Last Meeting Against Giants

TONIGHT: The Rockies will play the first game of this 4-game road series against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.  Tonight’s game is the fourth contest on a 7-game road trip at SD (1-2, 9/14-16) and at SF (9/17-20).  In a back-and-forth contest yesterday, the Rockies were defeated by the Padres 12-11 on a walk-off single in the 9th inning from Yonder Alonso.  Yesterday’s game included the Rockies taking a 5-1 lead followed by an 8-run 5th inning from the Padres to take an 11-5 lead.  The Rockies then tied the game in the 8th with a 6-run frame that included a grand slam from Josh Rutledge.  The loss gave Colorado a fourth-straight series loss.  The Rockies are currently in a stretch during which the club will play 14-of-17 games on the road from 9/3-20 (3-10) Colorado has just seven home games remaining in 2012.  Additionally, the Rockies will finish the 2012 season with 20 games in 20 days from 9/14-10/3 (1-2).  The Rockies are also in a stretch of 14-straight games vs. NL West opponents from 9/10-24 (2-4).  Colorado is 21-31 vs. NL West opponents in 2012.
