Go Rockies!
No hit until the 8th. 2 hit shutout. Ouch.

Such is life as a Rockies fan. But just as I was not letting myself get too excited early, I'll try to not get too down and out now. Every team goes through slumps. Maybe the Rox can make up for this one by ripping off 8 in a row again later this month.

Ya have to give credit where credit's due to the St. Louis pitchers though. Talk about lights out pitching- yikes!

Hopefully the Rox will break out of this slump.

Well they saved the sweep with that 8-2 win yesterday, so that's good news. The team has gone 3-6 in its last 9, meaning 1-2 in each of its last three series. This is not a recipe for success. On the other hand, they are still in a good enough position where if they string together a few wins, there's still reason to hope. Cubs up next. At the risk of sounding disrespectful to the Cubs, I think this series may be just what the doctor orders for the Rox. They've played some solid teams in the last two weeks, but the Cubs don't seem able to put it together. The Rox really need to take two of three in this set.

Rox dropped 2 out of 3 in St Louis this past weekend, have slipped down to 3rd place at 20-17.

Sadly, they had only ONE hit on Friday night and only TWO hits on Saturday - losing both games 3-0.

Is St. Louis pitching really that good?
- Shelby Millier who won on Friday night pitched all 9 innings and is now 5-2 with an ERA of 1.58.
- Adam Wainwright who won on Saturday night pitched all 9 innings and is now 5-2 with an ERA of 2.30 ERA.

I'd say both of them are darned good. St Louis is tied with Texas for the best record in baseball at 24-13, a pace of .649

Meanwhile, as happens every year, the teams that start off the season by tearing up the league with records of .750 or better have reverted to the mean and things are settling in to a normal routine.

The Rox could write a book on how not to win two out of three in a set. Chapter 1: Get blasted 9-1 against the Chicago Cubs. Find it on shelves later this summer!

Well, at least Rutledge got good wood on the ball.

Well, the Rockies dropped 2 of 3 to the Cubs in Chicago, scoring 13 vs 19 for the Cubs. Now, 21-19, two games behind the Giants.

Rox are back home this weekend, playing FOUR games against Division leading SF Giants, and need to win three of them.

Meanwhile, the season is now 25% over.

Chatwood looked good last night, in for the injured Jeff Francis. A couple weeks ago I was ready to ship Francis off to AAA but he has leveled off. The Rox had a big win last night and I'm glad to see them pushing back against the Giants. May has been a tough month once again, but it has not been the disaster it usually is. The team is keeping up and seems to be pretty serious about winning.

YES!! Finally, the Rox rose to the occasion and just took 3 of 4 from the defending champions SF Giants.

So, Rox and Giants are tied for second, one game behind AZ, who lost today.

Rox are 24-20 at .545 which is not good enough to win any division or wild card slot, but their play this weekend is very much improved.
