DENVER – Entering this weekend’s four-game series with the NL Central-worst Pirates, the NL West-worst Rockies were holding steady at 13th place in the National League. Saturday night’s loss, the third-straight at the hands of Pittsburgh and fifth-straight overall, moves Colorado back in the standings to 14th place or, as it’s more appropriate to call it, 2nd-worst in the league.…...

DENVER – What a difference three months can make on a baseball season. When the Red Sox and Rockies squared off in Boston for a two-game set on May 14-15, Colorado was in the midst of clawing back from an awful start to the season. Even after whiffing 17 times against Chris Sale in the opener, the boys in purple…...

DENVER – Debut day at Coors Field may not have gone completely to plan, but the game was still a special occurrence with several memorable moments for the recently promoted RHP Rico Garcia and OF Sam Hilliard. Not only was Tuesday’s game the 2,000th regular season game played at Coors Field, it marked only the fourth time Colorado had two players debut…...

Part of Rico Garcia’s offseason workload involved an art project. No, seriously. Proudly displayed outside the Rockies clubhouse at the Salt River Field complex in Scottsdale, AZ, was a standard 22”x24” poster board Garcia created depicting the history of Hawaiian baseball players, from the initial (Johnnie Williams, 1914) to the first All-Star (Charlie Hough, 1986) all the way to the…...

After a promising four-game winning streak from August 14-18 coming mostly against the National League’s worst club, Colorado has been on the road where they’ve lost six of seven, including a four-game sweep courtesy of the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals.  Sitting at 58-73 on the season, the Rockies have the third-worst record in the Senior Circuit and the…...

With Colorado’s lone silver lining of Sunday’s 11-4 loss and four-game sweep by St. Louis game being Nolan Arenado’s 3-for-5 performance, which included his 33rd home run of the season, the perennial Gold Glover recorded his 100th run batted in of the year, his fifth-straight season at the century mark. As for the more lurid details of the affair, it all…...

If it’s become a chore to listen to the play-by-play details of another disappointing loss or view the box score for any Rockies’ game, you now have permission to shift your focus to their Triple-A affiliate, the Albuquerque Isotopes. Last night, for example, the ‘Topes won handily against the Washington Nationals top affiliate, 17-7. You’ll first notice that LHP Chris…...

Baseball and the supernatural may not have a lot in common, but walks and ghosts are very similar: both will come back to haunt you. Rockies starting pitcher German Márquez threw six strong innings of four run ball, but a leadoff walk in the sixth scored immediately thereafter on a homer to reduce Colorado’s lead to one. That lead was…...

With hopes of starting another four-game winning streak on Tuesday night, Kyle Freeland delivered a solid start until departing unexpectedly with a groin injury in the sixth. A late comeback was not enough after Bryan Shaw couldn’t steady the ship during a five-run inning that sank the Rockies, 8-7. Freeland retired the first six batters of the game in hopes…...

DENVER – Las Cucarachas don’t die easily. If you were one of the 38,181 at Coors Field who witnessed any of Colorado’s three comebacks on Sunday, you know the cockroaches usually have the last laugh. The 7-6 win wasn’t how the Rockies would have drawn it up, but Garrett Hampson’s walk-off single in the tenth inning punctuated Colorado’s fourth-straight victory and secured…...

In a season-opening rematch between the Rockies Jon Gray and the Marlins Sandy Alcantar, it would be a reversal of fortune for all involved, especially the Wolf of Blake Street. On Friday night, the 3-0 victory was the exact opposite of the Colorado loss on March 31 in Miami. Instead of a six-inning, three run outing, Gray was electric, even…...

DENVER – When the Rockies came up to bat in the bottom half of the first inning on Bark at the Park Day, the score was 5-0 and spot-starter Jeff Hoffman’s performance was lackluster, at best. Some suggested it was ruff. The one highlight worth mentioning above all else was the Major League debut of catcher Dom Nuñez. Selected from…...
