Jonathan Herrera bunts for a single The Colorado Rockies young players are showing no quit as they continue to show a lot of heart in this miserable season. The Rockies have won 2 games in a row and look to Jhoulys Chacin tonight against the New York Mets to continue their winning ways. Last night the Rockies were held in check by R.A. Dickey, other than a second deck home run by Tyler Colvin. Alex White pitched four effective innings giving up 3 hits and only one run, but only lasted 4 innings. Guillermo Moscoso took the piggyback job, working 2 1/2 scoreless innings, allowing manager Jim Tracy to use bullpen matchups to silence the Mets.   Once Dickey was out of the game, the Rockies were able to chip away at the terrible Mets bullpen. Josh Edgin was unable to field a bunt by Jonathan Herrera towards first and threw the ball away, allowing Herrera to advance to second. After a successful bunt to advance Herrera to third he scored on a passed ball by catcher Kelly Soppach giving the Rockies a 2 to 1 lead that would hold up. The Mets threatened in the eighth inning as they loaded the bases with two outs. Matt Belisle relieved Rex Brothers, and got Jordan Valdespin to ground out to Tyler Colvin. The play was very close, as Belisle sprinted over to first and beat Valdespin to the base by a cleat. A close play that will go into the books as a ground out to first.   Who would have thought at the beginning of the season that wins would be generated by the likes of Colvin, Herrera, Eric Young Jr and Josh Rutledge? Yesterday’s lineup looked more like a spring training B game than a major league lineup. Alex White on the hill with Wilin Rosario behind the plate. Tyler Colvin at first, DJ LeMahieu at second, Herrera at short and Jordan Pacheco at third was the infield lineup. The outfield had Charlie Blackmon at right, Dexter Fowler in center and Andrew Brown in left. The only opening day starter on the field against the Mets yesterday was Dexter Fowler. Of the starters, four of them are rookies and many others are second year players with limited big league experience. Either way, the youngsters are playing hard and playing well.   Here are your Colorado Rockies of the future. Carlos Gonzalez will return to the team late tonight and will play tomorrow. Troy Tulowitzki will most likely start a rehab stint this week in the minors and may be back with the team in a little over a week. Once those two return, the Rockies will be looking at their possible team of the future.   Denver Sports Chat – Kris Loco
