Quick hits: Starters earning wins

June 10, 2009 | 10:37 pm | 9  
  • The Rockies starting pitcher has earned seven wins during the team’s winning streak. Jorge De La Rosa and Jason Hammel, who have one between them before the winning streak, have won four of the games during the streak. Rockies starters have pitched 48 1/3 innings and have a 2.61 ERA during the seven-game stretch.
  • The Rockies bullpen has pitched 10 1/3 scoreless innings in the team’s past five games. The last Rockies reliever to allow a run was Josh Fogg in relief of Jorge De La Rosa on Friday against the Cardinals.
  • Clint Barmes extended his hitting streak to eight games. His also has at least one RBI in his past seven games.
  • Six of Troy Tulowitzki‘s seven home runs this seasons have been solo shots.
  • Chris Iannetta was 0-for-2 in his second game back from the disabled list. He is hitless in his past 15 at-bats going back to before the injury.

      We knew going in that the Rox had a tough home-away schedule early. We thought if they could just stay close through June that they would have a good shot at things. While the Dodgers have put the Rox in a big hole (had the Rockies won just four more of the games against the Dodgers they would only be 4 games out now), the team is not badly positioned in the wild card race with the favorable schedule ahead.

      Last night marked the low at -13 (23 home, 36 away). They now have 9 home and 9 away the rest of this month, then have a lot of homestands beginning in July. Hopefully, this improved play will carry over into Coors Field. If so, watch out!

      In any case, this Thursday morning is a heck of a lot more fun than last Thursday!

      The swagger is back

      BTW, I just watched the video of Hawpe’s double last night. They guy could not be any more comfortable. It’s a joke that he is not even in the top fifteen in all-star votes when he’s in the top five most productive NL hitters at ANY position. Hawpe, Helton, and Barmes are carrying this team right now.

      Your stat on Tulo confirms he doesn’t hit well in the cluch.

      By the way Tracy Kudos to whoever is in charge of the mobile version of the site, it looks great and is very easy to use

      WillM- I don’t agree Helton is part of the group carrying the team at the moment. His BA has dropped dramatically the past couple of weeks. Wasn’t he hitting over .340 just about 3 weeks ago? It’s now down to .308.

      Tracy- can you tell us Helton’s #s during this winning streak( AB, H, RBIs, SOs, etc)?

    • Mike | June 11, 2009 | 11:50 am

      During the streak Helton is 6 for 21, but with 7 RBI and 7 BB’s.

      I’m not sure it makes sense to talk about individuals carrying the team when the team is firing on so many cylinders. There’s 7 quality starts in 7 games by the starters, the bullpen has given up 2 runs in the 7 games, Stewart’s player of the week performance…we could keep going.

      Eric, thanks for the heads up, but my experience is not quite as good.

      A heads up to the developers….

      I have the blackberry bold. The left side of the screen is missing the first 3-5 characters or so. And no way to scroll over. And while I’m asking for things, a link to download would be great as well so I don’t have to enter the url everytime.

      Thanks all. I do enjoy the site. I travel a lot, so this would be great for me to keep up with the Rocks.
