What You Need to Know

Weekend Wrap-Up, 6/23

by Daniel Rathman


The Weekend Takeaway
It’s hard enough to win at Coors Field when you don’t gift the other team runs with defensive miscues and inattention. The Rockies didn’t make any fielding errors in Friday’s series opener, but they still lost 13-10, as the Brewers got the better end of the slugfest by outhitting their hosts 19-16.

Saturday was a different story.

The visitors committed the first defensive blunder of the afternoon, a botched fielding attempt on a ground ball by second baseman Rickie Weeks, and the Rockies eventually took advantage on a two-run single by Justin Morneau. That knock accounted for half of the home nine’s output in the middle match. The Brewers would equal it in the second inning alone.

McKenry supposedly tweaked his back on the play which is why he was bent over... but none of the other Rockies were paying attention either.

Arenado's loss has been pretty significant since the Rockies didn't have a backup third basemen and their experiments to put others there (Rutledge, Cuddyer, Culberson and even some LeMahieu) have had issues.

Arenado was absolutely another injury worth mentioning--thanks for noting that.

Arenado has absolutely been the key injury, the Rockies were 26-21 at the time, and have gone 8-20 since. It also led directly to Cuddyer's shoulder injury. (Happened while playing 3rd, which he hadn't done for years)
