Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-05-06
--C Chris Iannetta has not made an error since June 22, 2007, a span of 147 consecutive errorless games. It's the second-longest errorless streak by a Rockies position player, behind CF Cory Sullivan's 155-game stretch from July 19, 2005, to Aug. 29, 2006.

--The Rockies have not gone more than one game without a home run. They have played 25 games, and their four without a homer are non-consecutive games on April 13, April 22, April 27 and May 3.

--Manager Clint Hurdle said he would stick with six regulars in his lineup, leaving only left field and second base as spots where he will rotate players. The fixtures are 1B Todd Helton, SS Troy Tulowitzki, 3B Garrett Atkins, CF Dexter Fowler, RF Brad Hawpe and C Chris Iannetta. That means Seth Smith and Ryan Spilborghs will share time in left with Ian Stewart a possibility there, and Clint Barmes and Stewart will play second.

--The Rockies won a series opener on the road for the first time in six tries when they were victorious Monday.

--The Rockies' 1-0 loss in 10 innings Sunday at San Francisco was their first 1-0 loss since Aug. 1, 2006, against Milwaukee, and the first time they were shut out in extra innings since Sept. 6, 2006, when they lost 2-0 in 11 innings at San Diego.

BY THE NUMBERS: 0 -- Three-run homers or grand slams by the Rockies until C Chris Iannetta hit a slam May 4.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "In the bullpen, you have a lot of guys out there where you don't know what you are going to get. That's got to end." -- Manager Clint Hurdle, on the Rockies relievers.
