Welcome to the Rockies Magic Number blog. This will be your place for continuing updates on the Rockies playoff picture as well thoughts on previous games. I will be your humble host, Brian.
So last night the Rockies took on the Atlanta Braves in Atlanta. Jason Jennings squared off against Tim Hudson. Jennings pitched well only surrendering 2 runs on 8 hits. Unfortunately, Hudson decided to pitch out of his mind. He surrendered only one hit. That hit was to, none other than, Jason Jennings. So a more accurate description of last night's game would be Jason Jennings vs. Atlanta Braves rather than Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves.
Tonight Aaron Cook goes against Jose Sosa. Sosa has been roughed up on the year going 0-4 with an ERA of 6.89 and a WHIP of over 2. Meanwhile Cook has looked solid so far though the run support has been sorely lacking. Against a pitcher like Sosa look for the Rockies to have a big game.
