http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/playerSplits?categoryId=200805Brace yourself for a wild-card tiebreaker on Monday. The Rockies put up three in the eighth inning vs. Arizona. Garret Atkins a run-scoring single and Brad Hawpe a two-run double did the trick. Hawpe has played great over the final two months, and has been as much a beneficiary from Matt Holliday’s great season as anyone.
Even if the Rockies finish off this win, life won’t be easy Monday. The Padres, a loser to Milwaukee on Sunday, are braced to use Jake Peavy in the tiebreaker. Still, the Rockies have some serious mojo. They’ll give Peavy everything he can handle.
