The Colorado Rockies' offensive ineptitude reared its head once again, paving the way to a 7-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants. This game could have been called after the second inning, the last time the Rockies had a hit in the game.
In the second inning, Kevin Kouzmanoff led off with a double and then moved over to third on Jordan Pacheco's single. However, Madison Bumgarner recovered from that by striking out the side on the next three batters. The Rockies had one more base runner in the game, which came in the sixth inning. Bumgarner hit pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta.
Bumgarner (13-13, 3.21 ERA) held the Rockies to just those two hits and struck out nine in seven innings. Alex White (2-4, 8.42 ERA) didn't end the season on a note he would have liked. White began the game with a walk and then threw two wild pitches. Mike Fontenot drove the runner in on a sacrifice fly.
Things went relatively well for the next two innings since no runs scored. The fourth inning, however, started with a Conor Gillaspie single to right. Brandon Belt followed by launching a home run into McCovey Cove for the 3-0 lead. White finished the inning and left the game.
Esmil Rogers was pitching in the sixth inning when Brandon Crawford tripled and scored on a wild pitch, which occurred with two outs. In the seventh, Rogers gave up a two-run inside-the-park home run to Gillaspie, who fell flat on his face while rounding third.
The Rockies (72-89, 34-46 away) close out the season with Drew Pomeranz on the mound for the Wednesday afternoon game.
