The headline and photo says it all. Andrew McCutcheon hit three HRs for five RBI. David Freese and Starling Marte also had solo blasts. The Rockies lost for a lot of reasons. JDLR can’t go any further than three innings. The good news is that he is likely to get a much needed relief by injuring his groin busting up the line on a grounder.
Christian Bergman almost went three innings of shutout ball, but ran out of gas after 2.2 IP and giving up a three-run blast to Cutch. Gonzalez Germen gave up a solo shot but Gopherg did pitch two innings and ZERO gopher balls served.
Colorado offensively had a ton of chances to get back in the game but went just 1-7 in the RISP department. It didn’t help that the Rockies were using a Sunday lineup today. Might as well throw it away against Gerritt Cole.
I’m very glad that JDLR pitched tonight instead of tomorrow as I will be heading to Coors Field using that new A-train to get there. Jon Gray pitching which means he will be hunting strikeouts unlike any other Rox pitcher when in a difficult situation.
