Dexter Fowler hit a sac-fly in the bottom of the 9th and the Rockies beat the Pirates 5-4 last night at Coors Field. I'll take any opportunity these days to report that the Rockies have won another game! I know that they have NO chance of salvaging the season at this point, but any glimmer of hope for next year keeps me interested for now....when does Football start?

The game was delayed 53 minutes because of rain. The Rockies have still lost 2 of their past 3. Tonight the Rockies and Pirates play again in Denver. The game is at 6:40 on Root Sports.

ROCKIES INFIELDER HOSPITALIZED

Rockies infielder Chris Nelson was hospitalized Monday night and underwent tests for an irregular heartbeat. He remained hospitalized overnight on an IV drip. Nelson's condition concerned and surprised teammates. They had no idea anything was wrong until he was absent during the team's pregame stretch.
