Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-05-14
--The Rockies have scored 10 or more runs in five of their seven wins at home this season. They have hit at least one homer in 12 of their 13 wins.

--Rockies pitchers have made seven errors, one fewer than the combined total of the club's infielders.

--RHP Ubaldo Jimenez set a club record for assists by a pitcher with six Tuesday night.

--3B Garrett Atkins went 0-for-4 with a walk Wednesday, extending his hitless streak to 24 at-bats.

--2B Clint Barmes broke an 0-for-10 slide Wednesday with a run-scoring single in the seventh inning, and he flared a single to center in the ninth.

--Rockies owner Dick Monfort said manager Clint Hurdle, who is coming under more criticism with the team off to an 11-17 start, will not be fired before the Rockies begin a 10-game trip Friday.

"To say he would be (fired after this homestand) would be inaccurate," Monfort said. "If you make the change, what is going to be better? And we are not going to make change for change's sake. If I felt it was going to make the difference in winning more games, we would do something. But I just don't think that's the case right now."

--The Rockies on Tuesday began a stretch of 16 consecutive days before their next scheduled off day May 28. They will then play 17 consecutive days before an off day June 15, meaning they are playing 33 games in 34 days.

BY THE NUMBERS: 54 -- Career wins for RHP Aaron Cook, who had been tied for second place in franchise history with Pedro Astacio and now needs four victories to reach 58 and tie Jason Jennings for the most Rockies wins all-time.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I sleep in it a lot. Until I have to (use the bathroom). And then I get up. It definitely takes away from of the soreness. It definitely doesn't hurt. And I do anything I can to help." -- 1B Todd Helton, 35, on the hyperbaric chamber he has been using since his back surgery in late September.
