If the Rockies jerseys are going to make a move in the National League West, it probably going to have to wait until later in the season.
Question is, will it matter by then?
Tuesday night game against the White Sox jerseys, the opener of a six game homestand, was the first of 13 before the all star break. The Rockies jerseys went into the game flirting with .500 and hoping to stay there by the time the break arrives.
13 games become significant from the standpoint of, are you able to continue to at least maintain yourself? Rockies jerseys manager Jim Tracy said before the game. if you go beyond that, that terrific. Obviously that the goal moving forward. now, though, with seven rookies going through on the job training and cheap Jorge De La Rosa jersey gone for the season, the Rockies jerseys are trying to hold serve. They want to stay in the Giants jerseys rearview mirror until their young players turn career corners or reinforcements arrive before the July 31 trading deadline.
They did what they could on that front Tuesday night, with Ty Wigginton bloop single to center field scoring cheap Troy Tulowitzki jersey with the winning run in a 3 2, 13 inning victory that snapped a three game Rockies jerseys losing streak.
walkoff, said cheap Seth Smith jersey, who drove in two of the Rockies jerseys three wholesale mlb jerseys runs. our first, isn it? it took almost half the season, but the Rockies jerseys finally got their first walkoff of the year. Now for the bad news: Even with the win, the Rockies jerseys lost ground to the red hot Giants jerseys, who swept a day night doubleheader against the Cubs jerseys that left Colorado a season worst 6 1/2 games behind in the NL West standings.
And to think, one week earlier, after beating the Indians jerseys in Cleveland, the Rockies jerseys had crept to within 2 1/2.
you get deep in a game at home and you keep stopping them, you just waiting for somebody to do it, Smith said.
That somebody was Wigginton, who had seen the Rockies jerseys lose eight consecutive games in which he had homered, prompting him to crack wise that he might try drag bunting. He didn go that far, but his game winning hit didn go that far, either.
It served its purpose, though, as Tulowitzki, who had walked off loser Will Ohman, was on the move from first on a 3 2 pitch. The ball was hit so high, Tulowitzki was able to sprint all the way home with the winning run.
got a walkoff win, Tracy said. definitely was the definition of a team win right there. That was a very, very good game to win. Rockies jerseys used six relievers who held the Sox scoreless for six innings after starter cheap Jason Hammel jersey left after allowing two runs in seven. The last of the six, rookie Rex Brothers, pitched the 13th to pick up his first major league victory, one that enabled the Rockies jerseys to move above .500 (20 19) at Coors Field.
