Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-04-29
--The Rockies are 0-5 in one-run games, with three of those losses coming at home. They are 0-7 in games decided by one or two runs, with four of those defeats at home.

--RHP Manuel Corpas has been scored upon in three of his past four games and four of his past six appearances. He has retired just five of the 11 first batters he has faced.

--LHP Jorge De La Rosa, who is 0-2 with a 3.57 ERA, remained winless despite pitching well Tuesday against San Diego (two runs in six innings). In his past three outings, De La Rosa is 0-1 with a 2.50 ERA, walking 10 and striking out 17 in 18 innings.

--INF Clint Barmes drew his first walk of the season Monday after 52 at-bats. The walk came on his final plate appearance, and he walked again on his first plate appearance Tuesday. Barmes went without a walk longer than any player in the majors with at least 50 at-bats except Seattle's Yuniesky Betancourt (72 at-bats through Tuesday) and San Francisco's Bengie Molina (71).

--The Rockies are 3-3 this season at Chase Field, where they have three games remaining beginning Sept. 18. Last year, the Rockies went 1-8 at Chase Field while losing 15 of 18 games to the Diamondbacks. Losing the rubber game of a series April 22 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: 121 -- At-bats without a home run, including 58 this season, for OF Ryan Spilborghs, who ended that drought with a two-run shot in the third inning April 26. It was Spilborghs' first homer since he hit two on July 4 against the Marlins at Coors Field.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's time for him to just accept it, 'OK, this is what I've been. How do I get back to what I can be?' Take the next step. There's no bad luck involved. These are things he can control and get back in place. He can be very productive out there and very good." -- Manager Clint Hurdle on struggling RHP Ubaldo Jimenez.
