Box Score Bytes - Game 110

- Game 45 of the Great Tracy Experiment (Train Wreck): Record 17-28.   Chatwood's second start of the year and pitches 5 strong innings with only 71 pitches!  Somebody got the memo!.  Starter's record is now 6-21 with 18 no decisions and bullpen record of 11-7. 

- Hard to believe we shut an offense down at their home park after they erupted with 35 runs at your park in about a weeks time.

- Rox third shutout this year and second in four games.  Have to wonder if Rox pitchers were pitching in pitcher friendly parks all the time whether they would be more successful.  Aggressiveness on the mound and self confidence can certainly be powerful.  Coors has really wrecked havoc on our psyche this year...

- Helton's 2012 campaign is over.  Had surgery today and hopes to be ready for next Spring and the 2013 season which in all likelihood will be his swan song and farewell tour.  At 38 years young he played in 69 games and collected 57 hits in 283 plate appearances.  He has 2,420 hits in his career.  It would be nice if he could stay healthy next year and get to the 2,500 plateau.
