Rockies drop home opener 8-3

Posted: Updated:
DENVER -

In the coldest home opener in organization history, the Rockies did little to keep fans warm.

The Colorado Rockies lost their home opener Friday afternoon, falling 8-3 to the Atlanta Braves following a disappointing start from German Marquez who surrendered seven earned runs in 4.2 innings.

The game was in a weather delay for an hour due to snow falling in downtown Denver.

That start doomed the Rockies chances early, and the team wasn't able to come back, despite back-to-back home runs from Carlos Gonzales and Trevor Story in the fourth inning, which cut the lead to 4-3.

The Braves then answered right back in the fifth. Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson hit a two-out RBI double and then after an intentional walk, Braves starter Brandon McCarthy drove in two runs on a double of his own.

McCarthy got the win improving to 2-0 on the season, allowing three runs over six innings.

The Rockies fell to 4-4 on the season, while the Braves improved to 5-2. They'll play again tomorrow at Coors Field at 6:10 p.m.

    The 4-foot by 4-foot patch of grass right at the end of Kevin Sabata's driveway has been a constant thorn in his side. It's bordered on three sides by concrete or asphalt. There's hardly any shade because the trees in his Wildwood Ridge subdivision are little more than saplings.  Despite all his efforts, Kevin just couldn't get the grass to grow.  "It just was not coming back," he said.
