Hey, I don't blame you. It's been a rough summer. Any glimmer of hope is welcomed here.
Of course this homestand will end after two more games, and then the Rockies will go on the road for nine division road games. But hey, they've taken care of business at home, which is also welcomed. Now if they can actually gain a little ground on that trip while climbing closer to .500, then you might be on to something.
It doesn't hurt that the teams they're chasing are the definition of bleh. But then again, the Rockies fit that description as well. With less pitching.
This one was over early. The offense came out firing against Brett Myers, plating six runs on six hits in the first. The inning included a number of quality plate appearances, beginning with Eric Young's leadoff walk, and concluding with yes, a two-run double from Jhoulys Chacin.
In between Dexter Fowler doubled, Carlos Gonzalez doubled in two, Todd Helton singled home CarGo, Ty Wigginton doubled, and then Mark Ellis got Todd home with an infield single. Terrific inning.
