Cardinals 6, Rockies 1: St. Louis' Five-Run Sixth Inning Dooms Colorado

Carlos Gonzalez homered and Aaron Cook was strong through five innings, but the Rockies only had five hits and Cook fell apart in the sixth, breaking open a tie game and eventually giving the Cardinals a 6-1 victory.

Albert Pujols and David Freese each had two hits, while Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman had key doubles. There wasn't a ton of offense in this game outside of that fateful inning, but even then the Cards had more of it than the Rockies as Kyle Lohse kept them at bay by tossing 6.1 innings of one-run ball, giving up just four hits and three walks while collecting three punchouts. Meanwhile, Cook gave up six runs on nine hits in 5.2 innings. Edgmer Escalona was terrific in 2.1 innings of relief, as he held St. Louis hitless while striking out one and walking one. However, the Rockies couldn't muster anything offensively, so that was that.

55 - 65


Lost 3


The Rockies have fallen ten games under .500 for the first time in 2011. Not the place you want to be. 

No graph or Rowcall because I don't know how to use a Mac. Sorry. This game sucked anyway though, so whatever.
