Young Jr. homered again, finished with two hits, extending his stellar work at the plate lately (22-for-46 for a .478 average). He doesn't have to and can't remain this hot the rest of the season but the more he shows his hit tool the more attractive he makes himself to the Rockies or some other team for future employment. His batting average is now sitting at .323. He is building security and making money right now.
Second baseman Chris Nelson singled twice and drove in two three runs to continue his best season. The Rockies first-round pick in 2004 is not starter quality and that's disappointing for a player the organization once spent the ninth-overall pick on but Nelson has saved his career and should have work with some team in 2013 as a capable reserve infielder.
The Rockies did not receive acceptable pitching for 6 1/3 innings on Wednesday against the Brewers. Guillermo Moscoso allowed four runs in four frames and Carlos Torres gave up two more runs in the next two innings.
After Matt Reynolds threw two-thirds of a frame, rookie reliever Will Harris, still with that new-player smell on him, threw two scoreless, hit-less, walk-less frames for his first...major...league....win.
Harris, as written here before, was a ninth-round pick in the 2006 draft and will turn 28 later this month. He persevered, produced in the minors and made it to the majors. Two days ago in his major-league debut he allowed three runs in one inning but rebounded like a pro Wednesday.
Trevor Story had an impressive night at Low-A as well, not only knocking out two hits but drawing two walks. That's progress for a player with solid power potential for a shortstop but one still needing more polish with his overall batting.
Outfielders Tim Wheeler and Charlie Blackmon combine to go hit-less, as in 0-for-10 at Triple-A.
More later as games finish.
