PHOENIX (AP) Once again, the Colorado Rockies jerseys were launching baseballs out of Chase Field. It was that kind of season opening series for the Arizona Diamondbacks jerseys.
Rookie cheap Trevor Story jersey hit his fourth home run of the series and made baseball history in the process in the Colorado Rockies jerseys’ 4 3 victory on Wednesday.
“I thought Patrick threw the ball well,” Arizona manager Chip Hale said. “It just seemed like every mistake we made in this series was a home run, not a hit but a home run. Unfortunately the mistakes he did make went out of the ballpark and today we weren’t able to make up for it.”
In all, the Rockies jerseys hit 10 home runs in the three game series, nine against Diamondbacks jerseys starters. Colorado won two of the three games.
Corbin (0 1) pitched seven innings, giving up four runs and eight hits. He struck out six, including Story twice after the home run.
“It was good to get through seven,” he said. “I felt strong and felt like I could have done longer. Just frustrating. Just a couple of pitches These three games they’ve been really hot, the whole team. It’s tough to not win the series, but it is early and we just have to get back.”
Story also is the first player in baseball history to hit a home run for each of his first four hits, according to information provided to the Rockies jerseys from the Elias Sports Bureau.
“It was fun to watch him,” Rockies jerseys manager Walt Weiss said, “a young kid who has dreamt of this his whole life and shows up and is probably better than his dream was that first game, that first series. . It is quite a story pun intended.”
It was a big day for cheap Tyler Chatwood jersey, too.
The Rockies jerseys right hander pitched a strong 6 1/3 innings in his first big league appearance since recovering from a second Tommy John surgery. He said he wasn’t able quite yet to step back and realize that yes, he’d made it.
Chatwood’s last start was in the same Phoenix ballpark on April 29, 2014. He went on the disabled list the next day.
“I’m sure he had this date circled on the calendar. “Weiss said. “He went out there and did an outstanding job. That’s the Chatwood that we all remember. Goes out there and competes like a bulldog, great stuff, a really big day for him and for us.”
Story also made a lunging grab of cheap Paul Goldschmidt jersey’s sharp line drive in the fifth inning, one of several slick plays by the Rockies jerseys’ infield.
The Rockies jerseys hit three home runs off cheap Zack Greinke jersey, four off cheap Shelby Miller jersey and Corbin, overpowering what the Diamondbacks jerseys feel is a strong 1 2 3 start to the rotation.
Story connected with Corbin’s third pitch of the game, sending it to deep left center field, far over the 415 foot sign.
Goldschmidt was hit by a pitch to reach base for the 38th consecutive game, tying Luis Gonzalez’s franchise record.
Story hit four home runs in the dry desert air of Arizona and there’s no telling how many he’ll hit in notoriously hitter friendly Coors Field in Denver.
He will play his first game there Friday night when the Rockies jerseys end their two plus months in Arizona and play their home opener against San Diego.
