The slumping Colorado Rockies were in town for the first game of a four game series.
They weren’t the only ones slumping.
I managed only one ball for the entire Pirates batting practice, thrown to me by Evan Meek. Evan, if you’re reading this – you’re the man.
I had plenty of opportunities, but the ball just wasn’t bouncing my way today.
That would change when the Rockies came out.
