All you really need to know about today's game is this:
A good amount of that offense was courtesy of the wildness of Rockies starter Tyler Matzek, who walked a half dozen Diamondbacks in his two innings of work. Matzek threw 58 pitches before being pulled, just 20 of them for strikes. Three of the 20 srtikes from Matzek went for hits, including a two-run home run by Mark Trumbo. Matzek allowed four runs in his two innings.
The Rockies bullpen was not much better, as six Colorado relievers combined to allow nine runs (five earned) on 15 hits in seven innings. Why Walt Weiss deemed it necessary to use six relievers in a game that was 9-0 through four innings remains a mystery.
The Rockies offense did, however, show some signs of life, as Justin Morneau, Nick Hundley and Drew Stubbs each hit home runs against Diamondbacks starter Josh Collmenter. Hundley nearly hit a second home run, but left fielder caught his drive above the fence in left field in the fifth inning, turning a potential three-run homer into a sacrifice fly.
