Rockies Pitcher - Catcher Exchange loses Game

 

On Thursday afternoon the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 1-0.  The Braves scored their only run, an unearned run in unique fashion.  After a pitch by Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin to the Braves Brian McCann, Chacin completely missed the routine return throw from catcher Wilin Rosario. Chacin took his eye off the ball on the return throw and the ball ended up between the pitchers mound and second base.  The miscue allowed Braves base runner Juan Francisco to score from third.  Chacin was quoted by ESPN as saying "I thought I got it and I put my head down and I just missed it. It's inexcusable. ... It's really embarrassing. It's something normal we do all the time. ... It's too late now, but we'll learn from that. You see what happened. We lost the game because of that one play."
