Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-04-22
--The Rockies went 31 consecutive innings without leading, a streak that ended when they went ahead 2-0 in the second Tuesday. It was the first time they led since the sixth inning Friday at Dodger Stadium, when they were ahead 3-0 before the Dodgers took a 4-3 lead in the seventh.

But they went 35 consecutive innings without leading at the end of an inning, a streak that ended when they scored four runs in the sixth to go ahead 7-6.

--The Rockies had a season-high 15 hits Tuesday (they had 14 on April 10 at Coors Field in a 10-3 win over the Phillies) and went 6-for-17 with runners in scoring position. They were 6-for-50 with runners in scoring position in their previous six games on this road trip.

--The Rockies bullpen pitched three innings Monday -- two by Jason Hammel and one by Jason Grilli -- and didn't allow any runs, just the second time in 12 games the bullpen has done that. On April 7, Manuel Corpas and Huston Street each worked one scoreless inning.

--When their three-game series with the Diamondbacks ends Wednesday, the Rockies will have played twice as many games at Chase Field (6) as they have at Coors Field (3).

--Twice in the first 10 games, the Rockies allowed two opposing players to homer twice in the same game. Felipe Lopez and Tony Clark of the Diamondbacks did it at Arizona in the season opener April 6. Manny Ramirez and Andre Ethier each hit two homers for the Dodgers in Los Angeles on April 18.

RHP Aaron Cook and LHP Glendon Rusch each gave up one of Lopez's and Clark's homers. Cook allowed Ramirez's two homers and one by Ethier, who hit his second homer off Alan Embree.

BY THE NUMBERS: 6.87 -- ERA for the Rockies bullpen, which had allowed 11 homers in 36 2/3 innings through April 19.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Our lineup is full of tough outs, one through eight, and it's one through nine when Marquis is in there." -- 3B Garrett Atkins, on the hitting prowess of RHP Jason Marquis, who was 3-for-5 with three RBIs and a double while winning his first two starts.
