Once again, it was not a pretty win. Hammel pitched quite well, 7 innings and only 2 runs, and Colorado took a 4-2 lead into the 9th, when the bullpen fell apart. Beimel gave up a hit but got the out, and then Bettancourt gave up two runs to tie it.
The tenth was another improbable win for the Rox, after their 14-inning game last night. A walk, a bunt by injured Car-Go, with an error, an intentional walk to Helton, and a single by Tulo to win the game. It was a nice team effort, and representative of the team's hard work to get where they are, only 2 games behind the Dodgers, and at 18 games over .500, they have their best record ever at this point.
Tomorrow, Wolf vs. Fogg. Wolf is having a great year, and Fogg is doing well as a reliever, forced to start in the place of injured Aaron Cook.
