The Colorado Rockies beat themselves plain and simple. Jorge De La Rosa walked the first two batters of the game and both scored on Matt Kemp’s triple. In the sixth inning De La Rosa again walked two batters back-to-back after giving up a towering concourse solo shot to Hanley Ramirez. Those two men who walked scored on Jamie Romak’s first career hit, a double off struggling Matt Belisle. On the next pitch, Romak came around on Miguel Rojas’ single. The score was 6-1 when the game was called mid-sixth due to rain and thunder. Troy Tulowitzski picked up Colorado’s only run of the game with a home run, his 17th of the season.
Please forgive me if the game resumes and the score is different. The Rockies’ only hope is if the game resumes they will see a fresh set of Dodgers’ pitchers for the final four innings and push the offense reset button. The Rockies would not mind making the Dodgers stick around until late Sunday to finish nine innings so they have a late night travel to the next city.
Colorado continues their home stand tomorrow for a four-game set against Atlanta Braves. Christian Bergmann will make his MLB debut when he takes the hill.
