Giancarlo Stanton stepped to the plate wearing the Golden Sombrero and came around the bases sans this hat. His three-run shot off Chris Rusin in the first inning turned the Rockies into a bunch of zombies. The Rockies recorded just five hits for the night, four of them between Deej and Corey Dickerson.
The Rockies signed the Declaration of Altitude after the game promising to score two runs or less per game away from Coors for the rest of the year. The only way to win the road games from now on is to have the pitching staff have a 0.25 ERA the rest of the season.
Like clockwork, it is a rainy and gloomy day in Denver that goes hand in hand with Colorado’s offense. Forget about chasing Cy Urema by the end of fourth inning tonight. Instead they are hitting the showers themselves, and a very cold one.
I’m still in sdcarp’s front row seat of his luxurious bandwagon. With a seat belt on. Destination: chalkboard in Bob in WV’s classroom. We know what to write. 🙂
