Box Score Bytes - Game 50

- Carlos Gonzalez homered in four at-bats in a row between yesterday and today.  Amazingly this is a first for any Rox player.  Last time it was done was in 2006 when Pujols did it. It was the 22nd time a major league player has homered in four consecutive plate appearances and the 38th time for four straight official at-bats.

- The Astros have a better record than the Rockies.  Astros had 55 hits, scored 23 runs, and get swept by Rox.  By the way Rox only had 56 hits in the sweep but scored 40 runs!

- This is the Rox 4th four game series at home against Astros. They are 2-2-0. All time, against all teams they are 31-22-35 in four game series at home. Of course they are 0-6-2 on the road against Houston in 4 game series and 17-52-25 all time on the road in 4 game series

- Tulo goes on the DL.  Rox historically haven't been very good without their All Star short stop.  In 2007 and 2009 when Rox made playoffs, Tulo played in 155 and 151 games respectively.  In the other years, when Rox not so good, he has played 101, 122, and 143 games.
