DENVER – On the first game of the Colorado Rockies’ most recent road trip, viewers bore witness to something unusual in the game of baseball. It was a game in which the player most responsible for delivering the win was relief pitcher Antonio Senzatela.
It had been since 1980 that a Major League baseball team won a game by the score of 1-0 with the relief pitcher driving in the only run.
Winning the game isn’t usually a part of the reliever’s job description.
But it is absolutely worth noting that every time closer Wade Davis has entered a game this season, the Rockies have won.
That isn’t to say he’s been perfect every time out.
