Circus Music: Rockies miscues turn Miguel Cabrera grounder into Little League home run

Big League Stew

Despite a rare win on Friday night that snapped their eight-game losing streak overall and a nine-game losing streak in interleague play, the Colorado Rockies continued their desperate search for rock bottom on Saturday afternoon in Detroit.

The expected news: Colorado lost again, 4-1.

The potential good news: It's possible they finally found rock bottom in the form of a Little League style series of errors that allowed Miguel Cabrera — yes, that Miguel Cabrera — to circle the bases on a simple one-hopper back to the pitcher.

I'm not kidding. This seriously happened.

Watch if for yourself:

I think it might be time for Colorado to retire the Justin Bieber cardboard cutout, because whatever inspiration that was good for has certainly worn off over their dreadful ten game stretch.

But perhaps the most interesting part of the whole fiasco is that Cabrera — who hit a more conventional home run earlier in the game — didn't even break out of the batter's box until he saw pitcher Christian Friedrich misplay the ball. He was completely prepared to give 25% effort down the line, if that, until the Rockies forced him to give about 90%. And even 90% was good enough as Colorado's defense melted down all around him.
