Colorado Rockies Notes, Quotes 2009-05-16
--Hitting coach Don Baylor is in a Denver hospital with pneumonia and did not travel with the Rockies to Pittsburgh, the first stop on a three-city, 10-game road trip. It is not known when Baylor might rejoin the team.

--The Rockies won Friday for just the second time in 19 games when the opposition scores first, improved to 2-5 in series openers on the road and 3-12 in games decided by two or fewer runs, including 2-4 in two-run games.

--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.
