I’m sure it’s been a long, tough day for the team, but Troy Tulowitzki had something to say to everyone going forward:

Sounds like a solid team dad talk.

Some other tidbits to come out of this afternoon:

Here are tonight’s lineups. Brandon Cumpton and Darnell Sweeney have been added to the roster to take John Axford and Aaron Loup’s spots. Gurriel has not yet been placed on the DL, so that move will open a spot for Ken Giles who is expected to join the team in Seattle on Thursday.

Diaz moves up to the sixth spot, Teoscar sits most likely as a result from his horrendous night last night, and Grichuk will bat second.
