Box Score Bytes - Game 44

- Over his last 10 games, Todd Helton is 7 for 37 (.189) with 2 RBI and 8 strikeouts.  So what does he do tonight?  Hits his 5th homer to get the Rox going.  Read on twitter that he is within three bases of Mickey Mantle for most career total bases...Wow

- That was a great solid win.  Amazing for whatever reason the team can put together a solid win on the road and yet at home find nothing..

- Every Rox starter has a hit!  Tracy threw out an interesting lineup tonight.  With EY Jr leading off.  Moving Scutaro to the 2nd spot.  Thought the Denver Post had a throw away article about Scutaro poor leading off.  I thought everyone knew he wasn't a natural lead off kind of guy and that once again Dex is messing with the lineup due to his poor performance.  Interesting to see if Tracy keeps with the lineup.

- Rox win in black again.  But overall Rox are only 5-15 in their last 20 games.  Wear more black!

- Welcome Wil Nieves
