It was bonus time Sunday night. Torrealba hit a two-out,
three-run homer in the sixth inning to break a tie as the Rockies
beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1 in Game 3 of the NL championship
series to move within a game of sweeping the series.
The crowd cheered loudly for Torrealba and didn't quiet down
until he popped his head out of the dugout for a curtain call.
Torrealba's homer was his first of the postseason. He is 8-for-21
in the playoffs with seven RBIs.
His handling of Rockies pitchers has been superb. Colorado
pitchers have a 1.77 ERA through six postseason games.
