Rockies pelt record book in 12-run eighth - Stats & Info Blog - ESPN
The Rockies set the following club records in last night's eighth inning barrage:

-Runs in an inning (12)
-Hits in an inning (13)
-Consecutive hits in an inning (11)
-Plate appearances in an inning (18)
-Extra-base hits in a game (12)

In addition, they also set and/or tied the following MLB records:

-Consecutive hits in an inning (11)
-Extra-base hits in an inning (8)

The Cards are now focuses on Cleveland's Jake Westbrook. In addition, two AL Central clubs have inquired on Brad Hawpe, but the Rox are reluctant to deal him because of their current first base conundrum. It looks as if the only guy left on the 25-man roster that could be dealt is Randy Flores, which would make room for Matt Reynolds to join the big league bullpen.
