Despite a lockout preventing typical Hot Stove League business during baseball’s offseason, the Colorado Rockies made an announcement on Friday that suggests a promising end is coming sooner than later. Colorado will play the Arizona Diamondbacks for two Spring Training games on March 18 and 19 at Las Vegas Ballpark in Las Vegas, NV. The pair of exhibition games will…...

After an incredibly frustrating extra-inning loss in the series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Colorado Rockies absolutely dominated the visitors in the second game. Behind a phenomenal performance from their starting pitcher and more offense from the non-stars of the team, the home club emerged with easily their most dominant and complete win of the season. Player of the...

After starting the 2020 MLB season like a lion, the Colorado Rockies finished like lambs. The 11-3 loss at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks wrapped up another series loss, the fourth in their last six series with their last victory coming against the Dodgers in Los Angeles at the beginning of the month. Kyle Freeland simply did not have his stuff on Sunday and, after bouncing back impressively from an awful 2019, should walk away from the season with more pride and assurance of his abilities. The DBacks jumped on Freeland early and the 2018 Cy Young Award contender was done by the third inning following 61 pitches. In his stead, a trio of rookies recorded the final 5.1…

A few hours before the Colorado Rockies game against the Arizona Diamondbacks was set to kick off on Wednesday night, several other teams in professional sports were announcing that they would not be playing in solidarity with ongoing protests around the country considering police brutality toward black people. There was a question about whether or not the game would take...

One night after snapping a seven-game losing skid, it was a game to start a new streak and for getting individuals back into a groove as Colorado won 5-4 in Arizona on Tuesday night. Nolan Arenado slugged two RBI-doubles, Garrett Hampson broke a 1-for-21 slump to thump his second home run of the season, and Josh Fuentes made his first start after riding the pine for opening two weeks, adding a double for his first hit of the season. Starter German Márquez was not sharp with his fastball, while command of his off-speed pitches allowed him to improve upon a horrendous start against Houston last week at home. The pitch count reached 95 after five innings, but it was all…

After losing seven in a row, the Colorado Rockies are finally back in the win column after a hard-fought victory in Arizona over the Diamondbacks. Rookie starting pitcher Ryan Castellani continued to impress and the lineup got just enough offense to feel good after the final out. Player of the Game: Ryan Castellani He was once again excellent, especially considering the circumstances of his surprise call-up this season. He battled with command early, but locked in increasingly as the game went along. The vast majority of his misses were well out of the zone and when it hit his mark, he was inducing ugly swings from Diamondbacks’ hitters. He did make two mistakes in the zone that were blasted for…

The Colorado Rockies weren’t going to win every single series of 2020 and they finally dropped one on Wednesday afternoon to the Arizona Diamondbacks after a 13-7 loss at Coors Field. Moment of the Game: Kinley Comes Apart Colorado had the game all tied up at 5-5 heading into the seventh when righty reliever Tyler Kinley was called upon to continue his great start. Unfortunately, his wildness and propensity to allow base runners get the best of him. After loading the bases on a pair of seeing-eye singles and a walk, he got Starling Marte to bang one into the plate, but Nolan Arenado was unable to execute a ridiculous barehand attempt and everyone was safe. A grooved fastball to…

The Colorado Rockies improved to 12-5 thanks to an 8-7 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks that basically played out as two different ballgames. The first one saw a pitcher’s duel between Kyle Freeland and Zac Gallen that ended up playing out to a 2-2, seven-inning dray. Then things got crazy. Gallen has never allowed more than three runs in a...

There is no meaning to the end results of Spring Training games, but it still feels weird anytime a baseball game ends in a tie. That’s what happened between the two teams who share facilities at Salt River Fields when the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks tied 6-6. We saw another impressive display from a potential breakout star for the...

With hopes of starting another four-game winning streak on Tuesday night, Kyle Freeland delivered a solid start until departing unexpectedly with a groin injury in the sixth. A late comeback was not enough after Bryan Shaw couldn’t steady the ship during a five-run inning that sank the Rockies, 8-7. Freeland retired the first six batters of the game in hopes...

DENVER – When the Rockies came up to bat in the bottom half of the first inning on Bark at the Park Day, the score was 5-0 and spot-starter Jeff Hoffman’s performance was lackluster, at best. Some suggested it was ruff. The one highlight worth mentioning above all else was the Major League debut of catcher Dom Nuñez. Selected from...

DENVER – Daniel Murphy hasn’t had the beginning to his Colorado Rockies career that he wanted. Playing just a few games before breaking his finger and missing nearly a month, he was one of the few members of the lineup who came into Thursday afternoon’s game without at least decent hitting numbers. But he got the Rockies on the board...

DENVER – Jeff Hoffman may not have recorded a quality start Wednesday night, but he came darn close and bested the Diamondbacks Robbie Ray through the first five innings to get the Rockies back to .500 for the first time since March 31. It was hard to predict which team had the upper hand between these division rivals. Robbie Ray...

DENVER – For the first time in almost a week, the Colorado Rockies won a baseball game without the need for walk-off dramatics. It was a cold and stormy affair at Coors Field on Tuesday night, but the box score suggests that the Rockies played exactly the kind of game they need to in order not only to win ballgames...
