White Sox Vs. Rockies: Colorado Wins On Walkoff Single, 3-2, In 13th Inning

It took just 79 games for the Colorado Rockies, but they pulled off their first walkoff win of the season on Tuesday night with a 3-2 victory in 13 innings. After Todd Helton flied out to start the inning, Troy Tulowitzki worked a work off of Will Ohman before Seth Smith struck out swinging. So with two outs, Ty Wigginton came to the plate. He blooped the ball to center field, which Brent Lillibridge missed judged, Tulowitzki hustled his way to home plate, avoiding a tag at home to win the game.

Rex Brothers (1-0) picked up his first career win. He was one of six relievers the Rockies used, all pitching one inning. Had the game gone to the 14th inning, Brothers would certainly have come out again since he threw just nine pitches in the 13th.

The White Sox scored first with an Alexei Ramirez home run in the second inning, which was negated with a Seth Smith RBI single in the bottom of the fourth. Former Rockie Juan Pierre put the White Sox back up when he doubled in Gordon Beckham in the fifth inning, but once again Seth Smith came through by hitting a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

Rockies starter Jason Hammel went seven innings, allowing both runs on six hits and two walks. He did not strike anyone out. White Sox starter Gavin Floyd put up the same exact line as Hammel did.

The Rockies (39-40, 20-19 home) continue this series on Wednesday night with Ubaldo Jimenez facing Mark Buehrle at 6:40 p.m. MT.
