The Colorado Rockies found the runs they were looking for. The force was with them in a galactic battle against the New York empire. Things looked bright and adventurous at first, got a bit dark in the middle bits, and the ending was a bit weird and not what anyone was expecting, but overall an epic win.

After putting up a big number in securing the series in Chicago, the Colorado Rockies took their awakened offense to the big apple for more of the same.

Preferring not to wait, Colorado used a five-run first inning to jump way out in front in an eventual 8-7 victory over the New York Mets.

What is especially intriguing, and has been a major topic of recent episodes of the BSN Rockies Podcast, is that the Rockies put up their eye-popping first inning without the benefit of a home run.

They came into the game first in the National League in home runs and first in MLB in road home runs but tied for last in batting average.

Drew E. Creasman was born in Grand Junction, Colorado and currently resides in Boulder, CO. He is a full time Rockies beat writer managing editor of   Education: Studied Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Colorado along with Music History and Composition.   Career: After six years as an independent musician and doing sporadic political work, I began to write about the Colorado Rockies for PurpleRow.com in the winter of 2013. Three years later, I came to BSN Denver to run the Rockies content. In short time, I found myself interviewing GM Dan O’Dowd and forging relationships with countless individuals in and around the organization.   A few highlights include hosting the only daily Rockies talk show in the world, a podcast that has welcomed Nolan Arenado and Jon Gray among others, and our wall-to-wall coverage of the 2017 Wild Card Game. I’ve also been a regular on 850 koa, 104.3 The Fan, Mile High Sports Radio and numerous podcasts.   Most Memorable Sports Moment: Game 3 of the 2007 NLDS. Ubaldo Jimenez, blackout, and the Rockies win their first postseason series.   The finest sports book I’ve ever read: Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella.   One sports movie I can’t live without: One!? Just one!? Ok … Sugar. But Field of Dreams and Friday Night Lights come incredibly close.   Most memorable experience as a reporter: Either the aforementioned Arenado interview or, and this is an odd one, spending time swapping stories with other reporters at Marc Stout’s going-away party.   The sport that started it all: Clearly baseball. I’ve been watching baseball since before I can actually remember watching baseball. It’s just always been a part of me. I can still recall the feeling of wanting to be old enough to play T-ball. I love other sports, but I had loved and played baseball for years before I was even aware anything else existed.
