The Morales/Lopez apologists won’t find much in the way of argument ammo after a completely dismal showing Tuesday night at Coors field. The team came into the game with visions of a second series win within their grasp, only to watch as Rockies pitching looked like they were applying for the home run derby staff as opposed to actual major league pitchers.
Morales gave up six runs on eight hits over six and a third while Lopez unbelievably MATCHED that feat in just two-thirds of an inning. Morales gave up two long balls over his innings, where Lopez bested him, giving up three.
Now that takes skill.
The White Sox pitcher, Quintana, on the other hand was spectacular. He went seven innings only giving up two runs. One of those came off a Cuddy solo-shot to left-center.
Tyler Chatwood, who is quickly rehabbing from his ill-advised triple at the end spring training, pitched extremely well for CS. He pitched a rehab game and struck out eight over 6 1/3.
