Wednesday Rockpile: Do we believe in Austin Gomber?

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Narratives can really suck sometimes. All Rockies fans can relate to that immediate sigh we all make when we hear “Coors” mentioned to dismiss a hitter’s exploits, or the rolling of our eyes when some random national writer claims, “the Rockies will always hit, but will never pitch well.” Those tend to stick with people, for better or for worse. Just ask Austin Gomber. Unless Gomber turns into an inner-circle Hall of Famer, I don’t think it’s a hot take to say that no matter...

Giants 3, Rockies 1: Gomber Good, Cueto Better

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Austin Gomber improved in his second start, but Johnny Cueto shimmied his way to victory Austin Gomber was much-improved in his second start of the season, but Johnny Cuento was downright untouchable, and the Rockies were unable to mount any significant offense against the Giants on Friday. Gomber and Cueto Go Toe-to-Toe The contest was a pitcher’s duel, as both starters were just about unhittable for most of the game. Neither allowed a hit until the fifth inning, and both threw over 100 pitches in what were each effective starts. Gomber’s...

Colorado Rockies game no. 8 thread: Austin Gomber vs Johnny Cueto

Photo by Justin Edmonds/ The Rockies look to continue their offensive outburst The Rockies (3-4) begin their first roadtrip of the season against the San Francisco Giants (3-3). Following his rocky debut last week, Gomber hopes to get back on the right track in the seaside air of Northern California as the Giants celebrate their home opener. The Rockies offense is hoping to get their fans some taco’s for the fourth straight game, after scoring eight, eight, and seven runs respectively in their last three contests. The last two games were wins, so a win today would...

Colorado Rockies morning after: Gomber stumbles as Rox drop 3 of 4 to Dodgers

Chances are Austin Gomber won’t soon forget his first appearance on the mound as a member of the Colorado Rockies. Gomber, who was obtained by the Colorado Rockies in the offseason trade that sent Nolan Arenado to St. Louis, allowed just one hit in a three-inning stint in his inaugural start for the Rockies.

Dodgers 4, Rockies 2: Gomber faulters, offense sputters as Rockies lose opening series

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Austin Gomber struggled immensely in his Rockies debut, while the offense failed to gain momentum The Colorado Rockies were looking to pull even at .500 with a win to cap off the four-game season-opening series against the Dodgers, but fell short. The first trip through the rotation was challenging, with rough outings from Germán Márquez, Antonio Senzatela, and now Austin Gomber. Gomber had a woeful Rockies debut to put the Dodgers ahead early, and the offense ground to a half. On the bright side, through the first three games the Rockies...

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports Austin Gomber will try to help his new team walk away from the opening series at .500 Although the Rockies have dropped two in a row after their Opening Day victory, there is something to be encouraged about: the offense has been able to hang with the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers. After Friday’s 11-6 loss, the Rockies lost yesterday in a back-and-forth match ending with a final score of 6-5. Strikeouts were down, with only six from the Dodgers’ pitching staff the entire game. Seven of the Rockies’ starting nine managed a hit last...

State of the Position, 2021: Starting Rotation

Photo by Jennifer Stewart/ With the addition of Austin Gomber, Colorado could have one of their all-time rotations in 2021. If the five presumed starters can show signs of peak form, the Rockies may have one of their best rotations ever. Colorado has retained their primary suspects to open games on the mound. Year-by-year consistency has fluctuated for a handful of Rockies arms, but now that a consistent 162 games is again on the horizon, the future looks bright for a young core of starters that are now seasoned veterans. Locks for the rotation: The four returning...
