Chris Iannetta shines as Colorado Rockies rout St. Louis Cardinals, 15-4 – MLB Update
Colorado Rockies’ catcher, Chris Iannetta had a notable day as he went 4-for-5 including two homers and six RBIs in the Rockies’ 15-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Coors Field, Colorado on May 28.
Iannetta was satisfied with his performance. He commented on the game and said, “That was fun. I felt like what Tulo and CarGo do on a daily basis.”
The Rockies started their first inning with a blast as they put six runs on the score-board and got an initial 6-0 lead. Dexter Fowler, Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, Todd Helton, Ryan Spilborghs and Eric Young Jr. each singled during first inning to
complete a six-run campaign. In the second inning, the Rockies extended their lead 7-0 when Spilborghs singled to centre-field and Tulowitzki posted a single run.
No score was added in the third inning but the fourth inning again went in favour of the Rockies as they stepped on the gas and blasted five runs to get a 12-0 lead. On the other side, the Cardinals’ batters failed to score any run until the fourth inning.
Iannetta struck a one-run homer (384 feet) towards left-field while Gonzalez, Helton, Ty Wigginton and Spilborghs each contributed four runs collectively in the fourth inning.
The Cardinals took their first run in the fifth inning to reduce the lead 12-1 when Ryan Theriot was grounded out to third base and Tony Cruz scored a single run. The sixth inning passed without score. Alfredo Amezaga hit a sacrifice fly to right-field and
Fowler added a run in the seventh inning to move the score-card 13-1.
The Rockies’ Manager, Jim Tracy was pleased with the way his team batted right through the game. Speaking to reporters, he said, “It's in there, it's in that clubhouse -- the capability of doing that is in that clubhouse. It doesn't have to be the extent
of 15 runs a day, but if the consistency, as far as the performance throughout the course of the lineup.”
Eighth inning was full of scoring opportunities for both teams. The Cardinals scored three runs while the Rockies posted two runs to take their lead 15-4. Pete Kozma, Jon Jay and Tyler Greene each put a single run for the Cardinals. While Iannetta hit his
second homer (414 feet) of the game to left-field and Wigginton scored the second run during the eighth inning. The ninth inning was score-less.
