BB Big League Rockies: Welcome
We are off to a good start to the season!
Here are some season highlights to date as of 6/17:
5/8/12 Rockies 20 - Blue Jays 5 - Great game for the Rockies. Notable performances from Tyler and Brady as they both reached base four out of five plate appearances and scored 4 times. Jacob, Brennan and Andy also with strong performances getting on base 4 times.
5/12/12 Rockies 15 - Athletics 3 - We had some strong at bats in this game along with strong defense. No errors on our part per the score book. Unfortunately for us, but good for them, we say good bye to Brady and Tyler as they made the freshman baseball team. Congratulations guys!.
5/19/12 Rockies 16 - Twins 10 - Two or three guys playing in their first games after missing the first couple of games because of track and field meet conflicts. Rockies don't miss a beat jumping on the Twins early with a 10 run first inning. We sent 14 guys to the plate in the first inning. Love the offense!
5/20/12 Rockies 12 - Dbacks 6 - Strong performance in our second of back to back games. Started out strong again putting up 6 runs in our half of the first inning. Nate flew around the bases and had a triple in this game. Devon with a rocket that also turned out to be a three bagger! Tanner reached base four times including legging out a "K" with a dropped third strike.
5/31/12 Rockies 10 - Cardinals 10 - This was a tough fought back and forth game. Half a win is better than a loss :) This was our first game after a 10 day layoff! Mike T's first game with us and he got a hit in his first at bat. Brett with a strong game at the plate going 3 for 4. Strong game for the Rockies in the field as we only had one error.
6/2/12 Rockies 20 - Mets 10 - We started out June with a bang! The highlight of this game was our 14 run outburst in the third inning. We sent 19 batters to the plate in this inning. Brett and Zack each had two hits in the inning. That is something you don't see everyday! They finished off a combined 7 for 7 for a perfect day at the plate and each scored four times. Nate and Devon also crossed the plate multiple times scoring three runs each.
6/3/12 Angels 16 - Rockies 10 - Our first loss of the season. Darn those back to back games when you run out of pitching! (Note official league standings show a tie in this game, league made a mistake.) The good news is that we still scored 10 runs, despite having sluggish bats with only three hits for the good guys.
6/6/12 Rockies 15 - Dodgers 5 - Back on the winning track after our first setback of the season. We had strong first and second innings putting up six and five runs respectively. Brennan and Nate with three hits each.
6/11/12 Rockies 11 - Diamondbacks 0 - Two great highlights in this game. First and foremost - a complete game no hitter pictched by Mike S. Brennan went yard for our first home run of the year with an estimated blast of 310 feet to dead center field. Jacob was an RBI machine in his first two at bats knocking in three, including two in his first at bat against an ex varsity pitcher. Devon made some outstanding defensive plays at third base to preserve the no hitter.
6/16/12 Rockies 8 - Brewers 7 - Very close well played game. Brett started our offense off with a triple. Bryce with some great plays in the outfield. The Brewers made some nice defensive plays to keep this game close. Devon with four solid innings on the mound. Andy in his first game back after a broken wrist comes back and gets beaned in the elbow in his first at bat. Way to take one for the team Andy!
6/17/12 - Rockies 16 - Tigers 5 - This was a back and forth game early, until we jumped on the Tigers for 9 runs in the 6th. Bryce had two hits in the inning to lead the good guys. Pitching load was shared between Tanner, Bryce, Brett and Ben. Brett with a couple doubles to go with a single. Great all around team performance with contributions from everyone.
Pool play begins on 6/23/12 at 4 PM with another game against the Tigers. The Tran's have the snack for this game. 6/30/12 is another pool game with a game against the Twins at 11 AM. Shads have the snack for this game.
The coaches would like to have a practice at some point during the week. Watch your e-mails.
Happy Fathers Day
