Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Rockies drop to 6-17 in their last 23 games. The Colorado Rockies struck out 17 times en route to dropping their fifth straight game, losing 8-2 to the New York Yankees on Friday. Every member of the Rockies lineup struck out at least once in the game, with Charlie Blackmon, Ryan McMahon, and Mark Reynolds with three Ks a piece.

After taking three games out of four against the Rays, the Yankees welcome the Colorado Rockies to town for a three-game series this weekend. The savage Yankees currently have an eight-game lead in the AL East and could tack on a few more in the win column since the Rockies are currently tied for last place in the NL West and are 2-8 in their last ten games. Tonight, the Yankees will send J.A. Happ to start the game. Happ had a good but not great performance last Saturday against the Blue Jays. He...

Road trip preview: Rockies season hanging in the balance

Road trip preview: Rockies season hanging in the balance

A poor road trip could knock the Rockies out of contention The Rockies just finished what was supposed to be one of the softer stretches of their brutal second half schedule with a 2-5 home stand. It was a miserable stretch where nothing went right, and it was capped off with four consecutive losses against the Giants. Now, as the Rockies near game number 100, they head out on a critical, and very difficult, road trip. Here’s what’s ahead. At New York Yankees (62-33) July 19: Kyle Freeland vs. J.A.

Monday Rockpile: Pitching crucial for 2019 success

Rockies news and links for July 15, 2019 Early indications from Freeland’s return are brighter under the surface | Mile High Sports While it’s impossible to judge the rest of Kyle Freeland’s season one game after his return, we can get some indication of things to come. It wasn’t the best appearance he ever had, naturally, but he did pretty well over all. A lot of his pitches were hit, but they weren’t hit particularly well. None were hit faster than 95 MPH off the bat. He did allow four triples, breaking the record, but only one of those was hit near the middle of the zone. The...

Cincinnati Reds 17, Colorado Rockies 9: Weird baseball

Cincinnati Reds 17, Colorado Rockies 9: Weird baseball

Things got weird, and ugly, in a late-night Coors Field slugfest. Erstwhile Baseball Prospectus writer and current Astros front office member Kevin Goldstein defined any game that went beyond midnight local time as “weird baseball,” and there was plenty of weirdness, not much of it good for the home team, in the Rockies 17-9 loss to the Reds on Saturday. Kyle Freeland’s return to Coors Field was delayed more than three hours by weather and after a smooth top of the first from the Rockies lefty, the hit parade began. The Rockies and Reds combined for 26 runs on 39 hits in a game that...

As we get farther and farther in, it’s looking less likely that the Rockies will make a third playoff appearance.

It also provides some clarity about those ugly box scores: Freeland was pitching in certain games with specific directions to not throw his slider and ignore the results. We didn’t know that, of course, so it was hard not to be concerned as he got shelled by...
