Rockies Win 6th in a Row!
The Colorado Rockies won their 6th straight game tonight against the San Diego Padres, who are in 1st place, but now only by a game, with one more game against the Rox tomorrow before the All-Star break.
Hammel pitched 6.1 innings and gave up only 2 runs. Belisle, Beimel and Street were all perfect in relief. LeBlanc pitched well for the Padres, but gave up 3 home runs, which accounted for all 4 Rockies runs. CarGo and Mora each had one homer, with the other from Eldred, whom I saw hit a towering homer in spring training, and again tonight left no doubt about his power when he launched the ball into right field.
It was a gorgeous night for a ball game, with 45,000 attending, including a record 10,000 tickets in walk-up sales.
The Rockies seem to be doing very well. Tomorrow if they win, they will go to the All-Star break tied for first place. That would make for a nice break!
