The Colorado Rockies have won two consecutive games, beating the San Diego Padres 12-7 in a freaky game yesterday. Dexter Fowler, the team’s impressive rookie center fielder, tied a major league rookie record by stealing five bases (via The Denver Post). But it wasn’t all good, as outfielder Brad Hawpe was taken to the hospital after being hit in the neck by a pickoff throw, according to The Associated Press.
This is the second consecutive game in which the team’s offense exploded. The first came after shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was benched because of poor hitting, according to the Post.
