The Colorado Rockies at last gave Aaron Cook plenty of run support, and they did it by rewriting their history of ineffectiveness against Ricky Nolasco.
Four home runs is normally enough for the Colorado Rockies to win at home. They weren’t enough against Anibal Sanchez and the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night.
The Florida Marlins were one strike from a much-needed victory Monday night. Instead, they lost for the 10th time in 11 games, falling 7-4 to the Colorado Rockies.
Florida Marlins fans booed slumping Hanley Ramirez when he struck out in the eighth inning. Two batters later, they demanded a curtain call from Mike Stanton.
The Florida Marlins gave their biggest crowd since opening day little to cheer about on Saturday when a four-game winning streak ended with a 3-1 loss to Colorado.
The toll from throwing 123 pitches showed on Anibal Sanchez. The Florida Marlins right-hander wore one big bag of ice on his right shoulder, another on his right arm and yet another on his right thigh as he settled into a chair with a grimace.
