Dodgers Walk Over Rockies 6-1

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.

Look at the bright side! If the game is called at this point, the score will revert to the score at the bottom of the 5th, which will make it a 2-1 loss! (we need to find silver linings where we can, right?) I know that DLR and Belisle will appreciate the ERA help!

So much for silver linings! The tarp is coming off. Maybe the Rox can light up the Dodgers bullpen. Maybe.

Or maybe I’m wrong about the scoring reverting since LAD led going into the 6th. Who cares. A loss is a loss is a loss.

I will bet that the outfield we started today was the fastest in baseball.Yet I don’t remember one attempt at a bunt for a base hit.EY was good for at least a couple of attempts per game as he realized how important it was to the team to be on base and that it was part of what he brought to the table.With his Dad as a coach I am mystified by how seldom Barnes and Stubbs try to lay… Read more »

Daniel Winkler, injured elbow, MRI coming … just an awful 10 days or so for Rockies fans. Christian Bergman tonight? Really, that’s what it’s come to? I hope he does well, and I always pull for the dark horse prospects. But a realistic take on it would be that this is a pitcher on the order of, say, Collin McHugh, the forgettable 2 or 3 starts guy last year who actually had a really nice run this year for the… Read more »

Fair enough Ag,and your 1-10 reasons are impeccably thought out and accurate as usual.Because of the second WC I think I agree the “fork”can wait but only if they right the ship.Really tough homestand with 3 division leaders coming to town.I’m surprised we haven’t been talking about Tulo’s MVP season unless we are all afraid of jinxing it/him.

are you serious? What is this, street ball? since when do you let the other team off the hook so they can catch a flight??? What, we WANT them rested for their next game so they win? Doesn’t WW understand that we want to not only beat the freaking dodgers, we want to demoralize them so they can’t play tomorrow as well??? Unbelievable…just unbelievable… i didn’t realize WW had the power to call the game – i thought it was… Read more »

k, it is the umpires that call it…

“Umpires nearly pulled the tarp and continued play. Not long after a resumption time was announced, the storm cell that had dumped rain on Coors Field backed up instead of moving out of the area. Umpires then called the game.”

i hadn’t heard Weiss called it so that shocked me if it was true…where did you hear he called it?

Well fellas, I must be the good luck charm for the Rox. I attended last Saturday’s game, which ended up being an amazing game. Would love to attend more games but it is a long drive from Lincoln, NE. Ran into a lovely hail storm/Tornado warning around Crook, CO. on my way to Denver.

Eddie Butler to the DL? Way to go Eddie! You’re acting like a Colorado Rockie already!

RMH – I’m not a Weiss fan either. I think he’s over his head and should go back to coaching HS ball. But I’m sure he has no say over whether (almost wrote weather) to call the game or not. Once it’s started it’s the crew chief’s call. He probably has input from the head groundskeeper and his bosses in NY but that’s it. Frankly I watched only bits and pieces of the game and once Belisle came in, I… Read more »
