I don't know how many of you stayed up to watch the Rockies Giants game, but it just ended, and I am disgusted. The 1-1 game went all the way to the 14th inning, where Valez laced a 2-run triple with runners at the corners to go up 3-1, and they tacked on one more run before the inning was over, leading 4-1 going into the bottom of the 14th. Everything was looking good for us to close the gap, until Giants pitchers decided the strike zone was something they didn't want any part of. With the bases loaded and 1 out, pitcher Adam Eaton stayed in to bat, due to the lack of players left in the game. Stupid NL. But anyways, He walked after a 3-1 count, and Miller throwing yet another ball. This brought in Valdez to TRY and close it out with the bases loaded, but he proceeds to pitch a walk-off grand slam ball to an all-too-familiar Ryan Spilborghs to win it 6-4.... As you will all see on SportsCenter.
We were a ''mediocre'' inning of pitching away from being only 2.5 games back, but now sit almost 5 games behind this Rockies team. I just had to vent to someone. I'm extremely pissed right now.
Are the Rockies going to let us catch them? I know they have a tough stretch of games in the coming week, but if they continue to play the way they are, what's stopping them from taking the wild card?
PLEASE BRAVES, GO ON A BIG RUN, AND SCREW THE ROCKIES!
Goodnight, and lets go Bravos. Time for a sweep.
