Rockies Take Care of Business, Win 2 of 3

The Arizona Diamondbacks are almost an after thought these days.  The way they are playing, they should be thankful they are garnering any thoughts, even from yours truly.

Once again, a superior opponent, the NL Wild Card leaders in the Colorado Rockies, came to town and took care of their business, winning today 5-1 after winning last night 10-4, maintaining their wild-card lead.  Today, the victim was Dan Haren.  He fell to 14-9 and his ERA jumped to 2.90.  Definitely one disappointment among several today.

Other disappointments:

  • Mark Reynolds saw his average drop to .266.  He had reached the .280′s at one point.
  • The only RBI today was from the pitcher, Dan Haren.  Same thing happened the other night too.
  • Dbacks were only 1-6 with runners in scoring position today.

Six home games left.  Does anyone care?
