    Default SD vs COL

    Pretty good game. 13 innings Rockies win 9-8. I don't think Holliday ever touched the plate though.

    He definitely didn't touch the plate, but Michael Barrett and Bud Black should have been arguing that.

    He may not have touched the plate, but Colorado didn't get the clear home run(that bounced off the chair) earlier in the game, so I think were even.

    I nodded off after the two-run knock in the top of the 13th.

    Woke up this morning, saw the paper and was like WTF.

    Thoughts before, during and after the game:

    Holding out hope for a Rockies win, but geeze, winning the last 13 out of 14 games is way too much to expect it to continue.

    Facing NL's best pitcher does not bode well at all, but then Rocks have home field advantage (where they have done very well).

    One argument made for Holliday's MVP (by Rockie announcers at least), is his good fielding. I hadn't noticed any particular flashes of leather this year but figured they knew more than I did. His muff of the fly ball in the 8th inning or so kind of eliminated the good (left, not Prince) fielder argument.

    Start of 13th inning: I've been putting off laundry for days (and all night), can't wait any longer. To the laundry room to come back and find out the Padres had hit a two run homer, and another guy is on first with no one out. Padres 8-6. Pitching change. The Rockies bring in Ramon Ortiz, scared rookie, 8+ ERA, looking like he weighs no more than 175 sopping wet. Can he possibly stem the Padre tide. He does.

    Between innings I'm accepting that the Rockies will probably lose: the Rockies have a really great bullpen, but San Diego's is even better. I'm also thinking the Padres aren't a good representative team for the NL. They'll probably never get far in the playoffs in spite of their great pitching.

    The Rockies face the great Hoffman. Matsui doubles. Tulowitski gets a hit. Btw, Tulo has star written all over him. He's got the talent and a certain mental attitude. As a rookie, he's taken a leadership role on the team.

    Holliday rocks a triple to tie the game. Can it be? Play at the plate: looks like the ump missed the call. I'm reminded of the blown call in the 6th game of the 1985 World Series (StL-KC) that changed the whole complexion of that series. But this game is over.

    Unbelievable!

    p.s. Ortiz is not a rookie at all. He just looked like he could be. But he got the job done.

    Rockies bullpen went 9 innings and gave up only 3 runs (all by one reliever Julio)
