Rockies Fall 6-2 At St. Louis, On Pace To Lose 100

At the half-way point of the season, the Colorado Rockies (31-51), who lost to the St. Louis Cardinals (44-39) 6-2 last night in St. Louis, are on pace to lose 100 games. Many believe that it would be difficult for Colorado manager Jim Tracy to survive that. The Rockies start a 3-game weekend series against the Washington Nationals (48-32) tonight at 5:05 MT at Nationals Park (TV: Root Sports).

The Cardinals took three of four from the Rockies and lost no ground in their chase of the National League Central-leading Pirates. The Rockies have tumbled into the basement of the NL West mainly because of the inconsistency of the starting pitching staff, a four-starter system that currently has two rookies.

Official: Thursday’s Box Score.

Tyler Colvin hit his 11th homer of the season and third in this series, a two-run shot off Victor Marte. Instead of a game-flipping event, it was a mere footnote for a hot player. Colvin drove in seven of the Rockies’ nine runs in the series and is hitting .351 since June 9.

Rockies all-star left fielder Carlos Gonzales went 0 for 4, ending his hitting streak at 12 games.

Colorado opens a three-game weekend series tonight in Washington, before Monday’s Homerun Derby and Tuesday’s All-Star game.

Tickets are available for the Rockies’ next home game at Coors Field vs. the Philadelphia Phillies on July 13th, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
