“We are very fortunate that no one in this lineup feels like ‘I’ve got to do it by myself,’” said manager Jim Tracy, hugging Jamie Moyer during pregame introductions. “When you look at the depth of this lineup, (it’s just) hand the baton to the next guy.”
Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario gives his closer, Rafael Betancourt, a celebratory hug after they closed out the Astros 5-3 on Friday night in Houston – both team’s regular-season openers.
