Helton's Big Bat Couldn't Help the Rockies

Colorado Rockies started the season off with a 3-2 lost to the San Diego Padres. SP Jason Jennings had first inning jitters, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits, including a triple from Padres outfielder Brian Giles. But the Rockies didn't give up yet, Todd Helton had a great game, going 3 for 4 with 1 double and 2 singles. After the first inning, Jennings was lights out, only allowing 4 hits and no runs. Clint Hurdle said "Well, we know what we have to work with, we have 161 games left, I have a really good feeling this year." SP Jake Peavy for San Diego had a good showing, going 7 innings, allowing 2 runs on 9 hits. The Rockies hope to get even in the series as the take on the Padres in game 2.

Good luck with the Rockies. My Rockie dynasty is still going and the team is not too bad except for the "blow" pen!

Yea, that's true, Rockies have some good prospects in both lineup and rotation (Barmes & Francis), and with Helton's big bat, hopefully the team can supply a power surge.

Rockies Don't Get Mad, They Get Even

The Rockies started off like last game, Joe Kennedy allowed 3 runs on 4 hits, including 2 homeruns, one from Mark Loretta on the 1st pitch and then from Ramon Hernandez all in the 1st inning. Woody Williams was pitching pretty good. The Padres were leading 4-2 until the 7th inning, when the Rockies had a power surge. The Rockies went out on a vengeance, coming back and winning the game 7-4. Homeruns weren't a problem for the Rockies, they had 3 HR's including a Grand Slam from Todd Helton. Rookie sensation Clint Barmes had a good game himself, going 3 for 5 with 1 HR, 2 singles, and a key walk. Joe Kennedy got the win, after struggling through the first couple innings, he finished off strong and was the key to the win. Todd Helton said "Today was a great win, I felt really good, and if we play like this every game, we have a chance to finish on top." The Rockies take on the San Francisco Giants next series.

He went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI's, one from a sac fly and then from a homerun in the 9th inning to win the game. After the game Miles said "Today was my day, I felt good this morning while hitting in the cages, and it showed, I hope to do this more often." Shawn Chacon pitched a great game, he pitched a solid 7.1 innings, only allowing one run off of 6 hits. Jay Witasick got the win, after Miles smacked one into McCovey Cove. Noah Lowry also pitched a decent game, despite Aaron Miles, who hit him well. The Rockies lead the series 1-0, and hope to extend their winning streak to 3 games.

Giants Let the Bats do the Talking

The Colorado Rockies suffered a tough 9-6 loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Giants had the bats alive tonight scoring 9 runs. Edgardo Alfonzo and Marquis Grissom both contributed with 2 run homers. Jeff Francis started the game, and was looking good until the Giants bats came out. Clint Hurdle said "I don't know what to say, everytime we scored they came back with more, they were very much alive tonight." The bullpen caused lots of problems for the Rockies, Byung Hyun Kim had the lead when he entered in the 6 inning and then he came apart. This was a crucial lost for the Rockies, now they must seek into their bullpen for some help. On a side note, Todd Helton did well in the game with 2 homeruns, one a 480 FT blast into McCovey Cove. The series is tied 1-1, and the Rockies hope to come through and take the series with them.

BHK A Member of the Rockies No More

The Rockies have released 26 year old Byung-Hyun Kim, who after pitching only one inning, had an ERA of 13.50 and recorded the lost. Byung Hyun Kim walked out of Coors Field a bit upset and had this to say "I know I messed up on some things, I wished things would have been different, maybe if they would have gave me another chance, they could have got to seen me on a good day." After Kim had this to say, Clint Hurdle followed up with "He can't have on and off days, he needs to stay focused and make every time he pitches a good day."

Rockies signed 31 year old veteran Jose Jimenez, to a 2 year contract at 100 K. Jimenez will be taking over the Middle Relief spot where Byung-Hyun Kim failed to obtain. Jimenez was a former Rockie until the 2003 season, when they released him. Jimenez was overwhelmed to join his fellow teammates and said this "I am very happy to come back to Colorado, hopefully I can help in the bullpen, and take this team far."

Interesting move BBFK. With it being this early in the season, I would have given him atleast 1 or 2 more chances, but whatever floats your boat. :D

BHK really upset me, I had the lead 6-4 in the top of the 6th inning, I put him in and all hell broke loose. I don't want to take the chance of him losing another game, if I was Jeff Francis (He started), I would be pi$$ed at BHK.

Stay tuned to the dynasty, we'll see if it ends up good.

Giants Not So Giant

Standing at 5'7'' 180 lbs, Aaron Miles was the giant in the game. Miles went 3 for 5, with two homeruns, the second homerun put the Rockies up by one in the 10th inning, one single, and two RBI's. Miles wasn't only making plays with his bat, he pulled off some gold glove plays on defense as well. The Rockies striked first against SP Jason Schmidt, who allowed three runs off of four hits in the 1st inning. Miles is currently tied for 5th place with three homeruns and is in 9th in slugging percentage with .963. After the game Miles had this to say "I am so happy everything is going right for this team, watch out National League, the new look Rockies are on its way." Jamey Wright, who started for Colorado had a solid outing, going six innings, allowing only three runs. On a side note, new addition Jose Jimenez pitched two stellar innings, allowing no hits and 3 k's. The Colorado Rockies take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in their next series.

Rocky Start for Rockies

Rockies faced the Arizona Diamondbacks and suffered a tough 3-2 loss. The bats weren't really alive for either team, having a combined 14 hits. The Rockies did strike first with a homerun from Todd Helton in the 4th inning. But in the bottom of the 4th, SP Jason Jennings fell apart, Chad Tracy started with a two run double down the left field line, and Jose Cruz Jr. followed up with an RBI double lining it to the wall in centerfield. Russ Ortiz SP for Arizona had a good outing, only allowing two runs. Colorado hopes to get back even in the series as the take on Arizona for Game 2.
