Ryan Spilborghs was never traded during his first Rockies' tenure. He was drafted by the team in 2002 and left in 2011 as a free agent.

Spilborghs, now a Colorado broadcaster for Root Sports Rocky Mountain, made his own trade Tuesday night. From his position near the field, he gave a Dodgers fan a foul ball in exchange for a cupcake.

His broadcast colleagues in the booth joked the play is the first Spilborghs made since his 2013 stint with the Saitama Seibu Lions of Japan's Pacific League. After Colorado, Spilborghs spent time in the Indians and Rangers' minor league systems before one final professional season in Japan.

Spilborghs' eighth-inning snack should have been dessert, but the Rockies needed 16 innings to defeat the Dodgers. The club is still 22 1/2 games behind Los Angeles.



Spilborghs had 424 hits, 42 home runs and 218 RBI in 619 career games.
