Friday was a busy day for the Colorado Rockies.
They shuffled their bullpen by releasing veteran right-hander Bryan Shaw and lefty Jake McGee. In addition, general manager Jeff Bridich said INF/OF Chris Owings, OF Matt Kemp and reliever Daniel Bard made the Opening Day roster.
On the field, Pinstripes beat Purple, 3-2 in an intrasquad game. After playing six innings, each side worked on the extra-inning situation of starting an inning with a runner at second base.
Both starting pitchers threw the ball pretty well.
Antonio Senzatela went 3-and-a-third innings and gave up two runs on seven hits with no walks and one strikeout.
Austin Goudeau, also a right-hander, lasted three inning and surrendered one run on four hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out two.
Charlie Blackmon homered in his first intrasquad action of the summer. Owings had two doubles and also walked and scored a pair of runs.
The Rockies will play intrasquad games on Saturday and Sunday.
