Box Score Bytes - Game 59

- The top three batters in Angel's lineup, combined to go 23 for 42 (.548) with 16 RBIs and 21 runs scored in the series.

- Two glaring issues this year for the Rox have been terrible starting pitching and errors in the field. Pacheco was the latest victim missing on a potential double play that then led to a 3 run homer. This occurred right after Rox had gotten back into the game by tying it up 6-6.

- The Rockies have gotten four innings or less from their starter in four of the past five games.

- So goes Dex, so goes the Rox?  Since the conclusion of his nine-game hitting streak, Fowler has two hits in his past 15 at-bats with nine strikeouts.

- Jack Corrigan, Rox radio announcer, is a fairly low key guy. I think in the business you  have to be because of emotional roller coaster of watching a team game in and game out. Yesterday though he let it loose after the terrible call in the 9th inning that doubled up Scutaro and CarGo.  At the time Rox had scored a run and had closed to within 2 runs.  With  no outs and Scutaro on first and with CarGo at the plate Rox had a nice chance.  CarGo ripped the ball to the pitcher who apparently caught it but dropped it on the transfer (?).  CarGo saw the out signal but umpire called it a hit and thus instead of just one out and Scutaro on first, Rox comeback was cut short with the easy double play.  Corrigan was beside himself and went ballistic as did Tracy who got thrown out for the first time this year.
