Rockies Take Care of Business, Win 2 of 3

By Scott Allen

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?
