Much has rightfully been made of the Atlanta Braves prodigious rookies in Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies whose storming onto the scene has led directly to their surprising leap into contention. But the Colorado Rockies have a pair of young players who have had far more tumultuous rides to and at the MLB level who have been coming into their...

Is Minute Maid Park a baseball stadium, or a rocket launching pad? At the end of the day, it’s just another “one” in the loss column, no matter how ugly it got. The Colorado Rockies, while not getting the sweep against the defending World Series champion Houston Astros on their own turf that they were hoping for, left H-Town with...

DENVER – Colorado Rockies starter Chad Bettis may well have been pitching to stay in the rotation down the stretch. After his brutal outing against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his first game back off the Disabled List, questions were starting to rise about whether or not Colorado had time to let him get right, or if he might better be...

DENVER – One night after one of their worst games as a collective, the Colorado Rockies bullpen allowed just two hits and did not give up a run, backing up a decent outing from Jon Gray and making sure a clutch home run from rookie Ryan McMahon would hold up as the game-winner over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Rockies...

DENVER – It was a strange afternoon for Rockies starter German Marquez who surrendered seven hits and three runs in the first three innings. He was getting hit hard and often but also still piling up the swings and misses. He pitched only the 86th immaculate inning in MLB history, striking out three batters on nine pitches in the fourth....

DENVER – On paper, the pitching matchup on Coors Field for Tuesday night was nothing short of inspirational. Chad Bettis facing off against Jameson Taillon in a battle of testicular cancer survivors had emotions running high before even a single pitch was thrown.

DENVER – When the Colorado Rockies drafted the hometown kid in the first round of the 2014 Draft, nights like these are what they had in mind and what fans began to dream about. Kyle Freeland has become the response to the notion that pitching with consistent quality in Colorado, at Coors Field, is impossible. He tossed another beauty on Monday night...

Absolutely nothing has come easy for the Colorado Rockies since embarking on this road trip to the NL Central. Having been walked off on three times in five games, they looked primed to suffer the fate again. Blowing yet another save, the club was bailed out by the King of Clutch, Nolan Arenado, who launched his 29th home run of...

The Colorado Rockies just cannot seem to figure out a way to win in St. Louis against the Cardinals. In another tight contest, the visitors took a lead into the final inning thanks to some phenomenal pitching by Antonio Senzatela, Seunghwan Oh, and Adam Ottavino, but Wade Davis couldn’t close the deal, falling victim to a trio of singles, the...

The Colorado Rockies got a big swing from their best player and mostly played well in a place that has not been kind to them throughout their history but another seventh-inning collapse ultimately led to a St. Louis Cardinals walk-off 5-4 win in extras. Both starters, Carlos Martinez and Tyler Anderson, pitched well in the early going but left the...

DENVER – One of the truisms across all professional sports is that when teams are performing well they are getting contributions from everyone; the proverbial “it’s a different guy every night.” On this night at Coors Field, in front of another capacity crowd, Pat Valaika was that guy. Optioned to Triple-A earlier in the season after he was unable to...

DENVER – The Oakland Athletics came into their series at Coors Field with a .781 winning percentage since June 19, the only team with a better record in MLB than the Colorado Rockies during that span. But Colorado once again beat a good team by executing the fundamentals; great pitching and defense combined with timely hitting. That combo led to...

The Colorado Rockies and Houston Astros battled in a closely contested ballgame for most of Tuesday night at Coors Field after about an hour-long rain delay. The clubs looked on an even playing field and the late-game momentum was even with the home team, but a few key errors on defense and an implosion from their closer saw the Rockies...

The Colorado Rockies were due for a clunker. After having already won the road series against division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the odds were not in their favor with youngster Antonio Senzatela making just his third start of the season against Zack Greinke who has been one of the best pitchers in baseball for most of the last decade. Senzatela...

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...
