The Boston Red Sox had “The Curse of the Bambino.”
The Chicago Cubs had “The Curse of the Billy Goat.”
The Rockies have, what, “The Curse of Dinger?”
Or maybe, when it comes to road games, Murphy’s Law rules: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” You can ask right-hander German Marquez about that.
Of course, the Rockies lost again on Saturday, falling 10-3 to Cincinnati at Great American Ball Park. The Reds, who have won nine of 12, have their dangerous offense cranked up to fifth gear.
After getting 10 hits, including five home runs Friday night while roughing up lefty Kyle Freeland, Cincy had 14 hits Saturday and drove in five runs with two outs.
