Rockies drop finale in NY, “Q” tests positive…

The Rockies finish another road trip under .500 though not anywhere near as bad as the previous 2-9 roadtrip. Johan Santana threw a complete game 4 hit shutout, with 10 strikeouts. Again too many times this roadtrip where the bats have been on silence. Troy Tulowitzki was the only Rockies player with multiple hits on the afternoon. Spilborghs and Olivo both led the team in striking out 2 times each today. Dexter Fowler was the only Rockies player to draw any walks, drawing two on the day. Jason Hammel didnt give his best effort, but still 4 runs over 7 innings, isnt a horrbile day at the office. What makes it worse than horrible is when your teammates cant make contact with the ball and put runs on the board. The Rockies head home for a 3 game homestand against the Brewers who will make their second trip to Coors Field this season.

EXTRA BASES – Troy Renck of the Denver Post has a quick article on Omar Quintanilla apologizing for having tested positive for a banned substance and will be currently serving a 50 game suspension. Story here.
