After Christian Friedrich was staked to a 2-0 lead after one inning, the Rox suddenly played Little League ball allowing the Brewers to score eight runs in the second and third innings. Almost all of them were preventable had the Rockies played their usual stout defense. Finish my story in the comments below as I wrote this post game report after just three innings. New day tomorrow, might we have the same old story?
The entire day summed up on one play: Bases loaded by the Brewers; Milwaukee pitcher Peralta at plate with two outs and two strikes; Friedrich throws a WP (or was it passed ball by McKenry?); ball hit brick wall and came back to McKenry’s right; McKenry picks up and throws to the late arriving Friedrich – wild throw, another runner score on the error; while McKenry was bent over in a bit of pain standing right at the plate and Friedrich took a nap with the ball in his mitt ten feet from the plate; third runner raced home beating Friedrich. End result – 3 runners scored on one wild pitch.
