Rockies’ manager, Jim Tracy said, “We gave a h**l of an effort against a very, very good baseball team with a lot at stake. What it simply boils down to is just a timely hit somewhere as that game was unfolding.”
At the bottom of sixth inning, Prince Fielder hit a solo homer towards centre-field to tie the game 1-1. The score-board remained level until the 10th inning as the batters struggled against the tricky throws of the pitchers. Nyjer Morgan walked
