What a Difference a Closer Makes!

About 4 minutes ago the last pitch was fired past the final Pirates batter of the series. Rockies swept the series and looked good doing it. Manny Corpas finished all three games out for us. Keep in mind that last road trip where we went 1-9 with 3 blown saves in a week by the All-Star Brian Fuentes. Todd and Brad homered today. And Jeff pitched a fantastic game! If our starting pitching keeps its consistency (Josh pitched great yesterday too!) then we might be able to string a run at the division together!

Tomorrow night we will be in DC to take on the woebegone Nationals. Hopefully we can take at least 3 of the 4, if not sweep. If we can take 3 of those games we will return to the Mile High City winning 7 out of 10 and ready for a nice productive homestand against the battling divison leaders – the Padres and the Dodgers. It could be a great week for us next week!

If we can produce and perhaps (dare I dream) take both of those home series, we will be in a solid place to battle for 2nd in the division! Rockies, you have my hopes and dreams raised, please don’t hurt my heart!
