Aaron Cook had a great game going, going 5 strong innings, and with the team winning 4-3 into the 8th. But a 6-run 8th by the Arizona Diamondbacks could not be overcome even with a sellout crowd of 49,000 on Independence Day. The Rockies ultimately lost 11-7.
However, since the departure of Clint Hurdle, the team is doing extremely well and still has a good shot at the wild card. To do that though, they will have to pass the Giants by continuing to win games. They have a good home schedule until the All-Star break, so it's possible.
