What an insane game. I guess you should expect the unusual and crazy when you play in Colorado. This afternoons game saw the Rockies jump out to a 3-0 lead only to see James Loney take that away with a GrandSlam in the Dodgers next at-bat. Then the Dodgers strike for four more runs to take a somewhat comfortable lead at 8-3. Of course, no lead is truly comfortable in Colorado. The Rockies slam in 7 runs and take a 10 to 8 lead in the 4th inning. To not be outdone, the Dodgers come roaring back and tie the game at 10 each. Then, before the stadium could take a breath the Dodgers score 7 runs of their own to take a commanding 17 to 10 lead. That was all the Blue Crew needed. Rookie Eric Stults closes out the game and the Dodgers head to San Francisco with a 3 game winning streak. The final score is 19 to 11.
BTW, James Loney recorded 9 RBI's that ties a franchise record. This kid is only 22 years old and will be a mainstay on this team for years to come. In fact, don't be surprised if, during the offseason, we pass on Nomar and let this kid bloom at first base.
