The Colorado Rockies were due for a clunker.
After having already won the road series against division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the odds were not in their favor with youngster Antonio Senzatela making just his third start of the season against Zack Greinke who has been one of the best pitchers in baseball for most of the last decade.
Senzatela made a few key mistakes but was mostly fine, keeping his club in the game. But Greinke was the best version of himself, dominating the Rockies offense by dancing around the edges with each of his offerings while getting a pretty generous strike zone.
That combination led to just one run on two hits against him, the sole blemish coming on a fifth-inning solo home run off the bat of Ian Desmond, his 19th round-tripper of the season.
