Rockies believe their lineup is peaking just in time. But which offense will show up in Arizona?

If there is a hitter in purple who can appreciate how the Rockies reached the postseason -- by the hairs on their chins -- it is Charlie Blackmon. Colorado's all-star center fielder tends to eat an 0-for-3 day at the plate like it was moldy bread, even when his team wins.

Colorado Rockies news, notes and links for Monday, October 2 Blackmon wins the NL batting title; Rockies peaking for postseason | Denver Post Yesterday's game result didn't much matter, and as such it looks more similar to a game taking place at Salt River Fields or Camelback Ranch than Coors Field.

Charlie Blackmon secures NL batting title, Rockies fall to Dodgers 6-3

That’s a wrap for the regular season The final game of the 2017 season seemed a lot like a spring training game. The Rockies trotted out half a dozen pitchers, and the Dodgers did the same. Rockies position players began to exit as early as the fourth inning. The Dodgers ultimately beat the Rockies 6-3. The Dodgers got runs off of Kyle Freeland in the first and the third inning.

Hoffman is unlikely to be on...
