Rookie shortstop Josh Rutledge's average is dropping (it had to, he is not a .382 hitter) but his power is still there, as evidenced by his 6th homer in 20 games with the Rockies since his callup from Double-A Tulsa.
|Matt McBride called up and hits right away|
Now for bad news not related to pitching. Rutledge committed his fifth error and rookie catcher Wilin Rosario committed his tenth so those two have a lot of work to do in the field.
Double-A Tulsa only scored seven runs and it took them 12 innings to do so but in that game two hitting prospects had their best games in some time. Outfielder Corey Dickerson finished with three hits, including two homers (#8 & 9), and six RBI and third baseman Nolan Arenado homered (#9).
Arenado also made his 19th error of the season.
