Okay, remember how this morning in regards to the bottom of our lineup how I said it would be important to monitor whether luck swings our way early or not? Well, today we saw an excellent case in point of luck swinging our way, even if it had nothing to do with the bottom of our lineup. When today's game was suspended in the bottom of the third inning with the Cardinals already ahead 5-1, they had an 89% chance of winning according to Fangraphs. While they might be favored tomorrow against Kip Wells, their chances of winning will certainly be lower than the nine to one odds we left them with today. The rain essentially came up with a grand slam for us, erasing a four run deficit so Holliday, Tulo and company didn't have to. Let's hope the first three innings of tomorrow night tell a different story.
Both the Dodgers and Diamondbacks looked solid this afternoon, the Rockies will need to do better at showing they belong in the same picture as we repeat Day One tomorrow.
