That whole thought of "a change of scenery" being great for Manny Delcarmen? That didn't quite work out in his debut for the Colordo Rockies on Thursday night.
The reliever entered the game with the bases empty in the seventh inning and the Rockies clinging to a one-run lead. Just five pitches into Delcarmen's outing, Jayson Werth belted the game-tying homer into the left-field seats. Delcarmen retired the next batter but gave up three consecutive singles to Shane Victorino, Brian Schneider and Ben Francisco before getting yanked.
All three runs ended up scoring in what turned out to be a nine-run inning for the Phils. Delcarmen was saddled with the blown save and the loss, and his National League ERA sits at 108.00.
