Dexter Fowler would like to play the Arizona Diamondbacks every game for the remainder of the season. Since last week's series against the Snakes, Dexter Fowler has four home runs--all against Arizona. He added two more in Monday's game, a leadoff homer in the first inning and another one on the ninth inning. But the Rockies fell to the Snakes, 10-4, on Monday.
Troy Tulowitzki hit his 29th home run with two outs in the ninth inning to bring the game to 10-7, but that was as close as the Rockies would make it. Tulowitzki reached 100 RBI for the season, a new career high. Mark Ellis homered earlier in the game, his fourth of the season.
Esmil Rogers (6-5, 6.26 ERA) allowed a Justin Upton home run in the first inning, the 21st run he's allowed in that inning this season. But it was the fourth and sixth innings where the real troubles appeared. Geoff Blum had a two-run single in the former frame and a solo shot to start the latter. After issuing a single and a walk, Rogers left the game. Josh Roenicke came in and allowed three runs to score for the 8-2 lead.
Greg Reynolds and J.C. Romero each allowed a run in their appearances.
The Rockies (66-75, 35-34 home) continue this series on Tuesday night with Jason Hammel and Josh Collmenter on the mound.
