It was an exciting night to be a Rockies fan, but the game was not without its peaks and valleys.â†µ
- The Rockies scored seven runs after the sixth inning. For most of the season, the Rockies have been unable to score late in the game.â†µ
- Johnny Herrera had his first four-hit game of his career.â†µ
- Chris Nelson made his major league debut, put down a successful sacrifice bunt, and scored. He knocked over the catcher to score that run.â†µ
- The top of the ninth provided more drama than necessary.â†µ
- Manny Corpas recorded the first two outs of the inning, but allowed two base runners while doing it. He then allowed a three-run homer to bring the game to a one-run lead in favor of the Rockies.â†µ
- Franklin Morales, lefty, came in to pitch to Prince Fielder, lefty. Fielder walked.â†µ
- Jonathan Lucroy battled Rafael Betancourt for 10 pitches, fouling off six straight at one point. But that 10th pitch gave the Rockies the win and made the overall game a peak.
