Three-hit in Coors Field. That’s pretty pathetic. Two of those hits were in the first, with Escobar singling and coming home on Chipper’s double. They didn’t get another hit until KJ led off the ninth with a single, and he was erased on a double play.
Tom Glavine did his best to make it stand up. For the first five innings, he got the Rockies to chase a lot of pitches for easy outs. They started working the count in the sixth, and he piled up his three strikeouts in a row, but wasn’t as effective and Bobby pulled him with one out in the seventh. Moylan gave up a typical Coors Field single (pulled past Chipper too hard to make a play on) and hit a guy, but got out of it.
Blaine Boyer wasn’t as lucky, giving up a leadoff double in the eighth, then getting Helton on a strikeout only to follow that with a two-run homer to take the loss. That was pretty much it. I could write more but I’m nauseous.
