The Rockies offense finally woke up
Much has been made about how pathetic the Rockies offense has been and even with the win in the Wild Card game, it is a major problem. I get that you had to face Jon Lester for six innings but when you face Jesse Chavez, Randy Rosario, Steve Cishek, Pedro Strop, Cole Hamels, Justin Wilson, Kyle Hendricks, and Jorge De La Rosa for seven innings, you should be able to muster more than one run.
They had plenty of opportunities too as the Rockies got seven hits and two walks off of them.
However, the Rockies were able to score in the 13th and win so, in the scope of the game, it didn’t matter.
But, as surprising as it may seem, the Rockies actually hit better in “high leverage” situations if you look at the numbers.
They were as flat as a pancake for much of the game but they finally hit with runners on base. Through regulation play, they were 1-for-15 with runners on base. However, in extra innings, they were 2-for-6, with both hits coming in the 13th inning.
