One Night, One Organization, Two Historic Pitching Performances

In case you missed it, Jason Marquis was Bob Gibson, Orel Hershiser, and Greg Maddux all rolled into one last night.

In other words, he was pretty special.テつ A kind of special Rockies fans have seen maybe seven or eight times in 17 years… and six of those came AGAINST the Rockies.

Marquis needed only 86 pitches (66 strikes) to throw a complete game, two-hit shutout of the first place Dodgers.テつ He threw first pitch strikes to 16 of the first 19 batters — 22 of 29 overall.テつ He struck out only three, while amassing a ridiculous 17 groundball outs.

That’s just the pitching side, he was pretty special at the dish, too.

With the Rockies leading 1-0 in the 7th, Chris Iannetta was walked to loaded the base for Marquis.テつ Marquis then delivered a 2-out, 2-run single to the opposite field, all but wrapping up his NL leading 10th victory at that moment.

What more could a guy do?

Sounds like the perfect night, right?

Not quite.

Enter Brandon Hynick, one of Colorado’s fast-rising pitching prospects, who took the mound for Triple-A Colorado Springs last night.

In a game that was reduced to seven innings due to strange circumstances, Hynick was absolutely perfect, retiring each and every one of the 21 Portland Beavers he faced.

(Play-by-Play) (Boxscore) (Hynick’s thoughts)

Granted, the shortened game makes the feat not as cool, but it’s still pretty damn cool!テつ Congratulations to Brandon.

    Marquis preformance is pretty impressive for someone with a career ERA of 4.50 and only 3 career shutouts. 10-5 and 3.87 ERA, someone is having a career year.

    Since when do pitchers go to Colorado to enhance their value?
