The Rockies will be in San Diego for the next three before the final series against the Dodgers heading into the All Star Break. After an extremely dismal weekend series in Arizona, one that saw the Rockies completely lose any and all concept of hitting, the team is really hoping for a bounce-back from their good ol’ punching bag Padres.
The team announced they were placing Roy Oswalt on the 15-day DL with a left hamstring strain. Oswalt’s hamstring most likely couldn’t bear to watch another beating and decided to shut down in Sunday’s embarrassing 6-1 loss. The team COMBINED for only two runs and 12 hits in the whole series!!! They were outscored by 21 hits and 20 runs by the snakes.
With Oswalt on the DL the team called up Charlie Blackmon for his second shot at making the team this season. His first opportunity came at the end of may and only lasted 12 games. He had a forgettable line of: .240 .269 .360 and was quickly sent down to work on his swing. He was hitting .288 with 40 RBI’s in 68 games, but again, it was Triple-A.
Tyler Chatwood will be on the mound for the Rox and he will face Edinson Volquez.
