Cardinals Vs. Rockies Score Update: Colorado, St. Louis Tied 2-2 After Six Innings

The Colorado Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals are tied 2-2 through six innings of play on Thursday night after starter Alex White saw the wheels fall off following a strong start. The outing is truly a microcosm of White's 2012 season so far, as he continues to show flashes of skill despite middling results.

White was in the midst of the shutout through the first five innings of Thursday's game, but he got into trouble during the sixth inning and ultimately couldn't finish it. After allowing a pair of runs, White left reliever Rex Brothers with the bases loaded and one out, putting the lefty in a tough position.

Brothers showed why he's going to be a key part of the Rockies' bullpen going forward, though, as he induced a double play from the first batter he faced, Lance Berkman, to get out of the jam. Considering the position that White left him in, Brothers did a nice job of salvaging the situation.

After Brothers came through to prevent the Cardinals from blowing things open, the Rockies offense came back and tied things up with a sacrifice fly from Jordan Pacheco. Colorado has mustered just seven hits so far on the day, plus three walks from Todd Helton, but Pacheco has led the effort with two hits and two RBI.
