MIA 10, COL 2: Rocky Mountain High

The last time Sandy Alcantara stood on the pitcher’s mound at Coors Field on August 6, 2021, then-manager Don Mattingly took the ball from his ace in what, to this day, remains a career-worst outing.

Lasting just 3.2 innings, the future unanimous NL Cy Young coughed up 10 runs on 10 hits, surrendering 3 home runs. By Game Score - of which Sandy totaled a score of 0 - it was and still sits as the worst single-game low in his seven-season career.

After he got third baseman Ryan McMahon to fly out to end the 6th, Alcantara could walk off the mound knowing he redeemed himself in the stadium that pitchers have night sweats ahead of their starts there.
