There was nothing to watch yesterday for the third time in as many days. The Rockies were trounced by Bosox 10-3 with Chad Bettis giving up the early runs and Chad Qualls giving up three in the eighth. Before the game, Jason Motte was activated and Boone Logan was put on the DL retroactive to May 18th.
Jon Gray still has issues pitching in the first inning. Tonight, he gave up a two-run blast to Big Papi naturally. Over the first two innings the Rockies have not squared up any balls against Clay Buchholz. Six up and six down and Buchholz is on the way to pitching a perfect game. Colorado needs to win tonight to salvage a 3-6 road trip, else it’s a terrible 2-7 trip. The good news is that there will be no more trips longer than six games the rest of the season.
