Giants 3, Rockies 2: Rox lose it in 18 innings

Giants 3, Rockies 2: Rox lose it in 18 innings

That makes 7 straight losses for the Rockies The Rockies lost their seventh consecutive game Friday night/Saturday morning, falling to the Giants 3-2 in 18 innings of play. The positive takeaway is that the Rockies only lost one game despite playing two games worth of innings. The negative is that, with a 3-11 record, the Rockies are now off to their worst start in franchise history. A momentary lead The Rockies got on the board first in the top of the fourth in rather bizarre fashion. With Garrett Hampson on third with two outs, Trevor Story hit what appeared to be an inning-ending pop up...

Friday Rockpile: Rockies hope for more out west

Rockies news and links for April 12, 2019 Rockies roam to the bay with several questions looming | Mile High Sports The Rockies are facing their second-worst start to a season in their whole history. At 3-9, they’ve been outscored by 31 runs and have seen far too many injuries for comfort. Their big stars--Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and Charlie Blackmon--haven’t quite figured out 2019. Story’s got four home runs, but that’s outmatched by his 13 strikeouts. Blackmon and Arenado are stuck in a line-drive rut, neither with a home run yet this season. Going up against the Giants in...

Monday Rockpile: Big issues for the 2019 Rockies

Rockies news and links for April 8, 2019 Rockies becoming the calamity that few expected, swept by Dodgers | Mile High Sports The Rockies got swept by the Dodgers in a major way, with Sunday’s loss a dreadful 12-6. While it is early days still, the injuries are really starting to devastate the team. With Daniel Murphy and Ryan McMahon on the IL, and then David Dahl leaving Sunday’s game early, and Trevor Story getting hit by a nasty pitch, the Rockies could be in some trouble. They’re quickly losing a lot of hitting power, and they don’t quite have the depth to make up for it....

Dodgers 12, Rockies 6: Rockies come up short on Sunday Night Baseball

Dodgers 12, Rockies 6: Rockies come up short on Sunday Night Baseball

The Rockies had some offense, but the Dodgers had more offense After only previously having four games in which the offense scored three or more runs, the Rockies offense was able to string together some runs early in the game against the Dodgers. After an early 6-0 deficit that cost Chad Bettis his start after 2 2⁄3 innings, Charlie Blackmon, Trevor Story, and Nolan Arenado strung together a series of hits in the third inning to score two runs. Ian Desmond then knocked Arenado home to cut the deficit in half, due in part to the Dodgers not knowing how many outs were in the inning and not...

Colorado Rockies game no. 9 thread: Walker Buehler vs. Jon Gray

The Rockies offense finally got going last night against the Dodgers, but just a little too late as they still lost 10-6. Five of the six runs were scored in the seventh inning or later thanks to two home runs from Trevor Story (a two-run shot in the 7th and a solo shot in the 9th) and one from David Dahl. Tyler Anderson was pulled after four innings after allowing six runs on nine hits with three walks and two strikeouts. He was tagged with the loss — his second of the young season. Jon Gray takes the mound again after his ten strikeout performance in Miami, where he was lifted with a...

Monday Rockpile: A new month marks new series for the Rockies

Rockies news and links for April 1, 2019 Takeaways from another quiet outing from Rockies’ lineup | Mile High Sports The Rockies’ wins against the Marlins to start the series were filled with offensive success. Their losses, though, saw hits few and far between and runners left on bases. Despite the strong start to the season, history repeated itself with the Rockies struggling in Miami. Their big hitters, Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and David Dahl were very quiet, going 12-for-47 in the four games. Jon Gray was quite promising in his outing, with the exception of a two-run inning in...

“He could be a 30 (home runs and) 30 (steals) guy," Nolan Arenado said. "Honestly, he has the potential to be 40/40. Who knows if he does it this year, but he has that potential. He’s a five-tool player.

7 reasons why I’m optimistic about the 2019 Rockies

A mix of on field factors and philosophical assumptions comprise the reasons The 2019 Rockies have taken shape, and I’m excited. I’ve predicted a 93-win season, and I think they can win the West. (Frankly, it’s probably their best chance to make the post-season.) Here’s why I’m optimistic, both because of on-field factors, as well as more philosophical reasons. 1. The core of this team remains intact from 2017 and 2018 Four players have moved on (Carlos González, DJ LeMahieu, Adam Ottavino, and Gerardo Parra), but Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, and Trevor Story play on in...
