......and a badly needed victory today for the Rockies. Fogg pitched an imperfect, but serviceable 6 innings in the Desert to keep the team's playoff pulse ticking. An early offensive explosion against Webb (apparently it was a fashionable day to have a starter with extra syllables at the end of their name) was just enough for Fogg to secure the victory. Fuentes provided some typical late-inning drama followed by Corpas showing why he is now the closer. Yes, you can lose your job to an injury, thank you very much!
Not only was this win vital to keeping the playoffs their sights, but it provided welcome relief from the news of the day that Cook re-injured his rib cage muscle and is out for the season. Can a team actually make a playoff push with 3 of their 5 starters on the DL? Probably not, but we are still talking about pro baseball around here in September. Might have to head down to Coors tomorrow afternoon and check out some Labor Day action. I just really get a kick out of booing Bonds!!!
