Rockies Attempt to Heat Up in Desert

The pitching staff continued to keep the team in the game last night surrendering only three runs, but the hitters failed to support their pitchers.  Tonight Juan Nicasio will attempt to keep the Snakes from biting us in the rears.  The lineup tonight is similar to Opening Day except that Reid Brignac takes the place of Josh Rutledge at second base.

The season record away from Coors Field now stands at 5-5.  The remainder of the road trip has two critical components of a successful season – playing in NL West parks where we historically have poor record and playing against divisional opponents.  If the Rockies don’t clean up on intra-divisional road trips, they are in for a long season.  The game starts at 7:40pm and is being aired on both ROOT television and KOA 850 AM as usual.

Personally I would have sat CarGo to get the head clear. EYJr has arguably been the best player the past few days…which corresponds to the current 1-4 record. When Jr is.your best player your in trouble.

Interestingly.they have given Nicasio a good defense. The team needs him to go out and help them win.

Prediction for the night – either Nelson, Brigniac or Pacheco hits first homer of the season.

Big game. It may not sound like a lofty goal, but I’ll take 3-4 on this road trip.

Really fun homestand starts after the west coast swing with the Rays and Yanks visiting Coors. Lets hope we come back home not totally demoralized from a bad road trip.
