The Colorado Rockies playoff hopes are disappearing before our eyes. Fortunately, they haven’t disappeared as quickly as the Rockies offense has. Against a team that they absolutely needed to beat up on, the Rockies dropped a dud Friday night in San Diego. While Antonio Senzatela kept the team in the game in his start, the offense never could find first gear and the bullpen struggled to get outs.
Lone bright note
While Kyle Freeland, Jon Gray and German Marquez have been dominant of late, the Rockies other starting pitchers have struggled. Tonight, however, Senzatela put together a strong start and was deserving of a much better outcome after making only one mistake in six innings of work.
Senzatela struck out four, walked only one and allowed a solo home run which was all the offense the Padres would need.
That was bad
Everything else. The offense can’t get an extra base hit or score a run when Wil Myers doesn’t make 2 errors in the same inning. The bullpen took a close game where one good swing changes the complexion of the game and turned it into one where the Rockies might as well let the Denver Broncos try score a touchdown in a major league game to tie as score seven runs in a single inning.
Sleep, sweet sleep. Hopefully tomorrow’s game will be better, but I’m losing faith that it will be.
