Arenado lifts Rox to 5-4 win over Giants in 9th
Question of the Day
DENVER (AP) - Nolan Arenado thought for sure his liner to left field was gone.
Nope, hit off the top of the wall and bounced back onto the warning track.
Walkoff double. Walkoff homer. Doesn’t really matter - it was still a walkoff win for the Colorado Rockies.
It’s the second straight game the Rockies have won in walkoff fashion, with Justin Morneau hitting a two-run homer in the 10th against San Diego on Sunday.
“Kind of got away from (walkoff hits),” cracked Carlos Gonzalez, who scored the winning run. “We’re trying to pick it up a bit.”
Just another crazy game at Coors Field.
With Troy Tulowitzki at third and Gonzalez on first, Arenado fouled off slider after slider from closer Sergio Romo (3-1). Finally, Romo hung a 2-2 slider that Arenado caught just right. He figured it was gone and sort of went into a half-run.
The ball hit off the yellow portion of the fence and came back onto the field. Arenado started motoring toward second.
No matter, though, Gonzalez was sprinting all the way, despite a sore shin and a balky knee. He easily slid into home to help the Rockies win and pull to within two games of the Giants in the division.
Gonzalez even had a blood stain on his right knee, courtesy of his slide.
“I didn’t even know I was bleeding,” Gonzalez said. “You’re trying to do anything possible and give all you’ve got.”
“Told him he was going to get a big hit and stick with it,” Tulowitzki recounted.
