By Comparsion: A Gray Day for Rockies at Dodger Stadium Monday Night

Jon Gray managed to retire only six batters while giving up six runs in the Rockies 8-2 loss to the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Monday night, equaling the second-shortest start of his career, the shortest start in which he was removed for performance, not injury.

“The thing for me is to not think about mechanical stuff in competition,” Gray said. “It got in my way a lot (Monday night). It has happened to me too many times already, and I’m sick of it. If I can get back to not thinking about anything but competing, I am going to win.”
