Rockies Vs. Tigers Final Score: Colorado Falls 5-0 In Series Finale

For the second straight day, the Colorado Rockies struggled at the plate against the Detroit Tigers. After falling 4-1 yesterday, the Rockies managed only seven hits and fell 5-0.

The Rockies had no answer for Max Scherzer, who simply dominated during his eight shutout innings. Scherzer struck out 12 batters and didn't issue a walk, as he improved his record to 6-4 this season. Unfortunately, Jeremy Guthrie wasn't able to deliver a similar performance for the Rockies. Guthrie allowed eight hits and three earned runs in just three innings. With the way Scherzer was pitching, the early deficit was something Colorado couldn't overcome.

Quintin Berry was impressive at the plate for the Tigers, recording hits in all five of his at bats. Ramon Santiago drove in two runs, while Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder each drove in a run as well. Marco Scutaro and Tyler Colvin each had two hits in the loss.
