Recapping the Rockies…
Since I’ve been away for a few days( I apologize), here’s a really brief recap of the Rockies over the weekend.
– Rox avoid the sweep in San Francisco winning the rubber match, 4-3.
– Rockies take the series in Arizona 2 games to 1, outscoring the D’backs 20-12 in 3 games.
– Jason Hammel wins his 9th of the season.
– Ubaldo Jimenez wins his 14th of the season.
– Troy Tulowitzki wins NL Player of the Week Award.
– Rox lead the NL Wildcard by 4 games going into tonight’s series opener against the Padres.
Now barring a swine flu outbreak in the Rockies clubhouse or a critical meltdown by the pitching or the hitting the Rockies should move into the playoffs as the wildcard without any problem. Tonight it’s Jorge De La Rosa (15-9, 4.17) taking the hill against the Padres Edward Mujica (3-4, 3.36).
