Typically, when a team has more ejections than runs, it loses.

Such was the case on an odd Friday night at Coors Field. A paid crowd of 40,114 watched as evaluation gave way to frustration in the Rockies' 4-1 loss to the Reds.

The game began with Troy Tulowitzki sitting out for precautionary reasons with tightness in his left hip. It ended without Carlos Gonzalez and manager Jim Tracy, ejected for loose lips in the fifth inning.

"I just couldn't control myself. I know I shouldn't have done it, but those were bad calls. If I get myself out or the pitcher does, fine. The umpire got me out," Gonzalez said. "What was I supposed to say, 'thank you'? "
