Well, it's difficult to be overly excited about the Rockies' first sweep of the season given today's news, but the recaps must go on. Jason Jennings wasn't Jeremy-like, but he did hang in long enough to get a well-deserved no decision. Brian Fuentes gets the first star (that's a hockey reference, for those of you who remember hockey) for his multi-inning "tough" save. Todd Helton had a nice game (3 for 5), and Todd Greene kept up his campaign to scuttle J.D. Closser's development with a 3 for 4 evening. Greene and Clint Barmes homered. Now both are hurt! And by the way, I see just now that Clint will be out for the whole year! We're having fun now!
As for Greene, he tripped scoring a run in the seventh and left the game with a strained hamstring. He'll be out 15 days, thank you very much. Clearly Barmes' bizarre triple-that-wasn't in the fifth (called a foul ball and do-over after Clint was thrown out between home and third) was some kind of hideous omen. Also Matt Holliday has a jammed right pinky. MAKE IT STOP!
