Hitting Missing Against Dodgers

Empty swings and excellent plays kept the Rockies at bay Friday night at Dodger Stadium. The one and only bright spot came in the top of the 7th as Michael Cuddyer deposited a souvenir into the center field seats, effectively ending Chris Capuano’s scoreless streak at 24 and 2/3 innings. Capuano had the last laugh and the win as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers 7-3.

After a home run by Mark Ellis in the first, Jamie Moyer seemed like he had a handle on things, going quickly through the next two innings without much of an issue. A season high seven strikeouts couldn’t overcome the troubles of the fifth as Moyer gave up a lead-off single to Loney, a single to Treanor and a two out two run double to Mark Ellis. After intentionally walking Matt Kemp he watched as Ethier made him pay sending a line drive single Cuddyers way and plating Ellis in the process.

Mark Ellis again made the Rockies his own personal batting practice going 2 for 3 with 3 RBI’s.

Despite Jamie starting to show his age,the runs given up by the bullpen are what keep this from being a competitive game when the offense finally woke up.

I am out of town and thankfully missed the game so my comments on last night’s game are based on the box score only. I’ve been bonding with my grandson shooting hoops and watching whatever sporting event is on TV which so far has been basketball and (ugh) soccer. Tonight it will be hockey, soccer (again) and basketball which will be on much too late. Somebody above mentioned that the blame for last night’s loss shouldn’t be Moyer but the… Read more »

Off topic: It seems to me that it would not be a stretch that by the second half of next year, the Rockies could have the following starting pitchers available to them: Pomeranz, White, Friedrich, Nicasio, Chacin, DLR, Cabrera, and Bettis. Obviously, that’s more than a rotation’s worth, but that would be a good place to be and a far cry from where we sit right now. That could be a pretty good rotation, and pretty inexpensive, leaving money for… Read more »

It has become painfully apparent that the ROCKIES CAN NOT HIT! The players have not bought into the team theory of playing baseball. When you see Tulo come to the plate and time after time pop up on the first pitch, you know he is trying to crush the ball. Swinging for a single will get the job done many times and leave the team in a much better position to continue the inning.
