Rockies can’t pick up Moyer in home debut
DENVER — Age wasn’t the only major difference between the Rockies’ 49-year-old Jamie Moyer and the Giants’ 22-year-old Madison Bumgarner on Thursday afternoon. The biggest problem for Moyer was he had much less help.
The Rockies committed two errors in 5 2/3 innings behind Moyer and didn’t manage a hit while their starter was in the game. Bumgarner didn’t need much help. He held the Rockies to one run on three hits and forced 13 ground-ball outs in 7 1/3 innings of a 4-2 Giants victory at Coors Field.
Bumgarner (1-1) dominated a day after the Rockies blistered Giants pitching for 22 hits in a 17-8 victory. But the Giants took two of three in the series to open the Rockies’ home schedule and had outstanding pitching from Barry Zito — a four-hit shutout Monday — and Bumgarner. READ MORE>>>AlertMe
