Rockies begin series against Yankees
The Colorado Rockies took game two 5-3 Saturday night and followed that up with a 2-1 win to close out the series with two wins and a loss led by SP Tyler Anderson in his Major League debut. Anderson went 6 1/3rd innings, striking out six and 1/3rd innings, striking out six and allowing only two runs.
“That was Tyler Anderson’s day,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “To step up like that, talk about a tough assignment. Come in here and pitching like, that’s big-time stuff. He pounded in the zone, I don’t think he walked a guy, and the changeup was a difference-maker. The fastball-changeup combination mixed in with the cutter, he had all his weapons working. Great command. What a debut.”
There is little time to celebrate as the Rox welcome the New York Yankees to Colorado for a three game series with Nathan Eovaldi taking the mound for the Yankees and SP Jorge de la Rosa starting for the Rockies.
