By winning in a locale that has given us recent misery the Rockies made a strong statement, according to Tracy Ringolsby. Last season, if you recall, the Rox sandwiched the All-Star game around their worst losing stretch of the season, being swept by Arizona at home and then opening with a dud (and another series sweep) of a road trip in Cincinnati. Considering the results of our last road trip this season, we definitely needed to start this one off with a game like last night. Let's continue like this, please.
In the RMN's notes section, we learn of Clint Hurdle's confidence in Manny Corpas in closer situations. Funny, I seem to remember him saying something different at the start of the season. There's also a note on fifth round pick Connor Graham signing, and he'll report to Tri-City.
