It looked like it would be a pitchers duel with our guy out of bullets and their guy firing a double-barrel. Five innings in and the only clear message came from Haren, one to the beat of “Can’t Touch This.”
And then Tyler Colvin stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the fifth and the script changed. The new script read:
- Rosario Walk
- Colvin HR (right over the head of our boy RHM)
- Pacheco Single
- Fowler Double
- CarGo HR
- Tulo Single
- Helton Single
Not bad when the Rockies had exactly two hits going into the fifth. Cargo was done with the bat, going 1-5, but Colvin wasn’t ready to pack it in. He went 2-4 with his other hit an HR in the 8th. It was a two run shot to left field.
Every one of the starters got at least one hit, but none more than two. Even EYj went 1 for 1 coming in to pinch hit for Lopez in the eighth.
As far as pitching went it wasn’t Chacin’s night. He went five innings on 95 pitches and gave up two-runs on seven-hits. He did get the win, thanks to Colvin. The rest of the pitching was pretty clean with Corpas, Outman, Lopez and Scahill combining to allow only 1 run on 1 hit for the last four. Scahill even had a monster catch at a line-drive up the middle.
