Suzie and Brendan break down nearly everything that went wrong against the Giants while celebrating everything that went right for Patrick in San Francisco. Kuhl loses it despite tying a career-high eight strikeouts and the lineup produces just four hits in third and final game of the series sweep. Rockies battle more than just the Giants as elements in San…

The altitude of Denver is a silent killer of many athletic performances, particularly as it concerns marathon runners and pitchers. One of the more visible variables of sport is that of the wind. Chicago may be well known for its chilly gusts, but San Francisco and it’s ballpark on the bay may be even more infamous. According to outfielder Yonathan...

Since the year 2000, nearly three times as many MLB players have come from the Los Angeles metro area than any other city in the world. But for the Colorado Rockies, San Francisco is the town where most of the American-born players identify with the most. Robert Stephenson, Dom Nuñez and Garrett Hampson all considered the San Francisco Giants their...

Displaying a creative and appropriate use of an opener during a 7-2 victory, San Francisco showed Colorado how strategical ingenuity can be the difference in holding onto the final spot as the National League Wild Card and being an also-ran. Reliever Caleb Barager retired the side in order to start the game before starting pitcher Logan Webb took over in the second inning before leaving in the seventh. Not a bad approach for a club trusting two rookies during a pennant race: one with a 4.58 ERA entering the game and one who had thrown more than 5.1 innings only once in 11 games. It’s been two years since the Tampa Bays employed the use of a reliever to pitch…

It was the same sad story for the Colorado Rockies during a 5-2 loss to San Fransisco on Tuesday night. Very good starting pitching. Offensive struggles. Bullpen blunders. Kyle Freeland would not get the decision following his ninth quality start in twelve attempts, nor would his counterpart Drew Smyly. Instead, the loss would go to the bullpen which were without...

The Colorado Rockies were down 6-1. They lost the day before 23-5. Kyle Freeland, the heart and soul of the team, could only muster two innings and gave up four runs in his second consecutive lackluster outing. They looked lost and listless. They looked ready to lose their third straight in non-competitive fashion. They looked to be stuck in a...

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…. It was a 23-5 drubbing at the hands of the Giants that signaled the call for concern about not only the Rockies bullpen, but starter Jon Gray and the entire offense. Excluding a tremendous two homer performance by Garrett Hampson – the only two hits for Colorado until the eighth – there was simply nothing for which to be proud other than a handful of strong at bats late when the game was out of reach. Gray surrendered seven runs by the time his turn was complete in the third inning. In the process of throwing just 64 pitches, several over the heart of the plate, his earned…

The Colorado Rockies took the series 3-1 from the San Francisco Giants on Thursday afternoon, but it wasn’t easy. It looked for a moment like Mauricio Dubon had ruined a fantastic afternoon from Kyle Freeland and stolen a victory for the Giants when a three-run jack in the seventh suddenly put Colorado behind, 3-1. The Rockies responded with ferocity, plating...

It started like a typical Jon Gray outing: perfect through two innings and no hits until the third inning. It was also a lot like a typical Rockies’ game from 2017-18 with the home club trailing, yet moving toward the necessary momentum to win late, maybe even in walk-off fashion. Alas, it didn’t play out as the Coors Field faithful would have liked in a 4-3 loss to the Giants. The Wolf of Blake Street worked into the fourth before San Francisco notched their first hit; however, the next batter produced a home run that would turn the tide for the purple. “He’s a warrior. He kept us in that ballgame,” Tony Wolters said of Gray’s performance Wednesday night. Defensive…

If German Márquez is going to win a Cy Young Award, he’s going to have to pitch deep into ballgames and carve up opposing hitters via the strikeout. The 25-year-old starter did exactly that against San Francisco through 7.1 innings with nine K’s to just one walk in Colorado’s 5-2 victory. It’s their fourth consecutive win, putting the team at 8-2 through their first 10 games for only the second time in franchise history. Entering Tuesday’s game, it would have appeared that Márquez had been owned by the Giants when glancing at his 2-4 record with a 6.60 ERA through nine starts against the Bay Area ball club. However, 11 of his 33 runs allowed came in his last start…

Well, the Colorado Rockies lost a nationally televised baseball game. But it could not have mattered less. It’s still February. The 9-6 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco Giants may mean little, but the performance of Jeff Hoffman, one of the guys on the roster who most needed a quality Spring Training, is troubling. Player of the Game...

The best thing the Colorado Rockies can say about the homestand they’ve just completed is that it’s over. Another devastating loss, by a score of 11-8 to the Giants, concluded a four-game sweep at the hands of their divisional opponents and dropped them into last place in the NL West. It was a brutal afternoon for starter Jon Gray who...

The Colorado Rockies’ season continues to spiral away from them. When they pitch, they can’t hit, and when they hit, they can’t pitch right now. We saw a little bit of both on Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants as the bats fell silent for the first eight innings, and the moment they awoke the pitching fell apart en...

Whether it’s games lost in terrible blowouts or by the smallest of margins, the Colorado Rockies just can’t seem to put together a complete effort on the baseball diamond right now. They got about as much as could be asked for out of starter Chi Chi González, if not more,  who was promoted to the roster between games of the...

DENVER – With a doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants scheduled for the Colorado Rockies on Monday, RHP Yency Almonte was added to the roster as the 26th Man. It became apparent very quickly that an arsenal of pitchers was more appropriate for Game One. A rough first inning by German Márquez became a rough start which evolved into a...

DENVER – When the city of Denver woke up this morning, the possibilities of the Giants-Rockies game this afternoon was in serious jeopardy. What no one could have imagined was San Francisco first baseman Tyler Austin swatting two home runs and driving in six runs, one side erasing a seven run deficit, and a ninth inning with the tying run at second, amongst the many heart rattling moments in a ballgame just short of four hours. And yet, even though the Rockies would tie a franchise record by allowing four or more runs for the fifteenth consecutive game, a win against a divisional rival is exactly that: a win. The weather at first pitch was overcast and only 39 degrees. The…

DENVER – The Colorado Rockies got their season back on track a few weeks ago when the starting pitching clicked but have struggled in the last five days to get even quality starts. Another bad outing from a starter, this time Antonio Senzatela, doomed the Rox in the first game of their series against the San Francisco Giants. The Rockies...

With one swing of the bat, Nolan Arenado reminded the Colorado Rockies what success looks like. With a pair aboard in another tight game in the fifth, he jumped all over a fastball and crushed it into the left field bleachers for a three-run jack. And you could feel the entire squad exhale. It was his first home run of...
