Rockies lead wild card by 2 games
The Denver Post
After his solid, seven-inning outing Sunday afternoon, Aaron Cook handed over a two-run lead to the Rockies’ bullpen for some tender loving care.
Six batters and three strikeouts later, the Rockies had their 4-2 victory over the Giants, extending their lead in the National League wild-card race to two games.
“Management has pieced together a bullpen that is really nailing it down,” said Cook, who improved to 10-3 on a day when his trusty sinker coaxed the Giants’ hitters into 16 groundball outs.
On a day when the Rockies’ hitters were relatively quiet – sacrifice flies by Troy Tulowitzki and Yorvit Torrealba produced two of the four runs – there was little room for reliever error.
It turns out there was none at all.
