Rock Solid Recap: Bowling Shoe Ugly

Last night makes up for the 12-11 Arizona loss. Rockies didn't deserve this one at all.

Rockies 6, Padres 5  (12 innings)

Winning Player: Manny Corpas

Manny earned every bit of his individual W though.

He had a couple hiccups over the last two appearances but rebounded with 2 2/3 scoreless innnings tonight. Not just middle of the game scoreless innings either. We're talking 10th, 11th and 12th inning of a tightly contested, yet ugly baseball game.

After Franklin Morales provided the team with nothing for a second straight game, Corpas came in to clean up that mess. His only real blemish was a walk to Adrian Gonzalez that made pretty good baseball sense considering the situation.
