Game 23 Recap 4/24 | Guardians Fall 0-6 to Rockies

April 24, 2023

3 Observations from the game.

1 – Where’s the hitting?

Steven Kwan had three hits, and Myles Straw provided the other single.  That’s it.  Why Will Brennan can’t get more at-bats against lefties is now a mistake as Oscar Gonzalez should not be playing every day.  Guardians did a lot of early swing lazy outs, they have to put more pressure on the bases.

2 – Cal Quantrill’s home dominance no more

Quantrillwho did pitch well in Detroit in his last start, did not have it today.  The tone was set with a first-inning home run as he was hit hard tonight. Quantrill has to do more right now with the injuries to the staff.

3 – Curry is good

Quietly Xzavion Curry is putting together a good start to his 2023 season.  His ERA is under three and Curry on multiple occasions has done a great job of saving the bullpen (also picking up the starters who can’t go past the 5th).

Flat Flat Flat Effort Again!

Terry Francona took a rare walk to work. Unable to start his beloved scooter, Francona hiked over from his apartment to Progressive Field. Let’s hope that this is the reason the Guards look so flat and lifeless! Are we reaching a little, yes?

Colorado Rockies secured just their second victory in 13 games by defeating the Cleveland Guardians 6-0. Austin Gomber, who had a poor outing in his previous start, redeemed himself by pitching five scoreless innings and allowing only three singles, all of which were hit by Steven Kwan. Meanwhile, Jurickson Profar contributed significantly to the Rockies’ win by hitting a home run in the first inning and driving in three runs.

Cal Quantrill, lost for only the second time in 36 career starts at Progressive Field, as the Rockies scored four more runs to chase him in the fourth inning. Quantrill had previously been undefeated at home, going 14-0 over his first 44 appearances in Cleveland.

This victory ended the Rockies’ three-game losing streak and improved their record to 7-17. Conversely, the Guardians managed only four hits and lost their sixth game in eight.

The Rockies, who had previously been 1-12 in games where their opponent scored first, took the lead early in the game with Profar’s homer. They then scored four more runs to secure their victory. Profar, who had previously struggled with runners in scoring position, broke his drought by hitting a single that drove in a run.
