  16. Columbine
    These masonry flowers are all over the stadium. The state flower.

  20. Angel Pagan patrols left field for Giants.
  21. Boooooo.
  22. Top of 4th
    Giants take lead 1-0. The out-of-town scoreboard in right field.
  23. Bottom 5th
    Rox down 1-0 going to bottom of the fifth. Rally. Bases loaded for Arenado, above. He doubles scoring two to make it 5-1 Rockies. Reynolds, the next batter, also doubled to make it 7-1 Rockies. After a walk, the next guy singled to drive in two more. 9-1. 😀 Sorry @supercommonname
  24. Top 7th
    Gerardo Parra chased down a double as Giants score twice to chase De La Rosa. 7-3 Rockies...
  25. Seventh Inning Stretch
    Giants scored again so it's 7-4 heading to bottom of the 7th.
  26. A fan of Rockies killer Hunter Pence. Moments later Belt hit a two-run homer to make it 9-6 Rox. Bullpen! . @supercommonname
  27. Bottom of 8th
    D J LeMahieu reaches on a fielder choice...
  28. CarGo!
    ... And scored when Carlos Gonzales doubles home two insurance runs in bottom of the 8th. 11-6 Rockies. Will the bullpen hold in the 9th? 50/50.
  29. Rockies win 11-6!
    Bullpen survives, barely. Bye Coors Field! Until next time!
