Ryan Feltner’s Stellar Pitching Overshadowed by Bullpen Struggles in Rockies’ Loss to Rays


Ryan Feltner showed off his impressive skills on the pitcher’s mound for the Colorado Rockies, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to secure a win against the Tampa Bay Rays. Despite Feltner’s outstanding performance, the bullpen woes cost the Rockies the game.

Feltner, with his powerful fastball and simplified game plan, led the Rockies to a five-run lead early in the game with a career-high of 10 strikeouts. However, the bullpen couldn’t maintain the lead. Similar to the previous game, the bullpen struggled, and the Rays capitalized on the opportunities, ultimately winning 8-6.

Jalen Beeks faced challenges in relief, struggling to find the strike zone and allowing walks. Justin Lawrence came in but couldn’t prevent the Rays from taking the lead, partly due to a mishap on the field.

Despite the loss, Feltner’s efforts were commendable. His precise pitching baffled the Rays’ hitters, earning him recognition alongside Rockies’ pitching greats like Ubaldo Jiménez and Germán Márquez.

Manager Bud Black has been emphasizing simplicity in Feltner’s approach, focusing on utilizing his strengths effectively. While Feltner excelled on the mound, the team’s performance behind him fell short.

The Rockies showed glimpses of promise with home runs from Michael Toglia and Brenton Doyle, but consistency in pitching and batting throughout the game remains a challenge.

In other news, first baseman Kris Bryant was sidelined due to back soreness, but his absence is expected to be temporary.

Despite the setback, the Rockies remain determined to improve and bounce back in their upcoming games.
