The game was nothing to write home about when the Rockies let the Padres rally to tie the game at 9-9. Matt Belisle came on to finish the last two innings before Nolan Arenado walked off with a home run to deep left off Joe Thatcher.
Need I detail how the rest of the fugly game unfolded leading up to the walk off? Arizona beat the Gnats tonight and the Rockies remain 2 1/2 back in the NL West while Panda and his teammates are struggling with their weights dropping to third 3 1/2 games out.
There will likely be some moves made before the game tomorrow with a couple of minor injuries to two of the four outfielders. Will we see Tyler Colvin come up the I-25 to spare one of the outfielders? EYJ probably will get yet another start due to lack of OF depth tomorrow. Jeff Francis is likely to come off the DL for a spot start in place of Tyler Chatwood. Rob Scahill’s performance tonight probably has him on the bus going south passing Colvin’s bus going north.
