While everyone knows that Colorado is a powerful team, the only question that remains is to just how far they can take it. On Tuesday, the Colorado Rockies took an explosive victory against the Atlanta Braves. The NL-East leading team lost a bit of pride with such a loss. The hard pitching style that Colorado brought completely decimated the opposition, and solid batting came in and took care of the rest. Odds
At the plate, the Rockies have been potent all year long. They have some of the best pitchers in the business, who continue to deliver great games. During the game on Tuesday, Jorge De La Rosa came through for a solid win against the beat team of the NL. He pitched seven great innings. At the plate, the Colorado team was just as effective. Carlos Gonzalez hit his 26th home run during the game, contributing to the shrewd domination by his team. Scores
There were nine innings of play, and the Rockies were strong through them all. They started off great, finishing the game in much the same fashion. Seth Smith homered, and Eric Young had a career-high three hits. To close it up, Huston Street was there, as always, with superb pitching. He took his 12th save for the Rockies. The team is now 20 games over .500 at Coors Field.
The Braves have played amazing games all year long, but in recent weeks they have seemed a bit tired on the field. It is as if they are running out of steam, hopefully this isn’t the case. They have positioned themselves for a great finish to the 2010 season, all they need to do now is hold on and win a few more games. If any team can come back and make a legendary end to an epic season, it would be the Braves. Be sure and follow it all at Las Vegas Odds, home of the greatest sports betting information on the Web.
