What Went Wrong: I'm just winging this tonight. There was no TV coverage here in Illinois. There's no chance in hell I'm going to go back and watch it later. And I'd be lying if I said I didn't turn off the audio after the 7th to focus on the 76ers-Celtics game.
Turning Point: The Rockies scored one run on four hits in the 1st. Definitely could have and should have been more.
One batter into the Reds half, their lead was already in jeopardy after Zack Cozart grounded to Jordan Pacheco at third. Pacheco's throw sailed past Helton, and the Reds instantly had a man in scoring position. Jeremy Guthrie did retire Drew Stubbs and Joey Votto without any advancement. But as we so often see with these Rockies, he couldn't finish the inning off.
Brandon Phillips doubled Cozart home. Jay Bruce walked. Chris Denorfia (or Heisey, same thing) hits a three-run homer.
Jeremy Guthrie's Line: 5 IP, 6 R (2 ER), 10 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR, 104 pitches (67 strikes)
The four runs were unearned by rule only. Guthrie absolutely deserves to be credited with all four of them because he all needed to do was make one more quality pitch to pick up his teammate and escape the inning. Couldn't do it. Instead, he let the inning (and ultimately the baseball game) get away with the double, walk and home run. Those were all on him.
