First win of the season
3.4.2014 Jan Jabrocky 0 Comments
After third game of the season we can celebrate first win of this season. Hopefully one of the many.
Jordan Lyles replaced tonight Chatwood in rotation. He had motivation to show he deserve spot in rotation. And he pitched well. During 5 innings allowed 4 runs, one homer and had 5 strike outs. Ottavino, Belisle and Brothers held the score to ninth inning. In 9th we could see Hawkins for the first time closing game. LaTroy had little issues, allowed 2 hits and one run, but after 36 pitches and 3 outs Rockies could celebrate for the first time this season.
Offense was really good tonight. Rcokies score more runs this game than in first two. Man of the game was Jordan Pacheco with 3-for-4. Cuddy and Blackmon with 2 hits and 1 RBI each followed him. Tulo still looking for better game. Only one hit and BA .147 in first three games is not enough. But it is still only start of the season and Tulo will improve every game. Unfortunatelly CarGo left the game in 6th inning. He was removed as a precaution after experiencing dizziness. Hopefully will be allright tomorrow.
