Losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 8-2, on Monday night was bad enough.
Now, the Colorado Rockies are hoping they didn't also lose shortstop Trevor Story for any significant amount of time.
Story left the game while batting in the fourth inning after aggravating an elbow problem that surfaced while making a throw in the first inning.
Starter Jon Gray simply did not have it on Monday night. Gray gave up six runs in two-plus innings as the Dodgers scored two runs in the first and then chased Gray in a four-run third inning.
Gray lasted two-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits.
The Rockies expect to have more information on Story's condition on Tuesday.
