Denver at Utah, game 2

This was a strong pitching duel between Duane Garcia and Derek Howe. Denver took a 1-0 lead in the second as George Rivera singled, stole 2nd, and scored on an Alex Hamilton single. No more would score until the 7th. Denver scored runs in the 7th, 8th, and 9th. They surprised Utah by stealing 4 bases in 4 attempts, as Big Cheese normally disdains the running game. In the 9th, Howe allowed a walk and HBP with one out, bringing in Ryan Webb from the bullpen. He needed one pitch to get a 1-6-3 double play and preserve the 4-0 win.
