Colorado Rockies 5, Atlanta Braves 3 (10 innings): Rockies down but not out in win over Braves

Down to their last strike, the Rockies scored three in the ninth and two in the 10th to secure a series win. Through 8 2⁄3 innings, the Colorado Rockies offense could not muster anything against Braves pitching, but that is why they play nine innings. Down 3-0, the Rockies got four straight hits with two outs in the top of the ninth to tie the game at three. They then got a go-ahead home run from DJ LeMahieu and an RBI single from Nolan Arenado in the 10th to take a 5-3 win and the series over Atlanta. Epic comeback After Braves closer A.J. Minter got two quick outs in the ninth, Trevor...

Fanpost Friday: Which Braves should win awards this year? Which ones will?

Fanpost Friday: Which Braves should win awards this year? Which ones will?

Perhaps, at last, leaguewide recognition? It’s mid-August. The season’s not nearly over, but the end-of-season picture is becoming somewhat clearer. That, and Nolan Arenado is in town. So, that got me thinking — which Braves are going to come down with hardware this year? You tell me, and tell me why. Freddie Freeman seems like a good case to get MVP votes, and the Rookie of the Year debate has been going on. But, those aren’t the only awards. What will it take for a Braves pitcher to win a Cy Young this year? There’s an award for closers, right — can A.J. Minter get it? Silver...

The Colorado Rockies have had a lot of big home runs in 2018, from Raimel Tapia‘s go-ahead grand slam off Archie Bradley in Arizona to Nolan Arenado‘s 11th inning blast in Milwaukee and Ryan McMahon‘s game-winning homers in consecutive games against the Los Angeles Dodgers. But as dramatic as these home runs were, none of […] Colorado Rockies: The home run that saved their season - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

With the MVP-caliber Nolan Arenado down with a sore shoulder, the team has to weigh the cost of winning now or getting their star player healthy. Only one game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Rockies are in a great position to take the elusive NL west title.

Game Recap: Avalanche Continues. Rockies Bury Astros for fifth Straight Loss, 5-1

Dog days still howlin. Astros only manage 3 hits behind another great Verlander start. The Astros had one run on three hits tonight. If Justin Verlander could have pitched nine scoreless innings, instead of just five, maybe something else about this game would have mattered. But if your staff doesn’t pitch a shutout, and all your offense can do is score one run, then in the immortal words of the great heavy metal band Metallica, nothing else matters. Ok, so after Verlander gave up a two run homer to Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning, Collin McHugh gave up a run in the seventh. And then...

Colorado Rockies 3, Los Angeles Dodgers 2: Return of the Mac(Mahon)

Ryan McMahon played hero for the second straight night in a Rockies win. With Nolan Arenado out of the lineup, it was still the Rockies third baseman that broke the hearts of the Dodgers on Saturday night, as Ryan McMahon hit a walk-off three-run home run in a 3-2 Rockies win.

However, Trevor Story had a one-out double in the ninth, Arenado was hit by a pitch in a pinch hitting appearance and McMahon walked...
