In fairness, it appears a bad call at 2nd saved the Rockies asses that last half inning. 

I missed the replay, just going off Carp's comment, did anyone else see it?

I thought they just got him

In that case, I revise my comment.

The Rockies were lucky because of Ankiel's ground rule double that saved their asses.

So, reaching the base ahead of the throw doesn't cut it anymore?

Shouldn't you actually have to be touching the base?  It is the simplest of rules....

It's about that time ... the middle innings.

Do you think when Escalona showed up to the park today he thought, "I can't wait to step in against Zimmermann."?

Isn't sportsnyan going to call out Zimmermann for pitching meatballs down the middle, or does he only do that when they turn into hits?

Nope.  I'm one of those "you should actually tag the runner," none of this "in the vicinity" kinda guys.

Only hits.  Sportsnyan doesn't believe in any of that BABIP mumbo jumbo, he is only interested in tangible results.

Two factors here:

1.  I don't think he's on tonight; and
2.  He don't know crap about pitching.
