The Colorado Rockies have finally joined every other team in MLB in posting a shutout victory on Monday night after defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-0.
“We don’t expect our guys to throw shutouts. Just keep us in the game and give this offense a chance,” Manager Jim Tracy
The Rockies have been on a terror as of late winning 7 of their last 8 games and continue their three game stretch against Arizona tonight and Wednesday.
Everyone was excited when Dexter Fowler donned a Rockies uniform back in 2004 but it wasn’t until 2008 that Fowler recorded his first hit. Fast forward three years and Fowler is finally turning the corner.
Against the Houston Astros this past weekend, Fowler went 7-9 with a homer, five runs scored, three RBI’s and a stolen base all the while lifting his batting average to .276.
“This is the player that we think he’s capable of being on a regular basis.” Rockies Manager Jim Tracy
“I was ecstatic when I saw my name up there,” Fowler said. “You go through ruts and I’ve been through a couple in the box.”
The Colorado Rockies resume their 3-game stand against the Houston Astros today and Thursday.
