Long Balls Sink Rockies

First pitch of the game thrown by Christian Friedrich – home run by Ricky Weeks.  Later in the same inning, two-run shot by Aramis Ramirez.  Ryan Wheeler – grand slam to give Rockies 4-3 lead.  Friedrich gives up two more runs in fifth inning despite a valiant effort by Rob Scahill to get out of the mess unscathed.  Corey Dickerson struck out on a pitch that was a mile off the plate with the bases loaded and two outs to let the Brew Crew keep the lead at 5-4.  Thomas Kahnle gives up a two-run homer to a pinch hitter in the 8th inning for a 7-4 final.  How many home runs has the pitching staff given up to opposing pitchers, pinch hitters, guys with less than 5 career HRs, and 8-hole hitter?????

Dickerson’s SO was so pathetic. The lack of having any LH pitching in AAA seems to be a problem for our call-ups. Oh wait, you say there are LH pitchers playing in AAA????

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
