Today's Rockies news and notes

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Rain douses Rockies vs. Giants game in sixth -

Yesterday was a lousy game all the way around. Rain halted play twice, forcing Jorge De La Rosa out despite not giving up a hit. The Rockies left a battalion of runners on base, so this one should have been a rain-shortened victory, not a reschedule. Play will resume when the Giants return to Coors in September, in what could be a crucial series.

I couldn't believe I was hearing that when Tulo blooped that hit into right field. I'm glad they have a sense of humor about the whole thing.

This has been a bizarre saga alright. Apparently the ball club frowns on biting off chunks of a teammate's ear.
