Rockies blanked again despite effective pitching

Tim Hudson befuddles Rockies except for one
Even when the poor-pitching Rockies throw the ball well they lose, at least in Atlanta where Colorado drops the final two games of the series by identical 1-0 scores.

Jhoulys Chacin didn't show his best self Thursday as he was peppered for seven hits and walked three in 3 1/3 innings, surrendering one unearned run but that mess and that run cost him and his team the game after Tim Hudson seven shutout innings for the Braves and three relievers finished off the Rockies.

Charlie Blackmon
On a night when the lineup could not dent Hudson or his pals for a run, former Georgia Tech player Charlie Blackmon went 4-for-4 for Colorado.

Rockies' Prospects Spotlight

Josh Outman
Josh Outman threw seven shutout innings for Double-A Tulsa in the Texas League playoffs.

Outman recorded an ERA of 9.00 in 31 innings with the Rockies earlier this season but his ERA in his last three starts is an eye-popping 0.79.

One night after Nolan Arenado homered, another solid Driller hitting prospect Corey Dickerson homered.

One game after High-A pitcher Christian Bergman went seven innings, allowing three runs in the California League playoffs for Modesto, starter Josh Mueller could not get out of the second inning, giving up four runs in 1 1/3 frames.

Outfielder Rafael Ortega, however, was hot again, homering for the second time in the series, finishing 3-for-3 and bumping his series' average to .714.

Star prospect David Dahl
At Grand Junction, outfielder Carl Thomore, who has struggled since drafted in 2011, had three hits Wednesday. On Thursday, outfielder David Dahl, who has dominated since being drafted in June, hit two homers and finished with three hits.

On the season, Dahl, in 67 games is hitting .379 with 22 doubles, 10 triples, nine homers and 57 RBI.

Question - is Dahl the best first-year prospect the organization has ever had? Weigh in if you so choose.
