It should have been a turn around game for a team that plays well at home against a team that plays horribly on the road.
But, it ended up another terrible outing in a string of terrible outings, as the Rockies lost to the Huston Astros 6-3. All three runs came via Tulo who hit two home runs and an RBI double. Tulo was 3-4 on the day and Cuddy was 3-5.
And that was pretty much it as far as offense went. Again, RISP was an issue (1-8) and CarGo, Arenado, LeMahieu and Rosario were a combined 0-15.
Chatwood did an admirable job on the mound, going six innings, allowing two runs on four hits. His 10 strikeouts was a team high and he left the game with the score tied 2-2. Escalona gave up a run and Brothers kept it close, but in the ninth the latest member of the team, Scahill, pull the wheels off with his horrible pitching: 1ip, 4h, 3r and 1HR. What could have been a close game in the bottom of the ninth (3-2) became an almost insurmountable mountain at 6-2.
The Rockies that knew how to hit might have scaled it. The current iteration, not so much.
