First to strike

Rockies looking good after the first 2 innings, putting together a nice little rally in the 2nd, cashing in 3 runs (however Holliday did leave'em loaded). That Hamels dude doesn't look to sharp; he was hanging his curve ball all over the plate. Hopefully he keeps that up and doesn't settle down. How about Helton nearly going yard for his first post-season AB.




Francis also looking impresive, striking out the 1st 4 batters after starting off the game with 3 consecutive balls.

Go Rox! ... Our Rox!

Damn, this is getting dicey. 3 runs won't win this game. Fire it up offense!! Why am I at work??

dicey indeed. the bats are ice-cold since that 2nd inning and the phils are starting to look a bit dangerous (back to back jacks will do that)

Here comes Hawkins, oh god. I can only imagine Deathtruck's reaction.

My main man Holliday!. Should've done it with the bases loaded, but we'll take it.

Sammy Winder said...

got it done...NICE!

DeathTruck said...

It's good to see Corpas isn't affraid of a little post-season pressure. Huge win!

TroutDog said...

YES!!!

So huge to get Game 1 of five game series! And against their only semi-dominant pitcher.

Hats off to Francis and the bully. Something tells me our bats will do more damage tomorrow.
