and a third innings pitched a nice game, Brad Hawpe and Matt Holliday had two hits apiece and Garrett Atkins, JD Closser and Todd Helton each got on a couple of times also aiding the cause, but the celebration will occur another day.
