The big story about the Rockies last year, besides Jeff Cirillo being a baby about the humidor, was the widely-circulated USA Today human interest piece about the prevalance of devout Christians in the Colorado clubhouse.
Clearly, Satan is a baseball fan.
After they lost more starting pitchers in a week than teams used to use for a whole rotation, after their #1 and #2 hitters both suffered possibly season-ending injuries on back-to-back plays, after a grand slam was stolen from them on a botched fan-interference call... they start off their critical game tonight in Philadelphia by hitting into a triple play.
One so strange that the Phillies themselves weren't quite sure what had happened and tried to tag Cory Sullivan out a second time just in case.
With Sullivan on first after a ball fell in between Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand, Troy Tulowitzki bunted for a hit. Then Matt Holliday hit a liner just a few inches off the ground that Greg Dobbs gloved. Dobbs threw to Jimmy Rollins at short, who almost missed tagging second to retire Sullivan (hence the redundant throw back to Dobbs) and ran right into Tulowitzki coming from first to second. Triple play.
This is a game that you MLB.tv and Extra Innings subscribers will want to get in on. I can't guarantee another triple play, but the Rockies are almost certainly going to break the record for most pitchers used in a non-extra inning game. Nominal starter Denny Bautista allowed the first three hitters he faced to reach and he's already about to be pulled in favor of Mark Redman.
