Colorado Rockies morning after: Pitching priceless in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH — The Colorado Rockies have scuffled a bit with their pitching staff this season and, particularly, in the 14 games prior to Wednesday night, when the team went 3-11. The pitching staff had an ERA of 5.58 in that span but on Tuesday, they got a gutsy performance from Kyle Freeland and a great […] Colorado Rockies morning after: Pitching priceless in Pittsburgh - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - Colorado Rockies News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Rockies 2, Pirates 1: A late rally wins it for Rox

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Connor Joe got back at the team that drafted him by knocking in the winning run on Tuesday The Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates both pitched well on Tuesday, but it was the Rox who escaped with the victory in extra innings as they bested the Bucs 2-1. Two’s enough for Freeland Kyle Freeland gave up just two hits throughout his start, and somehow that was enough to put him in place for the loss when he left the game. The left-hander battled through long at-bats and occasional command issues to throw 4 1⁄3 strong innings, not...

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ The Rockies will try to even the series up against the Bucs After being held to one unearned run on Monday, the Rockies will attempt to bounce back on Tuesday and get back in the win column. Kyle Freeland (1-4, 4.85 ERA) will start for Colorado. He’s made four starts this month, two of which were very good and two of which were less so. The latter are his more recent, including a brutal game against the Royals in which he was banged up for eight runs (six earned) allowed in 4 2⁄3 innings off of 12 hits. That’s less likely to happen...

Thursday Rockpile: Highlighting some pitchers shining with the High-A Fresno Grizzlies

Photo by Hyoung Chang/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Colorado Rockies news and links for Thursday, May 19th, 2022 We’re about a quarter of the way through the 2022 baseball season, and the less said about the Colorado Rockies’ pitching woes, the better. Fortunately, there is hope for the future both in the short and long term. In the short term, Kyle Freeland’s strong start on Wednesday helped snap a 12-game losing streak to the San Francisco Giants and hopefully set the team on the right course following a rough skid. In the long term, there’s oodles of...

Photo by Dustin Bradford/Icon Sportswire via The streak must end It’s been 277 days since the Rockies beat the Giants. Colorado has lost 12 straight against the NL West foes, dating back to Aug. 14, 2021. The Rockies are stuck in a rut, having lost seven of their last eight, despite having played their last five games at home. There is good news, however. The last time the Rockies beat the Giants, Kyle Freeland was on the mound. He gave up one run on five hits in six solid innings with two walks and six strikeouts to help the Rockies win 4-1. With a worn-down and...

Royals 14, Rockies 10: I thought we were supposed to be good at home?

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports In a long, ugly, and sloppy slugfest, the Rockies fell to the Royals in what was expected to be an easy win. It was long, it was ugly, and it was stupid. Both teams played sloppy baseball but it ended up haunting the Colorado Rockies the most as they fell to the Kansas City Royals 14-10. The Rockies fall to an even .500 on the season in what should have been a rebound at home after a miserable road trip.

Yes, there were moments that were frustrating and nerve-wracking, but the game remained scoreless through 7 1⁄2 innings. Then it seemed like a light switch was flipped and things started getting interesting in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are currently in the basement of the NL West, but if they continue their winning streak (currently at four games) they could leap past both the San Francisco Giants and the Rockies, something the Rockies can stop of they can find a way to end that streak tonight.

After being swept in a four-game set against the Phillies — their first series loss of the season — they have outscored the Reds 14-7 in two games so far.

Kyle Freeland (0-2, 7.71 ERA) will look to continue to lower his ERA and find the command he’s been struggling to attain.
