WASHINGTON, D.C. – In what was originally a matchup of two starting pitchers known as TBD, the Rockies selected young Jeff Hoffman to make his seventh start of the season while the Nationals activated seven-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer for Thursday’s fourth and final game of the series. To say Colorado would have been pleased…...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reminiscent of his first start back for Colorado on July 13 when a three-hour rain delay postponed the first pitch against the Cincinnati Reds, Kyle Freeland languished for nearly two hours beneath Nationals Park awaiting the downpour to cease before his start Wednesday in the nightcap of the twin bill. In his third start since being recalled…...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a back-and-forth Game One of a day-night doubleheader between Colorado and Washington, it was mostly a case of good news, bad news for the Rockies. Jon Gray gave up only a run through four innings, but exited early after a right calf injury from a line drive. Rockies manufactured two runs in a low-scoring affair, but…...

In the years following the famed incident, Hall of Famer George Brett’s son Jackson would often request of that memorable moment, “Hey, dad. Put on that video where you go crazy.” Baseball is decorated with many notables home runs, but few are commemorated with their own name, such as Babe Ruth’s “Called Shot,” Bobby Thompson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round The World,”…

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Amidst the dog days of summer and a season-long ten-game road trip, the temperatures in the capitol allowed a brief respite from the sauna-like conditions over the weekend. However, the Nationals still turned on the heat from pitch number one through an eight-run rally in the seventh. Something else was in the air Tuesday night as both starters…...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ahead of Tuesday night’s game against the Nationals, the Rockies made a few transactions, including one that welcomes a new face to the big league roster. Colorado announced the selection of first baseman Yonder Alonso from Triple-A Albuquerque. Signed as a Minor League free agent on July 10 by the Rockies after his release from the Chicago…...

NEW YORK, NY – Winning is always what the doctor recommends for any ailing team, but for a Rockies team playing their worst stretch of baseball this season, Sunday’s dose helped stave off a trip to the medical ward as the death knells grow louder. German Márquez regained his composure after the worst start of his career last Monday and…...

On Sunday, the Colorado Rockies several moves before Sunday’s matinee, including designating for assignment first baseman Mark Reynolds.  Entering the season with 294 home runs, it looked promising for Reynolds to hit a milestone 300th home run with purple pinstripes and become the first player to do so without having ever made an All-Star Team. “That’s the way it goes,”…...

On the 50th Anniversary of the first moon landing, the Colorado crew witnessed a blastoff that traveled much higher than the 14ers dotting their mountainous state. The on-field temperature felt like playing a game on the launch pad amid liftoff, 94 degrees at first pitch, but with 44% humidity it felt more like 105 degrees. Before the game, Bud Black…...

It was a new day but the same old story for the Colorado Rockies on Friday in their first of three against the New York Yankees. Vibes felt good for the visitors early on when they took a 2-0 lead but the pitching let them down once again and that early advantage felt like a distant memory by the time…...

They say most of the ghosts are still across the street. Along with AT&T Sportsnet analyst Cory Sullivan, I tend to agree. Before the birth of the New York Yankees, the city that never sleeps received its first American League team in 1903. At the time, a team called Hilltop Park in the Washington Heights area of Manhattan was known…...

The best thing the Colorado Rockies can say about the homestand they’ve just completed is that it’s over. Another devastating loss, by a score of 11-8 to the Giants, concluded a four-game sweep at the hands of their divisional opponents and dropped them into last place in the NL West. It was a brutal afternoon for starter Jon Gray who…...

The Colorado Rockies’ season continues to spiral away from them. When they pitch, they can’t hit, and when they hit, they can’t pitch right now. We saw a little bit of both on Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants as the bats fell silent for the first eight innings, and the moment they awoke the pitching fell apart en…...

Anyone who has been watching baseball this year, especially baseball at Coors Field, knows that the ball is flying off the bat and out of the park at an extraordinary rate. Colorado’s altitude and expansive outfield have always given up a lot of runs and the worst kept secret in the game is that something is clearly different with…...

Before Statcast was introduced to baseball audiences in 2015, the box score was the only tool for fans to indicate whether or not an individual player had a good or bad game.  Created by Henry Chadwick in 1859 and adapted from a cricket scorecard, the box score’s intention is to encapsulate essential elements of a game for each player…...

Whether it’s games lost in terrible blowouts or by the smallest of margins, the Colorado Rockies just can’t seem to put together a complete effort on the baseball diamond right now. They got about as much as could be asked for out of starter Chi Chi González, if not more,  who was promoted to the roster between games of…...

DENVER – With a doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants scheduled for the Colorado Rockies on Monday, RHP Yency Almonte was added to the roster as the 26th Man. It became apparent very quickly that an arsenal of pitchers was more appropriate for Game One. A rough first inning by German Márquez became a rough start which evolved into…...

When German Márquez won the 2018 Silver Slugger Award for the best hitting pitcher in the National League, few took umbrage with voting results, especially those in the Rocky Mountain region. One pitcher in particular was not pleased by this announcement from Louisville Slugger, not to mention his team’s corresponding fan base. Michael Lorenzen of the Cincinnati Reds led…...
