Rockies' Rusch awarded Monday's win
DENVER -- After further review, the Colorado Rockies' official scorer changed the winner of Monday night's game to reliever Glendon Rusch.
Jason Grilli was originally credited with the win following the Rockies' 12-7 victory over the San Diego Padres on Monday. But scorer Dave Einspahr switched around the winners Tuesday night after reviewing Rusch's effectiveness in pitching out of a fourth-inning jam.
Rusch went 2 2/3 innings, giving up four hits and two runs.
He worked his way out of trouble in the fourth by striking out Adrian Gonzalez and getting Chase Headley to hit into an inning-ending double play, keeping the Rockies' lead in order.
Rusch also pitched a perfect fifth.
With the change, Rusch is now 1-0 and Grilli 0-1.
