31 - 32


Won 3


Seriously though, if we can forget about the 9th inning snafu (PH homer by Matt Kemp, bunch of base hits on pitches that shouldn't have been hit anywhere out of the infield, throwing error on Chris Nelson which Helton was inexplicably absent to scoop), this was a great game for the Rockies

After a massive come from behind win yesterday that resulted in a 9-7 win, the Rockies pounded Chad Billingsley for 6 runs in 5 innings of work, which was just excellent to see. As I noted in the original game thread post, the Rockies have hit Bills for nearly a 5 ERA before tonight's game, and they just kept punishing him for being the man he is in tonight's victory.

Chacin was up to his usual antics, you know, 9K, 3BB, 8IP, 3H. No biggie.

This leadoff thing is starting to get Cargo back into some sort of groove, as he went 4-for-5 on his bobblehead night. Helton went 2-for-4 with a walk, Tulo went 2-for-4 with a homer, Wigginton went 2-for-4, Smith had a 2-RBI single, Nelson went 3-for-5 - lots of good things.

The Rockies aren't out of the woods yet, but they seem to have at least remembered that moss grows on the north side of trees. Maybe tomorrow they'll remember that they packed a compass, too, and will find their way back to .500.



I'm not gonna bother with the WPA heroes/zeroes tonight, as everyone was pretty positive and those who weren't weren't like "zomg -.457 WPA lol". I will, however say that Chacin was 34.6% of tonight's win.

SDcat09 was 4 posts shy of double centurion. Highest post count after GmoRocks' 117 was ddavis539 at a whopping 52 (tied with me!).

Apparently people have lives now or something.
