Yes, the Reds did rally to pull out a win against the Rockies in Saturday's weather-delayed game.

On Sunday, however, the Rockies may not have been perfect, but they did hold on for a 10-9 win over the Reds, giving them two wins in the three-game series. What's new? The Reds have won a series at Coors Field only once in the last seven years. They took 3 of 4 from the Rockies May 30-June 2, 2016. They also split four games July 3-6, 2017.

At the Plate

Rockies catcher Tony Wolters had two hits on Sunday. That gave him back-to-back multi-hit games for the second time this season. It also raised his average to .295. Big deal? Well, it's the fourth highest average for a Rockies catcher who had a minimum of 200 bats in a season in franchise history.

On the Mound

Antonio Senzatela allowed eight runs in 5 1/3 innings, but still came away with the win in Sunday's 10-9 victory against the Reds. He became only the fifth pitcher in Rockies history to allow seven or more runs in a game and be credited with a victory -- the second to allow eight runs.

FYI

Wade Davis gets his share of heat, which is the life of a closer. Any failure is highlighted because it usually means a win is turned into a loss. Davis, however, is 14-for-16 in save situations. The two blown saves stand out, possibly, because not only were they ugly, but they came in back-to-back games at Coors Field. Overall, however, he has put together solid efforts when asked to protect a lead.

Consider, there are 54 big-league pitchers who have blown three or more saves this season, but only 20 pitchers in the two leagues who have 14 or more saves.
