Rough day for Morales
The elbow injury to right-hander Greg Reynolds, who was hit by a line drive a few days ago and is waiting for swelling to subside before pitching, touched off a chain reaction that led to left-handed reliever Franklin Morales starting agianst the D-backs on Sunday at Tucson Electric Park. It didn’t work out for Morales and the Rockies.
Morales gave up eight earned runs on seven hits, including home runs by Rusty Ryal and Stephen Drew, in 1 2/3 innings. He also walked two and balked once before leaving with an 8-0 deficit.
