I don't know how we won that.
Despite suddenly coming to life and hitting six home runs, the offense still wasted many opportunities, and the umpires made it hard, but somehow we won it in 11 innings. As Angel Pagan would say, Happy Flight! Day off tomorrow, and then the offense will fall right back to sleep on Friday night against the Wahoos.

One of the beautiful parts of the great game of Baseball is ripping a guy one night, and then eating crow for it the next day. After he failed in a crucial situation last night, he hit was the hero today with the a grand slam in the 11th.

TIP OF THE CAP: emoticon

Michael Morse: The other guy in the lineup who socked a pair of bombs. Remember, his three-ron shot in the third was the hit that tied things up.

Brandon Hicks: Hicks went quiet for a couple weeks, but he decided to join in on the Coors Field slugfest with a home run, as he went 3-for-6.

Boch: When Hicks was called out on strikes by Chris Conroy in the fourth, Boch did what any good manager would do when his player vehemently disagreed with a strike call, and that is take the bullet and get tossed.

Brandon Belt: Of course, he wanted to hit one out too. Make that seven home runs for Belt.

Matt Cain: It wasn't his best outing, but he labored through six innings, and he mixed in a couple of hits at the plate.

I guess old Bob is tired of playing the 4:00 bingo game down at the home, so he decided to call a balk to ensure that this game went extra innings.
At least once a series, he'll find a way to inject himself into the game and become the center of attention. Casilla clearly didn't move his shoulder, but Bob, who likely had family in the stands since he is a Denver resident wanted to make an impact.
Darren Daulton said it perfectly in 1993. "Bob Davidson is one of those impact umpires. In my opinion, the game was on ESPN and he couldn't wait to suit up and make an impact. He's one of those guys, if you go to his house, there are a lot of pictures of himself on the wall and none of his family. We call him Balkin' Bob, because he's always waiting for an opportunity to make an impact on the game."
Spot on, and last year, he even called a balk with no one on base.

Bob, I've been saying this for more than three years now, RETIRE!!!!!


Dinger: Sorry, Purple dude, your antics didn't work today.
