I'd love to be able to claim that the predictability of this game put me to sleep, but I'm pretty sure it also had something to do with the painkillers I took.
Either way, it looks like I didn't miss much.
The Colorado Rockies lost another baseball game by being just not quite good enough in all aspects of play. Starting pitcher Jorge de la Rosa ended with a fine enough line: 6.0 IP, 7H, 4ER, 3BB, 5K but was outdueled by Chase Anderson who tossed six innings, allowing just one run, and striking out eight.
Nolan Reimold's home run to lead off the seventh inning chased JDLR from the game, but "relief pitching" is an oxymoron on this team.
Matt Belisle came into the game and promptly gave up hits to Ender Inciarte, and Aaron Hill, and Mark Trumbo to bring the innings total to four runs for the Diamondbacks.
Charlie Blackmon had the only multi-hit day for the Rockies who tallied seven total, and scored the first run for the purplers in the fourth with a solo home run.
The onler other time the Rockies managed to cross home plate was in a too-little-too-late rally that came up short in the ninth inning. With one out, Corey Dickerson walked and Brandon Barnes doubled to give the Rox two players in scoring position.
Charlie Culberson plated Dickerson on a sac fly but then Jackson Williams grounded out to finish the game.
