DENVER – The Colorado Rockies were out for revenge against the St. Louis Cardinals in a three-game set at Coors Field but were unable to find it, getting throttled in the finale by a score of 12-3.

Other than two standout innings, the Rockies got pretty well outplayed by the Cardinals in the series but did manage to take a game against a team they always struggle against.

Matt Carpenter led off the first by hitting a high fly ball that was just out of the reach of a leaping Carlos Gonzalez in right, bouncing off the wall for a double. Anderson got a groundout and a strikeout to freeze Carpenter at second and, in a full count, was a strike away escaping any damage but Tyler O’Neil went down and put the barrel on one that looked like it would fall just short off the bat.

Drew E. Creasman was born in Grand Junction, Colorado and currently resides in Boulder, CO. He is a full time Rockies beat writer managing editor of   Education: Studied Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Colorado along with Music History and Composition.   Career: After six years as an independent musician and doing sporadic political work, I began to write about the Colorado Rockies for PurpleRow.com in the winter of 2013. Three years later, I came to BSN Denver to run the Rockies content. In short time, I found myself interviewing GM Dan O’Dowd and forging relationships with countless individuals in and around the organization.   A few highlights include hosting the only daily Rockies talk show in the world, a podcast that has welcomed Nolan Arenado and Jon Gray among others, and our wall-to-wall coverage of the 2017 Wild Card Game. I’ve also been a regular on 850 koa, 104.3 The Fan, Mile High Sports Radio and numerous podcasts.   Most Memorable Sports Moment: Game 3 of the 2007 NLDS. Ubaldo Jimenez, blackout, and the Rockies win their first postseason series.   The finest sports book I’ve ever read: Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella.   One sports movie I can’t live without: One!? Just one!? Ok … Sugar. But Field of Dreams and Friday Night Lights come incredibly close.   Most memorable experience as a reporter: Either the aforementioned Arenado interview or, and this is an odd one, spending time swapping stories with other reporters at Marc Stout’s going-away party.   The sport that started it all: Clearly baseball. I’ve been watching baseball since before I can actually remember watching baseball. It’s just always been a part of me. I can still recall the feeling of wanting to be old enough to play T-ball. I love other sports, but I had loved and played baseball for years before I was even aware anything else existed.
