Rockies enter break with a win…
Third time’s a charm as the saying goes. The Rockies for the 3rd straight game had to rally from behind and this time they came out with a win, 8-7 over the Braves to even the series 2-2 and end their homestand with a record of 6-4. Brad Hawpe was the hero with his game winning RBI double securing the win and giving the Rockies a little momentum after the break when they face the Padres on Thursday to begin a 4 game series.
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT: “We definitely wanted to win this, especially against a team with a lot of good pitchers.” – Brad Hawpe
STAT OF THE GAME: Barmes, Smith and Hawpe collectively went 6 for 12 with 4 RBIs.
