Not with a bang, but with a whimper.
That is how the Rockies season ended.
Colorado was thwaked by the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-5, which actually sounds closer than it really was.
Starting pitcher Christian Bergman did not fare well, giving up a whopping eight runs (seven earned) on eleven hits in just 5.1 innings. He gave up home runs to Matt Kemp and Adrian Gonzalez. But who hasn't?
Josh Rutledge was the hardest out at the plate for the Rockies, grabbing three hits. Charlie Blackmon's two were the only other marker of a multi-hit day for a Rockie.
Wilin Rosario ended the year on a positive offensive note, hitting his 13th home run of the season in this one.
Really, this game amounted to a nice warm-up for the Dodgers going into the payoffs and a reminder that the Rockies are a team with a whole lotta question marks.
The Dodgers threw up 16 hits on their way to 10 runs and their starter Zach Greinke had only one blip in the second and otherwise kept the Rockies offense completely off balance. He gave up only four hits in five innings.
But hey! Justin Morneau is you National League batting champion! So, that's something.
