Game #50: Buchholz vs. Lowry

New, comments

Rox Girl covered this duel in yesterday's game thread:

Buchholz vs Lowry is probably our smallest chance of winning over the coming week, but even that one's got a decent shot. Looking at the ERA's might leave you feeling skeptical of that claim, but both Lowry and Morris are thriving this season by luck more than skill, with abnormally low BABIP's against them. Fielding independent pitching stats peg their expected run rates in the mid 4's, rather than the 2 point somethings they're putting up this year. That will gradually flatten out, and it wouldn't surprise me at all when some team will break out some heavy lumber against these two. Might as well be us.
No matter the outcome of the game, it'll still be far more entertaining than that race today which has cars going around a track for hours on end.

Go Rockies!
