In case you didn’t stay up late last night for the Pittsburgh Pirates matchup in Colorado you almost missed a piece of history Coors Field is a notorious hitters ball pack with the thin air
But Rockies righty German Marquez made it look easy against the Buccos Yesterday
With the help of a few defensive gems from short stop Trevor Story. And this groundout from Kevin Newman to end the 8th Marquez was into the ninth with a no hitter in tact.
Kaai Tom led off the inning and promptly deposited one into shallow right field to break up Marquez’s no hit bid.
The hard throwing righty would induce a double play then a bounce out from Adam Frazier to end the game and preserve the 8-0 Rockies win
So Today the Pirates were looking for a little revenge and they had little time to think about it with an early first pitch
Fifth inning game tied at two CJ Cron deep enough on the sac fly as Garrett Hampson scores 3-2
In the sixth Reimel Tapia to center that brings in another 4-2
Hampson with the bat that goes as a single off third baseman Kebryan Hayes, Tapia scores 5-2
Rockies win 6-2
