Rockies’ pitcher German Marquez has been touted as the most successful Rockies pitcher. However, he got absolutely lit up by the Giants, giving up 11 runs in the 19-2 loss Monday afternoon. It got to the point where it was harder to watch than to just turn off the TV. And not watching doesn’t mean you’re not a true fan. If there’s no enjoyment, and there’s not in a 19-2 loss, then watching is just discouraging. So tune in next time and hope that it goes better tomorrow.
Daniel Murphy joins the list of Rockies players getting awarded Player of the Week, getting the nod for the National League. In the three games following the All-Star break, Murphy hit 8-12, going 4-4 in a game against Cincinnati. He also got home runs in back-to-back games at Coors Field, overcoming some earlier struggles at home.
On the Farm
Elliot Soto had a solid game in the Isotopes offensive success against Fresno. He garnered a run off of two hits, as did third baseman Josh Fuentes. The defense played well, too, giving up just two runs on 11 hits. Pitcher Chris Rusin started, allowing three hits but no runs. Nelson Gonzalez got the win, though, giving him a 2-0 record this season.
