Dan Haren recovered from a three-run first inning last night to hold the Rockies scoreless for the next four frames, but then back-to-back-to-back homers by Seth Smith, Carlos Gonzalez, and Ryan Spilborghs knocked him out of the game.
Haren has a great 76/15 K/BB ratio in 74 innings overall this season, including six strikeouts and no walks Thursday, but has served up an MLB-leading 16 homers and is now 9-9 with a 5.12 ERA in 25 starts dating back to last year.
