Pomeranz debut a dud, Rockies fall 5-2

The season debut of Drew Pomeranz did not go as planned for the Rockies on Sunday. Pomeranz struggled with control and needed 92 pitches to get through 4.1 innings while the Rockies offense was stymied by Madison Bumgarner.


Drew Pomeranz was not able to deliver the season debut that the Rockies had hoped for. Pomeranz struggled with his command and worked just 4.1 innings with four walks and seven hits, allowing four runs. Even if Pomeranz had pitched better the Rockies still may have found themselves on the losing end of this one.

The offense was held almost completely in check by Giants starter Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner pitched seven innings and gave up just one run on a Carlos Gonzalez home run in the sixth inning. For Gonzalez, it was his league leading 22nd home run, but the Rockies mustered little else against Bumgarner.

In the first inning the Rockies had runners on first and third with nobody out, but they were unable to capitalize and Bumgarner cruised the rest of the afternoon. There were few offensive bright spots for the Rockies today, but Michael Cuddyer was able to extend his franchise best hitting streak to 27 games with an eighth inning single in his final at bat of the day. Wilin Rosario doubled home Cuddyer to make the score 5-2, but Nolan Arenado struck out to end the threat.

Still, winning two of three against the Giants is a solid series and with the Diamondbacks and Padres both losing, the Rockies didn't lose any ground in the division. The Rockies finished June with a 13-15 record.
