In a regretful turn of events, the Rockies-Mets game was postponed tonight given the fact that it rains a whole bunch in New York. I blame Mookie Wilson.

Comment of the night:
Is TBA really stretched out enough to throw 18 innings?
Deep in our hearts, we all know that Esmil Rogers and Jon Niese battled it out for 4 scoreless innings until the Rockies finally got to Niese on a Smith double that he came around to score on thanks to a Gonzalez triple, and then a Tulowitzki bomb. Lindstrom and Reynolds hold the lead for the 8th and the 9th thanks to 7 powerful innings of 1-run ball by Rogers (Lindstrom with the save).
