LAst Night's Action: Angels Steamrolled by Hot Rockies
Colorado Rockies defeat LA Angels 11-1. Angels starter Matt Palmer was 6-0 coming into Monday night's game. Then the red hot Rockies stopped by Angel Stadium and scorched Palmer to the tune of six runs in 4 2/3 innings. Brad Hawpe celebrating his 30th birthday gave himself a present knocking a three-run homer in the top of the fifth inning that all but cinched the win for the Rockies. Meanwhile Rockies starter Aaron Cook pitched seven innings of three-hit one-run ball thoroughly frustrating the Angels hitters. In fact the Kendry Morales hit a solo shot off of Cook in the fourth inning to make the only dent for the Angels. The Rockies have now won 17 games of their last 18 under new manager Jim Tracy. I wonder if he still interviews himself.
