Josh Outman pitched a pretty solid game for the Colorado Rockies in his second game as a part of the four man rotation experiment, but couldn't manage to get quite far enough in the game to earn a win.
After 4.2 innings pitched and just under 90 pitches thrown, Outman was pulled due to putting four men on base and allowing two of them to score. That pushed the score of the game from 11-1 up to 11-3, and Jim Tracy put his foot down and took Outman out of the game.
Righty Adam Ottavino was brought in to replace Outman and immediately gave up a three run homer to Nelson Cruz.
The Rockies still lead, but the score has been brought a lot closer for the Rangers as it currently stands at 11-7. The disastrous fifth inning did finally end for the Rockies but they responded by going 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth, so Texas will have another quick opportunity to add onto the great bottom of the sixth they put together, this time against the Rockies bullpen.
