|Tyler Colvin home-run binge continues|
Colvin hit two homers and now has 13 on the season and 6 in his last 9 games. He has those 13 in only 180 at-bats and hitting them off Strasburg makes his Friday even more impressive.
Fowler hit no. 11, five more than he has ever had before in a season. He now has more homers than doubles (10) and triples (9).
Not lost in that victory was Drew Pomeranz's strong effort - 6 innings of one-hit, shutout ball. Since returning from Triple-A, Pomeranz has allowed only 3 hits and one unearned run in 12 1/3 innings. He has only struck out 7 and has walked 5 but no earned runs over that span of work is highly commendable considering his performance was rough in the minors.
So is Colvin on his way to 20-25 home runs? Is he a future star in Colorado or is he a Seth Smith clone, someone whom fans and the front office believe only needs more time to blossom only to later prove that the player is more effective as a backup?
Is Fowler going to maintain his .288 average and end up with 17 or more homers? Or is he going to remain an enigma?
The Rockies' answers to those questions will determine if they listen to trade offers with an open mind or not
