Friday night, the Colorado Rockies started off their nine-game, three-city road trip in Senzational fashion.
Right-hander Antonio Senzatela came on in the second inning when starter Tyler Anderson had trouble catching his breath. Previous to that, while warming up before that inning, Anderson felt a tweak but worked through it before the heart issue came up.
Enter Senzatela, who threw 3-and-two-thirds scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and one walk while striking out four.
At the plate, Senzatela's double in the fifth inning brought Gerardo Parra home and that turned out to be the only run of the game.
Game two of the series is Saturday, April 28 at 4:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
