Wilin Rosario broke out on Thursday night.These Colorado Rockies fight.It doesn't always work out for the Rockies, as was the case on Thursday night against the Padres, as the Rockies lost 6-5 in 12 innings to start the four-game series on the wrong foot.Despite the loss from the Rockies, this team displayed something that they have been consistently showing all season long. They don't give in. They don't quit fighting, and they believe that they can win every game that they play.Rockies fans are still un-training themselves from the disaster that was the 2012 season.

Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado had been in an extended slump and may have been breaking out of it in a big way in a wild 10-9 win on Friday night over the Padres.

Umpires Blow Two Calls on Same Play in Extra Innings During Padres-Rockies Game (Video)

As a player, coach or spectator, you never want the outcome of a game to be left in the hands of an umpire. Too many times it will result in a letdown and ill-willed curses toward the crew chief. And while the two blown calls in Thursday night’s extra-inning affair between the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies did not determine the outcome of the game, it certainly made it...

Two umpires blow two calls on same play in Padres-Rockies game (VIDEO))

It’s beginning to look like 2013 is the year of the blown call in Major League Baseball.  Last night’s extra inning game between the Giants and Rockies played up the reputation.  But shockingly, it did not involve umpire Angel Hernandez – who I happen to think is the worst umpire in baseball.
