The SimRockies are currently 5-4, which puts their pace a few games short of that promised 94-win season, but if they win today, they’ll be right back on track. Both of today’s starters have strong numbers against the opposing team: Current Padres are hitting .200/.294/.333 against Chi Chi González, while the Rockies are hitting...

Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon homer as the Rockies drop Game 2 of the series to the Padres It was a great start for Antonio Senzatela through the first two innings, throwing just 20 pitches to get six consecutive outs, but it went downhill by the third inning.

Colorado 6, San Diego 5: Rockies take simulated home opener with late inning heroics by McMahon

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies come from behind to win in dramatic fashion powered by McMahon homer in the 8th and an excellent bullpen performance. Ryan McMahon hit a clutch three-run home run in the bottom of the 8th off of Emilio Pagan to give the Rockies the lead and the win in an up and down game against the San Diego Padres. The bullpen stepped up after a lackluster performance by Jeff Hoffman to hold the Padres scoreless over the last four innings and secure the victory in the simulated home opener. Clutch hitting Rockies batters showed resilience early in the game...
