Colorado Rockies 8, Baltimore Orioles 6: Story and Nolan carry the Rockies

The Rockies rallied from a 5-1 deficit and walked off against the Orioles. Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado each hit a pair of home runs as the Rockies rallied to take down the Baltimore Orioles. Arenado’s first home run got the Rockies on the board in the first inning and Story’s second was a walk-off against Orioles closer Mychal Givens.

Sweep away the pain: Phillies 7, Rockies 5

Sweep away the pain: Phillies 7, Rockies 5

With a sweep of the Rockies, that terrible Brewers series is a thing of the past. You could feel them: Those X-factors that become the obstacles in completing a sweep. In the first inning, with Jerad Eickhoff on the mound for the Phillies after his first bad start of the year, it felt like it was starting. Charlie Blackmon led off with a solo shot, Eickhoff hit David Dahl with a pitch, and some divine chaos prevented Rhys Hoskins from scooping an easy out on a soft Nolan Arenado ground ball. A run was in, some men were on, and with only one out, it seemed like Eickhoff’s worst inning of...

The joys of watching Chris Sale

The joys of watching Chris Sale

It’s an experience unlike any other. Tuesday’s game, overall, by the end, was somewhat crushing. At the end of the day it was just a loss in the middle of May coming off a five-game win streak. Those are bound to happen, and the Red Sox were bound to lose one eventually. However, this was a game where all of the chips seemed to be falling into place for Boston. They got three home runs from the middle of their lineup in the first three innings. They got two errors from Nolan Arenado, possibly the best defensive third baseman in the game and certainly one of the best in recent memory....

Game 42 Gamethread: Red Sox vs. Rockies

Game 42 Gamethread: Red Sox vs. Rockies

The Red Sox have won five in a row and are now welcoming in a team that we rarely get to see in the Rockies. This is, of course, a rematch of the 2007 World Series, just with some new faces. Among those faces is that of Nolan Arenado, perhaps the best player we almost never see. I’m excited for this little two-game series, but it will be tough for the Red Sox. They start off with Chris Sale on the mound to face off against Kyle Freeland. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM ET. This will be your space to discuss the game. Go Sox!

Red Sox vs. Rockies lineup: Sale seeks Sox’s sixth straight win

There really aren’t a lot of good synonyms for “win” that start with S, sadly. The Red Sox (22-19), winners of five straight, face the cursed National League Rockies (19-21) tonight in a 7:10 p.m. interleague battle at Fenway Park. Chris Sale pitches. That’s right, Jack! Fresh off an 8-inning, 1-run, 14 strikeout performance against the lowly Orioles, Sale faces a real baseball team with two perpetual MVP candidates in Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado, and a third one now in Trevor Story. They also face Kyle Freeland, a good lefty who has had a rough go of it this season......

Rockies 12, Padres 2: The perfect type of win

This one was never close The Rockies easily beat the Padres 12-2 on Friday. The win brings the Rockies ever so closer to getting back to .500, as they now sit at 18-20 and 6.5 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. German does it all The Rockies jumped to a 2-0 lead after three innings, but they exploded for seven runs in the fourth to make it a 9-0 game. Silver Slugger German Márquez played a role in the offensive outburst, hitting a three run double. Daniel Murphy then drove Márquez in with a double of his own. Márquez wasn’t bad on the mound, either. He gave up 10 hits, and that...

Rockies fan confidence is high, but their playoff odds are low

Rockies fan confidence is high, but their playoff odds are low

And what else was good and bad this week The Rockies have lost more games than they’ve won since last Friday, starting their division home stand 2-3 with a postponement. There’s been some things to like in that time. Or, for the purposes of This Week in Purple, let’s look at what’s been good and bad. What was good The offense has been mashing. Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon both have wRC+’s over 200 in those five games, which is welcome but not entirely surprising. But Chris Iannetta and Ian Desmond also have adjusted batting lines over 200 in those games, which is equally...

Rockies news and links for May 10, 2019 Rockies wipe away Giants despite gloomy conditions, win 12-11 | Mile High Sports Denver found itself in a wintry spring wonderland on Thursday, with snow continuing most of the day. After a game postponed Wednesday, it seemed doubtful that the show would go in on the snow, but carry on it did. The early lead helped, despite a real battle with the Giants. The back-to-back home runs by Nolan Arenado and Mark Reynolds early on didn’t hurt. After Arenado’s slow start to 2019, he seems to have figured the new season out, comfortable near the top of...

Thanks to an offensive outburst on Thursday afternoon, the Colorado Rockies salvaged a split with the San Francisco Giants in their weather-shortened two-game series at chilly Coors Field.

Rockies’ Nolan Arenado’s second homer of game erased by botched replay review

Nothing is stopping Nolan Arenado these days. Not opposing pitchers, near-freezing temperatures or May snowflakes. Well, almost nothing.

Rockies rally to beat Giants 12-11 at wintry Coors Field

Nolan Arenado homered among his three hits and Chris Iannetta hit a go-ahead two-run double in the sixth inning to lead the Colorado Rockies over the San Francisco Giants 12-11 on Thursday on a cold, sometimes wintry day at Coors Field.
