Box Score Bytes - Game 49

- The Jamie Moyer experiment is over.  Rox designated him for assignment yesterday.  He is given 10 days for teams to make an offer otherwise Rox will release him.  While it certainly was a nice story for Moyer and the Rox. it is a shame the Rox season up to this point was such that Moyer is almost the fall guy in all of this.  Realistically he was never suppose to be our number 1 or 2 starter but because of our young staff and injuries Moyer was thrusted into a role which was unsuited to why the Rox signed him in the first place.  I thank Moyer for his professionalism and his high sanitary socks.  Good luck.  Anyone want to take bets that he goes to a NL team and gets a victory against our Rox?

- Back to the game, Houston out-hit the Rox, 15-14, but lost by 8 runs. 

- Since Coors Field opened in 1995, there have been 17 three-HR games there, 15 in Wrigley Field, 14 in Rangers Ballpark and in Cincinnati’s parks, and an average of 5 in all the other parks.

- CarGo has been on a tear going 10 for 16 with five home runs, seven RBIs and six runs scored in his past four games. He has 13 homers on the season.

- Cuddyer collected his second grand slam this season.

- All in all the offense seems to be clicking now if we could get some mound consistency Rox could make something happen.  At 20-29, the Rox runs scored/runs allowed would suggest that they are really a 23-26 team.  Perhaps Rox will have a luckier June!
