DENVER – They say in the game of baseball that it’s not about how you start, but how you finish.

Well, the Colorado Rockies have been proving that with their 2018 season and did so again on Wednesday with another dramatic come from behind thanks to a walk-off home run from pillar of the franchise, DJ LeMahieu.

In one of the greatest moments of his career, and staring down impending free agency, the mild-mannered second baseman found himself at the plate with the game hanging in the air and having come up empty twice in the last two games with the bases loaded and absolutely unleashed on one, launching it into the bleachers in right field to give his club the win over the Arizona Diamondbacks and make sure they stayed more than a game up in the NL West.
