Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-04-24
--The Rockies bullpen has allowed 13 of 29 inherited runners to score.

--Colorado has homered in 12 of 14 games with two streaks of six consecutive games with a homer, the last of which ended Wednesday. Overall, the Rockies have hit 19 home runs, but 15 have come with the bases empty and the other four with one runner aboard.

--The Rockies are 3-3 this season at Chase Field, where they have played two three-game series and will return for a final one Sept. 18. Last year, the Rockies went 1-8 at Chase Field while losing 15 of 18 games to the Diamondbacks. The loss kept the Rockies from winning back-to-back series at Chase Field for the first time since 2007 -- May 21-23 and Aug. 31-Sept. 2.

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

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.
