Jackson rocked as D-backs fall to Rockies

April 27, 2010 by  

The Colorado Rockies today evened the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at one game each. The Rockies scored more than twice as many runs as the D-backs had hits. The D-backs were unable to get to starter Ubaldo Jimenez who has had a spectacular season so far including a no-hitter. Jimenez went six scoreless innings today allowing only two hits and walking two while striking out six and lowering his season ERA to 0.79.

The D-backs sent Edwin Jackson to the mound and the Arizona starter was not effective. Jackson lasted only 2.1 innings allowing 10 runs on 11 hits and walking two. Jackson saw his ERA raise from 3.81 to 6.67 on the season. Jackson was relieved by Blaine Boyer who also struggled going 2 innings and allowing two runs on three hits and four walks. The bright spot for the D-backs staff was reliever Bob Howry who has struggled to find his groove this year, but tonight was effective going 2.2 scoreless innings and only allowing two hits and one walk.

Carlos Gonzalez once again hurt his former team going 3-for-5 with five runs batted in and is now hitting .342 on the season. Justin Upton had one of the five hits on the night for the D-backs and knocked in their only run which was Upton’s 7th of the season.

The D-backs will send Kris Benson to the mound tomorrow night to try to get the series win and to close back to within one game of .500 on the season.
