Okay, I may be stretching it a bit, but the Rockies/Padres game lasted 22 innings. The game lasted over 6 hours and I bet these guys are dreading the game tomorrow. Petco Park, the home of the San Diego Padres, is just a huge place to play. If you get two teams with good pitching, you are setting yourself up for games like this. Each team had over 70 at-bats, but only around eleven hits each. I have Todd Helton on my fantasy team and he alone killed my batting average for the day since he was 1 for 9. The starting pitchers tomorrow will have to nearly go the distance if these teams want to make it through the next few games. This was the last game of the series and Colorado has to travel to start a series with Houston tomorrow.
Jake Peavy pitched a marvelous game, which is to be expected, but it wasn’t good enough. The sluggish Padres offense killed him once again. If Peavy wants to end his career with 300 wins, he will need to go to a team that puts up more than 2 or 3 runs a game.
This game ended on a RBI double by Troy Tulowitzki. Hopefully this will catapult him out of his sluggish start and get the Rockies back to their winning ways. If the Rockies don’t start winning games, they will once again need an amazing finish to the season to make the post-season, since the Diamondbacks look to already be in mid-season form.
