DENVER — If the Colorado Rockies were a waiter at your favorite brunch spot Sunday, they would've started out the meal by reminding your party about the half-off Bloody Mary special, bringing out a tray full of drinks with just the right amount of bite and then complimenting your friend's girlfriend on her new wide-brimmed hat. Things were going great. Everybody was feeling good. At least until the waiter accidentally overturned an order of eggs neptune on your friend's girlfriend's sundress.
Bright spots have too often been obscured by blunders this season. That was the case again in Colorado's 10-7 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a game in which the Rockies squandered away leads of 4-0 and 6-1 to cap off a frustrating nine-game homestand.
