Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-04-15
--The Rockies were held to one hit in Monday's 4-0 loss at Chicago, the 16th time in franchise history that has happened. They have been no-hit twice -- by Al Leiter of the Marlins on May 11, 1996, and by Hideo Nomo of the Dodgers on Sept. 17, 1996, in the only no-hitter thrown at Coors Field. The last time the Rockies were held to one hit was Sept. 6 at Coors Field by the Astros' Roy Oswalt. Ted Lilly, Angel Guzman, Aaron Heilman and Kevin Gregg became the fifth pitching combination to limit the Rockies to one hit.

--After scoring 30 runs while going 3-1 in their first four games, the Rockies have been held to nine runs during their three-game losing streak. In those three games, opposing relievers have held the Rockies to two hits and no runs in 10 innings with three walks and 12 strikeouts.

--The nine walks allowed Monday by the Rockies pitchers, including an intentional one by LHP Glendon Rusch, equaled the total they allowed in the three-game series with the Phillies over the weekend. One of the walks in that series also was intentional.

BY THE NUMBERS: 3 -- Home runs in 19 at-bats through six games for SS Troy Tulowitzki, who hit three home runs in 151 at-bats in 39 games last year before the All-Star break when he was on the disabled list twice with injuries.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I was trying to go down and in. I just didn't get it in. You miss your spot in the big leagues, they do that to you." -- RHP Huston Street on the 1-1 fastball PH Matt Stairs hit for a game-winning two-run homer on April 12.
