Rox Walked Off Last Night; Seek Salvage Today

Before the game yesterday, Colorado made two roster moves; Boone Logan and Wilin Rosario went on the DL while Jackson Williams and Christian Friedrich was recalled.  Last night the Rockies struggled to even get some base runners.  They were no-hit until the fifth inning when Corey Dickerson slugged his 20th homer into McCovey Cove to even the score at 1-1.  San Francisco got back ahead 2-1 when Nick Massett opened the can of worms with a walk to Angel Pagan after getting ahead 0-2.  And another walk.  Pinch hitter Buster Posey drove in a run with a single to left.  The Rockies caused a blown save by Santiago Casilla when Justin Morneau drove home Drews Stubbs after he got hit by pitch.  Then it was Posey again with a two-run walkoff homer off Juan Nicasio.  It looked like Nicasio made a good pitch trying to get the ball high and in on Buster’s hands.  Somehow Posey managed to get the barrel on the ball.

Jordan Lyles (6-1, 4.05) has a high hurdle to overcome when he faces Yusmeiro Petit (3-3, 3.59) today in an afternoon matinee.  Petit has not allowed a base runner in the last 12.1 innings. Jackson Williams makes his first career start after debuting last night as a catcher in the double switch.

Why didn’t Walt walk Posey since he has been on fire.The only runner who mattered was already in scoring position and a walk would have set up a force any where as well as taking the bat out out of Buster’s hands.I think Posey watched Nicascio climb the ladder to strike out the previous two batters and guessed he’d throw another high fastball.Not a bad pitch but the AT&T curse seems to be returning.
