All right, so Greg Reynolds's first start for the Rockies since July didn't go so well. You could say that's an understatement. Yesterday's start was quite like his one on July 4--incredibly forgettable. Yet, we know that the July 4 game had an incredibly remarkable ending. Not so much last night.
Back on June 12, Reynolds allowed eight runs on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings while facing the Giants. He had a Game Score of seven in that contest.
Reynolds has also been listening too much to Clint Hurdle since his return to the majors. Just read the following quote from the RMN's game report:
"There comes a time when there are no excuses," Reynolds said. "It's a matter of getting the job done. I felt really good. I felt good about giving the team a chance to win. That's why this (game) was more frustrating."
I'm sure I could go through post-game quotes from other games and find that Hurdle has said something like that several times this season. Reynolds probably isn't the only Rockie to say something like that. The guys need to come up with some new lines.
