Last night’s win ended a two and a half month drought between home series wins, next accomplishment would be the elusive sweep. The team hasn’t swept an opponent since the four game sweep of the Astros at the end of may. You remember that series, the one that began with the double-header in which Dex went off, going 7-9 and a walk-off?
Ah, better days…
But that was then, a time in which we weren’t out of it (statistically that is), and this is now, a time in which a sweep would be nice but couldn’t help us break into the play-off picture unless the Dodgers, Giants, Diamondbacks and Padres announced they were boycotting the rest of the season.
The team DFA’d Mike Ekstrom to make room for Guillermo Moscoso to pitch today. Moscoso is 0-1 with an 8.23 ERA in two starts this season for the team. Ekstrom had a 6.32 ERA with the Rockies and a 2.64 ERA with CS this season.
Moscoso is needed to replace Pomeranz who has soreness in his left pectoral and biceps.
Game time is at 1:10 PM and isn’t being televised, thanks to the insane blackout rule that stops games from being shown on other networks even if Root isn’t showing them. It will be played on KOA 850.
