Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 4

Rockies 8, Brewers 6  (Boxscore)


Hector Gomez

I think Gomez wants to make his ML debut much sooner than later.  That's probably at least a year away yet, but a great showing today nonetheless.  He finished 2-for-2 with a double, triple, two runs, two RBI and some solid defense at short.  File the name away... Hector Gomez.

Andrew Johnston

A nice five pitch save for the 2009 Tulsa Drillers closer.  I don't usually get excited about spring training saves, but what I liked here is he came right out and shut the opponents down after the Rockies rallied late to take the lead.  I like shutdown innings.  Craig Baker, the game's winner, also had one in the 8th.  Nice job.
