Peaks & Valleys - June 20

It was an exciting night to be a Rockies fan, but the game was not without its peaks and valleys.

- Rockies Pull Out Come From Behind Victory To Win 8-7

- Johnny Herrera had his first four-hit game of his career.

- Chris Nelson made his major league debut, put down a successful sacrifice bunt, and scored. He knocked over the catcher to score that run.

Valleys

↵

- The top of the ninth provided more drama than necessary.

↵

- 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.

↵

- Franklin Morales, lefty, came in to pitch to Prince Fielder, lefty. Fielder walked.

- 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.
