Tight game turns late as Rox can't slow Nats | rockies.com
Michael Taylor delivered a go-ahead single in the seventh, and Washington tacked on plenty of insurance late, propelling the Nationals to a 15-6 win over Colorado in Tuesday's series opener at Coors Field to end a six-game slide.
After Gonzalez Germen's spotless sixth inning, four Rockies relievers gave up nine runs and walked seven. In all, eight of the 10 batters the Rockies walked would score. Hale's first Major League start since July 4 was hardly the stuff of victory, but the work of the bullpen has become a critical issue.
Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Tuesday night's 15-6 loss to the Nationals with right knee inflammation. Gonzalez homered for two first-inning runs -- his fourth homer in as many games against the Nats this year, and his 24th homer since June 1 -- off Nats starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, then struck out in his next two at-bats. After striking out in the fifth, he didn't go into the field for the top of the sixth.
After losing 15-6 to the Washington Nationals, Colorado seems doomed to suffer more than 90 defeats for a second consecutive season under the direction of Weiss.
Luck can never be removed from baseball, and we’d be poorer if luck were removed from our analytical vocabulary about the game.
