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.
