Last night the AAA Rockies played the AAA Dodgers in a game with playoff implications for the Rockies. Essentially, lose and we finish in 5th place and we’d be out of the playoffs. There was a faint hope that if we did lose we could go on, but we’d need a LOT of help. That didn’t happen.
The game started out well, we built to a 4-1 lead only to see the 3 run cushion evaporate and the game tied in the 5th inning. We exploded for 5 more runs in the 7th and held the Dodgers off in the bottom of the 7th for a 9-4 win. All in all, a great game and hopefully it will breathe some life into the team.
We are back at it on Saturday, hosting the Dodgers for the early game. We need another great win to make our push for the playoffs a real thing. I am sure they will be out to avenge last nights loss, it’ll be a good one.
