Summer Is Over, but the Rockies Ain't

Deathtruck and I enjoyed Labor Day in a sun-drenched Coors Field to see the Rox roll the Giants 7-4. A strange game to be sure. The offense put a 7-spot on the board in the 3rd inning to give the hometown fans plenty of breathing room all afternoon. Francis had a pretty good outing, but did not survive the 6th inning. Things got a little tighter than necessary, mostly due to squandered offensive opportunities after the 3rd inning, but all in all, a relaxing afternoon at the ball park.

4 games out of the wild card and the Rox are very much alive. However, more bad news today, as it looks like it is certain that Hirsh will also be out for the remainder of the year. I think it goes without saying that it's up to the bats to come through in September......
