So, Chris Volstad. This was not a great Rockies lineup he was facing, to be sure, but that was a great performance. It simply was. Six base runners in 6.2 innings? You’ll take that every time, and you’ll usually win. Which Volstad finally did for the first time in over a year. Wins and losses, as a stat, are utterly meaningless … unless you’ve gone over a year without a win. Then it matters a little. Good for you, Chris.
Brett Jackson also had a strikeout-less game, which is something to celebrate (he’s on quite the hot streak, actually).
Today’s enhancement might not mean much to you if you weren’t watching the game, but, man, it’s just ridiculous that Carlos Gonzalez got an error on one of the best throws I’ve ever seen on a tag-up from third.
