Rockies Get Close – But Lose #7, Perfect Game Pitched!
ROCKIES LOSE 7 IN A ROWThe Rockies scored 8 runs last night against the Oakland A’s…They still lost. The A’s outscored the Rockies 10-8 last night at Coors Field. Todd Helton hit a first-inning grand slam and Michael Cuddyer added two home runs, but it wasn’t enough. That’s 7 losses in a row for Colorado. The Rox and A's play wrap up their series in Denver this afternoon. The game is at 1:10 on MLB.TV.
TULO RE-INURES LEG IN REHAB ASSIGNMENT
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left the game early yesterday in his rehab assignment in Colorado Springs after appearing to aggravate a groin injury. Before he left the game, Tulo hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat and singled in his second at-bat. He had hoped to join the Rockies either Sunday in Detroit or Tuesday in Philadelphia, but it all depends on whether or not he did re-injure himself.
- Matt Cain pitched the 22nd perfect game in major league history and first for the Giants, striking out a career-high 14 to beat the Houston Astros 10-0 last night.
