|Todd Helton waits another day for hit no. 2,500|
Reynolds become a Rockie, then Evan Longoria went to Tampa Bay, Clayton Kershaw went to the Dodgers, Tim Lincecum went to the Giants, and Max Scherzer.
Well, on Saturday night at Coors Field, Reynolds proved that he is a better player than all of those guys. Just kidding. The Rockies, however, made him look just as dominant as those guys. He returned to Coors Field and pitched like he had never pitched before. At least when he was wearing purple pinstripes.
Reynolds went eight innings. He gave up three runs, two of which came in the 8th with the game well in hand. He gave up seven hits, walked none and struck out five. The brilliance was something that Rockies fans never had a chance to see. Unfortunately for those fans, the first time they got to see it came against the Rockies.
