It’s becoming comical at this point. There is no way around it—so far, the 2018 Colorado Rockies are a better baseball team away from their home ballpark.

Getting three key home runs from players fans might not expect (or maybe even have wanted in the lineup in the first place) and six runs on10 hits, the offense did its part behind a so-so night for Colorado pitching to get the 6-4 win over the San Diego Padres.

The Rockies took the lead in the third employing a tactic that has often been used to great effect against them; getting the pitcher on base. Anderson was able to draw a one-out walk and move up on a Charlie Blackmon single, eventually scoring on a two-strike single off the bat of Nolan Arenado.
