Tyler Colvin continued his lots-of-bang-for-the-buck season with a homer, triple and three RBI. He has 43 extra-base hits in 310 at-bats this season. This is his best season as a professional.
Colvin played at Clemson, also the school of the Rockies' 2010 first-round pick, outfielder Kyle Parker, who is playing well at High-A Modesto this season.
Third baseman Chris Nelson and shortstop Jon Herrera were consistently good, knocking out three hits apiece but it was rookie catcher Wilin Rosario, who was just as fun to watch for fans with three strikeouts and a two-run homer, his 21st. Rosario, ever so talented but raw, also made his 12th error of the season.
Josh Rutledge hit. 349 a year ago at High-A. Now, he's gone from Double-A straight to the majors where he's hitting.....344. A rapid ascent to a dream-like-pro-debut campaign.
Troy Tulowitzki homered and singled at Double-A Tulsa on his rehabilitation stop in the minors.
Outfielder David Dahl doubled twice for Grand Junction and now has 20 two-bag hits in just 59 games to go with his 10 triples and six homers.
