Rockies' Pat Valaika: Makes impact as pinch hitter
Valaika went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run in Friday's 13-9 win over the Dodgers.
Valaika's blast ignited a rally by the Rockies in the fifth inning, as he took Hyun-jin Ryu deep before adding an infield single on his second turn at the plate in place of starter Antonio Senzatela. It's the infielder's first hits since he returned to the big leagues June 18, having gone hitless in his previous 13 at-bats and adding only two walks and a run scored. With an .095 average, Valaika will likely continue to be limited to pinch-hitting duties.
