Kind of off topic for todays game....

Randy horton mentioned that after the dexter fowler single in the 9th yesterday that the rockies dugout asked for the ball. I checked his career stats and couldnt find any significant milestone...anyone know what the deal was here?

"Ricky" Horton. I checked my Denver Post and there is no mention of any sort of milestone, other than it broke an 0 for 20 dry spell for Fowler. Maybe he told the team that whenever he manages to get a hit, he wants the ball to remind him of how the game can humble you, so as not to get too cocky when things are going well.

No no-hitter today.  Garcia's given up two hits over two innings, albeit with four K's.  To keep the sequence going over this series he needs to limit the Rockies to one hit over the next 7....

So much for the shutout streak!  It ends with the Rockies shut down for 20.2 ip.  Garcia gives up a three run bomb, and the Cards are down 3-0.

Would be a shame to lose a game in the standings the way the team has played recently.

Two-run shot for Blackmon increases Colorado's lead to five.

Freese has hit the ball hard a couple of times today to the right side. When he is going well stroking the ball well the opposite field is the norm for Freese. Hopefully a sign he is starting to come around.

I was at the game so I couldn't tell on TV. It looked like that Martinez was being squeezed pretty bad on the batter that eventually walked. Then he gave up the 3 straight hits. For some reason also after Martinez struck out Rosario, Rosario was staring him down walking back to the batters box. Wonder if they had beef at Springfield last year. Martinez was behind the mound not looking but Rosario wouldn't take his eyes off him.

Didn't get to watch Martinez pitch today. How'd he look today against the Rockies?

Can't really scout someone from a MLB ballpark unless you have great seats. He K'd the first 2 guys, walked the 3rd, then gave up a bloop hit, a hard double and then another hit.

It looks like at times when pitchers go inside on Freese this season he tries shooting those pitches to the opposite field he's successful hitting it the other way but it's weak contact that are either weak flyballs or weak rollers to the second baseman. On the inside pitch he's just needs to turn on it and pull it or center up it up the middle. Although when he's stroking it well to the opposite field with solid contact he's almost always successful and that's what gets him going.

The loss and no-hit bid looked worse than they really were if you ask me. We had a LOT of hard hit balls that were right at the outfielders. In fact we had so many well hit balls I kept waiting for the offense to break through with a big inning. That obviously never happened.

The fact that we were getting good wood on the ball makes me believe this was just a day of bad luck on offense. Also remember that Colorado was one of the best offenses in the NL even after the two shutout games. There's no shame in getting roughed around by them and their performance yesterday is another reminder of just how spectacular Shelby and Adam were the days before.
