Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki: 'Sick and tired of losing'

Thursday August 7th, 2014

Colorado Rockies All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki says things need to change with the team before next season because he is sick of losing. 

The Rockies have lost eight of their last 10 games and have the National League’s worst record. They are 45-68 on the season, entering play on Thursday.

"I think that's why I came out numerous times and said I want to win," Tulowitzki said via the Denver Post. "It doesn't mean I want out of here. It means I'm sick and tired of losing.

Tulowitzki is on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip flexor strain. At the time he got hurt, he led the majors in batting average, on-base percentage and OPS.

He hopes that the Rockies, who won 22 of their first 38 games this season, can put together a few victories and end the season on a good note.

"Finish strong and end the season strong," Tulowitzki said. "It's been a rough year, but end it on a good note and head into next season hopefully things looking up."
