|Jorge De La Rosa doesn't get the credit he deserves.|
The Rockies called up the first baseman on Tuesday and he made an impact in his first start on Wednesday. In the bottom of the 6th inning, with the Rockies trailing 2-1, Royals starter Danny Duffy got two quick outs, and nearly three, but Nolan Arenado reached base on a throwing error. After a base hit and a walk, the Rockies suddenly had the bases loaded.
That is when McBride made his mark. He drilled the first pitch he saw from Duffy over the left-center field wall. The only question was whether it was going to have enough height to get out of the park. It did, and suddenly the Rockies had a 5-2 lead.
