“Q” Ticker: Hits Second and First Major League Walk OFF Home Run

Sunday September 28: “Q” has completed his 2008 season with the Colorado Rockies. He played in 81 games for the Rockies and finished the season with a .238 batting average with 2 home runs (a walk off on Sunday August 24, and his first major league home run on May 31) and 15 RBI.

Tuesday September 2: “Q” played second base and went 2X6 and scored two runs in the Rockies 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants. His batting average stands at .248.

Sunday August 24: Omar “Q” Quintanilla homered with one out in the 12th inning and the Colorado Rockies took advantage of five Cincinnati errors to beat the Reds 4-3 on Sunday. Quintanilla, who entered as a defensive replacement at second base in the 12th, hit Mike Lincoln’s 1-2 pitch into the right-field bleachers for his second homer of the season. “I tried to get on base for Matty. I got a pretty good pitch to hit, took a hack at it,” Quintanilla said. “It felt good right away. It was an unbelievable feeling.”

“Q” was used sparingly when shortstop Troy Tulowitzki returned from the disabled list on July 21. “That was very appropriate that it happened for him today because he does his work so professionally,” Rockies Manager Clint Hurdle said. “Whatever you ask him to do, he does it. And he does such a good job when he’s out there.”

“Q” hit his first major league home run on May 31, 2008. The 1X1 night with an RBI and the walk off home run raised his average to .246. “Q” started playing for the Bandits as a 10 year old.
