In the eighth inning, the Rocky Mountain road heralded suffering. That tragic afternoon — headed by the injury of the starter Kyle Freeland — seemed destined to end in another away loss.
But in the three outs of the road sweep, the Rockies rebounded with the help of the Rangers on Wednesday afternoon. After one consecutive exit, shortstop Brendan Rodgers hit the left midfielder with a double strike, scored two goals, and the Rockies won 6-5.
After four mistakes, yes, four mistakes, including Rangers first baseman Nathaniel Lowe’s three mistakes, the Rockies played three more games.
Colorado’s wild 9-5 victory at Arlington avoided the sweep and temporarily distracted Freeland, who withdrew due to a left hip impact.
Rogers finished with two runs, two hits and three RBIs.
“We need to win that game after the last two nights,” Rogers said. “We have been in the game the whole game, we have been working hard… In the last game we had a few people on the base. Their batting ability was very good. The two big walks allowed me to swing well. .”
The receiver Jhoulys Chacin won.
The ninth inning of the five-game winning streak ended Colorado’s nine road trips with a slightly higher score, even though Freeland’s state was more urgent. Freeland, who started the game, only lasted one round, and then he pulled out with a tight hip. After passing the first game, Freeland offered to start the walk before Rocky Mountain manager Bud Blake approached him on the mound-his second game. There was not much controversy, and there was no sign of his illness. Freeland finished the game after 21 pitches.
“He noticed that he really couldn’t push the rubber and push down the mound when warming up,” Black said of Freeland. “He thought that as he entered the warm-up match, and when he entered the game with some adrenaline, the situation might get better, but it never happened.”
Black pointed out that Freeland had never suffered similar injuries, and he said he was fired for “preventive reasons.”
With Texas leading 5-0, Colorado’s rescue pitcher did not provide any help in the second inning.
Ironically, however, it was their rescue pitch that kept the Rocky Mountains within an astonishing distance.
The Rockies used six relief pitchers after the second inning to keep the Rangers without a point. Robert Stephenson gave Colorado two high-quality innings, and Daniel Budd resolved a full-base jam in the sixth inning. Cha Xin played cleanly in the seventh and eighth innings. Carlos Estevez ended in the ninth game.
Sam Hilliard (Sam Hilliard) started the fifth game, Connor Joe (Connor Joe) put him into the scoring position, singles on the left. With the Rocky Mountains gaining momentum, Hilliard hurried home and Joe moved to third place on the pass. After another walk, Charlie Blackmond defeated a potential double play, and Joe ran home to reduce the score to 5-4.
