Opening Day at Coors Field!
The Rockies had an excellent opening day, scoring 10 runs off 14 hits. Cole Hamels debut with the World Champion Phillies was ruined by giving up 7 runs in less than 4 innings. Marquis, on the other hand, pitched quite well for the Rockies, going a full 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs. Seems like a smart pickup for the Rocks. Marquis also had 2 hits, and an RBI in addition to his sac bunt. Not bad for a pitcher!
Atkins made his first hit of the year count as a 2-run homer. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a ballgame, and it was a pleasure to watch the Rockies get their 3rd win of the season!
