I´m afraid that first game of season shown us what we can accept from this team. We will see good hits and outfield plays but we still have problem on the mound. Weiss and his team aren ´t wizards. They can´t made from average pitchers prefect pitchers. But bach to the game. Rockies started on mound with Chacin. If was somebody afraid how he will make it, must to be pleasantly surprised. Chacin played 6.2 innings and allowed only 1 run. Thanks to Tulo´s double HR and Cargos solo HR, led Rockies till 8th inning 3-1. But in the 8th inning pitched Lopez and everything went wrong. He allowed 4 hits and 3 runs and Brewers turned score. Rockies was under pressure and knew that they must to score to have chance for a win. After two quick outs nobody believed to miracle but Fowler hitted hard and tied the game with solo home run. Than Rex Brothers shown us good pitching skills and close 9 inning with 4-4 score.
I don´t want to write what happened in 10th inning. Ottavino gave Brewers two base on balls, after the mistake from Rutledge Brewers stollen one base and when the bases was loaded and Brewers had only one out, Lucroy hitted sacrified hit to center field and Brewers won 5-4.
Best player of Rockies: Troy Tulowitzki
