Here are 3 numbers to know from the loss by the Colorado Rockies to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night at Coors Field
101 — That’s the number of RBI on the season now for C.J. Cron after a 3-for-4 night that included his 29th home run of 2022. The 101 RBI marks a career-high for the 32-year-old Cron and also makes the nine-year veteran the first member of the Rockies since Nolan Arenado in 2019 to eclipse the 100-RBI mark.
1.48 — That’s the ERA for Rockies starter Kyle Freeland over his four September starts after Tuesday’s outing where he allowed five hits and three runs (two earned) in six innings of work. Freeland also just walked one San Francisco batter while striking out four.
In his 24.1 innings in September, the southpaw has allowed 22 hits and four earned runs. Along with the 1.48 ERA, Freeland has posted a 2.74 FIP while opponents have slashed just .244/.292/.344 against him during that stretch. Also, in September, Freeland has thrown 64 percent of his pitches for strikes.
4 — That’s the number of multi-hit games for Alan Trejo since he first registered an at-bat this month on September 4, including Tuesday night’s 2-for-3 performance. In September, Trejo is slashing .333/.404./571 in 42 at-bats, with plenty of those coming as he has filled in for injured shortstop Jose Iglesias since the veteran went on the injured list on September 6.
Tuesday was the second consecutive game with multiple hits for the 26-year-old Trejo, who is now 4-for-8 on the homestand.
San Francisco and Colorado will square off again on Wednesday night at Coors Field, with first pitch scheduled for 6:40 p.m. (Mountain time)
