DENVER – Ian Desmond wasn’t in the starting lineup less than 24 hours after drawing a walk that tied the game in an eventual walk-off the night before. But he sure was in the finishing lineup. It looked like he had won the game this time with a home run in the bottom of the 11th but it was ruled…...

Sunday’s comeback of epic proportions, a five-run rally against rival Arizona in the bottom of the eighth – the first such comeback in nearly five years – was precisely what Colorado needed. Not just because it was against another NL West squad or because they avoided a sweep. But it was how they strung together six at bats without trying…

DENVER – Poised to break out against Arizona ace Zack Greinke, it wouldn’t be until the eighth inning when the Rockies would do their most damage, scoring 5 runs against the DBacks bullpen – including a Raimel Tapia bases loaded triple – to pull ahead 8-7. Trevor Story would lead the charge in the bottom of the eighth with a…...

It’s almost never this simple, but on Saturday night at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies lost the baseball game almost entirely because of an off-night from starting pitcher Kyle Freeland. The offense didn’t exactly storm back to make it interesting, the way they did behind Tyler Anderson in the first game of the series, but a 7-0 lead after the…...

There may be no such thing as moral victories or silver linings if the Colorado Rockies end up missing the postseason. But there is a simple sweet irony in going to Arizona and sweeping the Diamondbacks in their home ballpark, eliminating the team that knocked them out a season ago. There’s no way that doesn’t feel good. But this club…...

It feels like so long ago that Antonio Senzatela was skipping Triple-A after barely a cup of coffee in Double-A to make the Colorado Rockies 2017 starting rotation out of the gate. And the fact that the then 22-year-old managed to beat Clayton Kershaw to the mark of first pitcher in the National League is something that the kid they call…...

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…...

DENVER – With Arizona Diamondback’s ace Zack Greinke on the hill on Tuesday night, the second game of this four-game set was always going to be an uphill battle for the Colorado Rockies. And it turned out to be a hill just a bit to steep to climb. They battled and gave themselves a chance to win at many turns…...

DENVER – The Colorado Rockies began a four-game set with their division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, on Monday night after a frustrating series with the Los Angeles Dodgers left them just a half-game up in the race for the NL West crown. With the Snakes looking for an opportunity to get right back into the thick of things, Colorado pounced…...

It had been a running theme even in the early stages of the 2018 season, when almost no transactions were made: If the Colorado Rockies were going to get to the postseason, they are going to need at least 35 of the men on the 40-man roster to help them get there. The “I-25ers” as we’ve come to call them,…...

Raimel Tapia has had difficulty sticking at the MLB level. There have been questions about his defensive utility and baserunning—a general concern that he may be a bit too costly in the finer details of the game—to be given a permanent spot. But there has never been any question that the kid can hit. After a back and forth affair…...

DENVER – Everyone in the Colorado Rockies clubhouse likes the days when Kyle Freeland pitches. And this was one of those days. Reeling just a few days ago from having lost nine straight at home to division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Rockies fed off the energy of their young starter to win the game 5-1 and take their fourth…...

DENVER – The Colorado Rockies have set a new inauspicious record. In losing a tough one to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night, by a score of 5-3, they have now dropped nine straight games to their division rivals in their own ballpark, a franchise record. Tyler Anderson was terrific again but the Diamondbacks grinded his pitch count and chased…...

DENVER – The Colorado Rockies just can’t get any traction with their pitching right now, dropping their fifth straight home game after starter German Marquez pitched four ugly innings and the bullpen continued to look like a group in search for anything in the neighborhood of answers. The offense once again showed promise and fight throughout the game but fell…...

Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon has cemented his name into the National League MVP conversation by being one of the best leadoff hitters in the history of the game and obliterating some long standing records. Teammate and third baseman Nolan Arenado took a moment on Monday night to remind everyone who watches baseball games just who he is and what…...
