The Rockies got clapt up tonight, y'all.

Through 6 innings it seemed like this was going to be a tight game, with both starters putting the game on lock down. It wouldn't last forever, though, with the Diamondbacks exploding for 7 runs in the 6th and 7th innings to put the game well out of reach.

Before I describe the offensive onslaught, though, let's give it up for Jeremy Hellickson. Poor guy has been taking sass all year for having the nerve to be traded to the Diamondbacks, and then not being the second coming of Teddy Roosevelt. He was dealing tonight, though, going a full 7 innings (his first time this year!), giving up only 3 hits and 1 run while striking out 6. Jeremy spoke in class today, indeed.

Anyways, back to the offense. When AJ Pollock led off the 6th inning, the D-backs were down 1-0. He instantly changed that with a solo home run. Then a bunch of other guys did stuff and Arizona ended up with a 7-1 lead going into the 8th. Yay! The last run was scored in the 8th when Nolan Arenado clanked a routine grounder like an idiot.

This was a good way to start a new series. Let's keep the ball rolling, eh?
