GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Grand Junction Rockies Manager Bobby Jenks mixed things up ahead of Thursday’s game against the Northern Colorado Owlz. During a team meeting, he had starting pitcher Izzy Fuentes, draw the batting order by picking names out of a hat! No doubt, an unconventional method of choosing a lineup, but ultimately the Rockies picked up a 3-0 win. Randomly selected or not, Izzy Fuentes and the pitching staff not sweating the lineup, pitching the staff’s first shutout of the season (only giving up five hits and tallying 10 strikeouts). Rockies get back at it Friday at 6:35, for Retro Night at Suplizio.
