Is There a Bright Spot for the Troubled Rockies?

May 4 2009, 9:10 AM
The Colorado Rockies fell 1-0 to the San Francisco Giants Sunday after the Giants' Rich Aurilia got a 10th-inning single, batting a run in, according to United Press International. It was yet another depressing loss for a Rockies team that's clearly struggling early in the season. Still, there are a few bright spots on the team, including base-stealing rookie Dexter Fowler. When Fowler stole five bases in a single game last week against the Padres, he joined an elite group of 22 others in Major League Baseball history. If Fowler, who has nine steals in 18 games, could steal five again, he'd join only two other players to have achieved the feat--Eddie Collins and Alex Cole--according to The New York Times.
