What Went Wrong: Death, taxes, and no-hit bids against the Rockies offense one day after they seemingly break out of a funk. Regardless of the lineup over the past three years, we can always counts on that.
Today, Madison Bumgarner carried his bid into the sixth. That's where Tyler Colvin, who had just entered the game as part of a double switch, led off with a lefty on lefty single — played into a triple by Melky Cabrera — and eventually scored the Rockies first run. Colvin also had a 13-pitch at-bat (flyout) in the eighth and a 5-pitch, bases loaded walk in the ninth, making him the Rockies best offensive player essentially on an off day. That's a problem in and of itself.
The Rockies also had another critical defensive lapse in this game. Allow me to expand on that one.
Turning Point: Dexter Fowler's error.
That's right, Drifting Dexter dropped a routine flyball — leading to two unearned runs (check out the final score) — just days after Casual CarGo dropped one in the home opener — leading to three unearned runs.
