Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Marco Scutaro knocked in the game-winning run
with a bloop single into right field in the bottom of the 11th inning and the
Colorado Rockies edged the Washington Nationals, 11-10, in the finale of a
four-game series at Coors Field.
After stranding the potential winning run on base in the ninth and 10th
innings, the Rockies finally got the job done in the 11th. Facing Nats
reliever Craig Stammen (3-1), Jonathan Herrera laced a one-out double off the
base of the wall in left-center and moved to third on a long fly out by Dexter
Fowler two batters later.
Scutaro got ahead in the count, 2-0, before taking a couple huge swings and
misses to even it at 2-2. Stammen then left one over the plate and Scutaro
sliced it into right to score Herrera for the walkoff win.
Adam Ottavino (2-0) earned the win with two scoreless innings of relief work
for the Rockies, who salvaged a split of this four-game set.
