Colorado Rockies Team Report - April 28

Postby WebHamster » Wed Apr 28, 2004 12:00 pm

(Sports Network) - The Rockies evened a three-game series with the Marlins with a wild 13-10 win last night. Vinny Castilla's go-ahead, three-run double highlighted a five-run eighth inning as the Rockies rallied to their second victory in three games. Castilla finished 2-for-5 with three RBI.

Todd Helton, Jeromy Burnitz, Charles Johnson and Matt Holliday each homered in the triumph. Burnitz, Johnson and Holliday hit consecutive home runs to start the third inning.

Jason Jennings gets the start in this afternoon's game. Jennings will try to rebound from a loss as he was blasted for eight hits and a career-high 10 runs in five innings last Friday against Houston at Coors Field. It was a rare home loss for the 25-year-old righthander, as Jennings is now 0-1 in two starts this season at Coors Field. The Rockies are 25-8 when he takes the mound in Denver.

Over his career, Jennings has an unblemished 3-0 mark against the Marlins with a 1.37 ERA (three earned runs, 19 2/3 innings) in three starts.

Shortstop Royce Clayton has a 10-game hitting streak. He's two games shy of tying his career-high hitting streak of 12 contests, set July 24 - August 5, 2000.

The Rockies have won five of the last eight meetings and are 14-7 versus Florida since the start of 2001. Colorado has won 11 of the last 13 from the Marlins at Coors Field.
