From Terre Haute to the Major Leagues: Barmes helping Rockies win offensively and defensively

Thanks to his defensive versatility, Clint Barmes continues to be a key member of the Colorado Rockies this season in their quest for a National League playoff spot.

Barmes, the regular starting second baseman, filled in at shortstop for three games last week. Regular shortstop Troy Tulowitzki returned to the lineup on Friday after missing three games with back spasms. He injured his back swinging while hitting a game-tying single in the seventh inning Sept. 7 and left that game.

In eight games last eight days, the former Indiana State infielder was 7 for 27 with a double and two RBI’s. More notably, all eight of those games were victories for the Rockies. Heading into Saturday’s late game at San Diego, the Rockies were 82-60 to extend its National League wildcard lead to 51/2 games. With 20 games remaining in the regular season, the Rockies have also pulled to within two games of the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers.

News of former Indiana State or Wabash Valley-connected players last week:

• Clint Barmes — Barmes was 7 for 27 with a double and two RBI’s for Colorado.

• Mitch Stetter — Stetter picked up his fourth win and 19th hold in a pair of relief appearances for Milwaukee.

• Joe Thatcher — Thatcher picked up his third and fourth holds of the season for San Diego.

• Alex Graman — Graman is out for the season with Seibu.

• Ronnie Prettyman — Prettyman ended his season on the disabled list with West Tennessee.

• Jake Eigsti — Eigsti was 4 for 14 with a RBI to end his season with St. Lucie.

• Brian Omogrosso — Omogrosso ended his season on the disabled list for the Charlotte Knights.

• Matt Zaleski — Zaleski was the losing pitcher in his final start of the regular season on Sept. 6 with Birmingham. In the Southern League playoffs, he was the losing pitcher in a 8-1 loss vs. Jacksonville on Friday, but he only allowed two runs in six innings. The Barons trail Jacksonville 2-0 in their best-of-three series with game three played Saturday night.
