On June 20, Todd Helton hits a two-run homer in the 9th to lead Colorado to a 9 – 7 win over Pittsburgh. It is Colorado’s 15th win in its last 16 games, as the club has caught fire after naming Jim Tracy as its manager on May 29th. Before Helton’s blow off Jesse Chavez, Chris Iannetta hits a game-tying three-run blast in the 8th while Ian Stewart drives in three runs.
In Boston, the two teams dedicate the game in memory of Willard Hershberger, then Frank McCormick drives in six runs to lead the Reds to a 12 – 9 win over the Bees after Bucky Walters loses the opener, his third straight defeat.
