GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Rockies entered Sunday's game against the Idaho Falls Chukars with a record of 24-25, which was the first time all year they've had a losing record.
Blake Shouse made his first start since he developed a blister on his throwing hand.
He gave up four runs and only managed to get through two innings.
Meanwhile, the Rox can't seem to find their swings, either.
Only six hits for the purple team: two from Raimel Tapia, two from Miguel Dilone, and two from Ryan McMahon, including a solo home run.
The Chukars put 10 more runs on the Rockies, which marks the fifth time in eight games they've yielded double digit runs.
"It's no secret right now," Rockies Manager Anthony Sander said, "Our starting pitching is suspect right now. It's hit or miss, and it's hard to compete when you're down double digit runs every game."
They fall to Idaho Fall 10-2, and go 1-7 on this eight game home stand.
They will begin a four game set in Missoula on Tuesday.
