Kaz Comes Through Rockies One Game From Advancing Beat Phillies 10-5

The Colorado Rockies and the Philadelphia Phillies both sent rookie starters to the mound to start Game Two of the N.L.D.S. with Colorado ahead in the series 1-0. Both Rockies starter Franklin Morales and Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick were both overcome by the moment and were terribly ineffective. Morales lasted just 3 innings giving up 3 runs Kendrick 3 2/3 innings allowing five runs. The factor that separated the two teams were their respective bullpens. Arizona's limited the damage to just 2 more runs, Philadelphia's gave up 5 including a grand slam from Kaz Matsui off of the man who was supposed to start Game 4 Kyle Lohse. Outcome: Colorado 10 Philadelphia 5 and the Wild Card Rockies are just one game away from their first N.L.C.S. appearance.

Second baseman Matsui was just a single away from hitting for the cycle. Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Holliday hit back to back jacks on consecutive pitches in the first. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel will send the pitcher to the mound that kept his 2001 Cleveland Indians from advancing in the Post Season veteran Jamie Moyer, to try get his club jump started. Colorado will counter with another rookie Ubaldo Jiminez.
