The tailgate parties were in full swing by 9 am in the parking lot at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

The Colorado Rockies, however, decided that the party wouldn’t come inside for Brewers fans. The Rockies trounced the Brewers with a 10-0 shutout victory, starting the season 1-0 and on the right foot.

If Monday afternoon in Milwaukee represents anything for the Rockies 2015 season, things will be looking good. Everyone who the Rockies need to be good in 2015 weren’t just good, they were great.

The Rockies wasted no time, plating four runs in the first inning. Back-to-back doubles by Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki got the Rockies started. Another double by Nolan Arenado one batter later scored Tulowitzki, and a man who could be a deciding factor in how the Rockies will finish in 2015, Corey Dickerson, capped off the four-run inning with a two-run homer to right field.
