Clint Barmes, after Monday's win:
"It's good for us to be home and have a long homestand at this point," said shortstop Clint Barmes, who got the Rockies' scoring started with a leadoff home run in the fourth, extending his hitting streak to 12 games. "We played a lot on the road early. I'm not using that as an excuse, but I will say it's good to play at home for awhile. We have a lot of guys who do well here."
Clint Hurdle today:
“We probably need to get away, take a breather mentally more than anything else,” Hurdle said. “It’s tough sledding right now; there’s no other way to put it.”
