Helton destroyed Reds
31.8.2013 Jan Jabrocky 0 Comments
What a night for Todd Helton. Did you see it? He was 2-for-5 tonight. Both hits was 3-run homers and Todd had 6 RBI. Last time he had 2 homers in one game it was in April 26, 2011 against Cubs. It was his second game in career with 6 RBI (his best). Last one was 10 years ago vs. Dodgers (29/5/2003). Todd has now 2499 hits and we can accept that next game will be sold out. Rockies fans have to see this moment.
Rockies offense was amazing tonight. Rockies had 19 hits and scored 9 runs. Wilin Rosario was great again. He was 4-for-5. Tulo and Blackmon followed him with 3 hits. 2 RBI had Culberson.
De La Rosa pitched 6 innings and allowed 8 hits and 3 runs. He has now 15 wins. Jeff Francis pitched in ninth inning and he struggled again. He allowed 3 hits and 3 runs. Fortunatelly Reds need 3 runs more to tie the game.
Rockies won first game of this series and I hope that Coors Field will be full of attendance and Rockies will win next game and series against Reds. Don´t forget they will play at 2:10 Central European time.
