Colorado damaged San Diego’s pitching all series long to win the four-game set with Thursday’s 8-5 victory. Who was a smash success despite giving up five earned runs? Which reliever is back in Black’s good graces? And which prospect could the Rockies draft on Sunday? DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE POD! iTunes link — Stitcher Link — Pocket Casts…

It wasn’t a blowout like the night prior or a walk-off heartbreaker as in the series’ opener, but it was a loss, nonetheless. The competitive contest, 5-3, still featured 12 strikeouts for San Diego pitching for the third consecutive game. In a scene similar to Tuesday night’s loss, Colorado got a solo homer in the first – Trevor Story’s 10th of the season – before San Diego did one better with a two-run blast in the bottom of the frame by Mitch Moreland, his first in brown pinstripes. Rockies’ starter Antonio Senzatela looked solid through the middle innings of his night, excluding a bases loaded jam in the second brought on by a hit batter and two base on balls.…

Any time the score is 10-3 in pitcher’s park before your team can record it’s fourth out, it’s more than likely your club will be saddled with a loss. Tuesday’s 14-5 win gives the San Diego Padres two consecutive to start the series and four-straight against Colorado overall, not to mention making the National League’s second-best team appear poised for a deep run in this year’s postseason. For the Rockies, the silver linings range from positive to overly optimistic. Nolan Arenado staked Colorado to an early 3-0 lead with his first inning home run, his first on the road in 2020. Trevor Story swiped his 13th base of the season to take sole position of first in stolen bases across…

The Colorado Rockies continue to play good baseball, but couldn’t come up with the win in a pitcher’s duel on Tuesday night. Kyle Freeland and Dinelson Lamet were equally brilliant, in polar opposite ways. The Padres starter used a nearly unhittable fastball/slider combination to overwhelm hitters all night. Freeland pitched his typical out-think-you type of game and neither man gave...

When it comes to playing the Padres at Coors Field the last few seasons, there’s one Rockies starting pitcher that you don’t have to worry about. Unfortunately, without a complete game from Antonio Senzatela and his career 2.70 ERA against San Diego, the bullpen could not handle the final six outs. But before Rockies fans pulled out the final strand of hair from atop their collective head, a ninth-inning rally punctuated by a pinch-hit single from Daniel Murphy gave Colorado the first walk-off winner of the season in a 4-3 victory. Senzatela was the unequivocal difference for much of the game as seven scoreless innings paced the purple to down the brown in the early going before Carlos Estévez coughed…

The Colorado Rockies improved to 6-2 thanks to another full-team win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday afternoon, completing the series win.

This is the type of game the Rockies won all the time in 2017 and 2018; it’s precisely the type they lost in 2019. There were some key differences is this defeat, but the similarities were blatant. Trevor Story nearly played the hero with a late home run but an implosion from closer Wade Davis wasted an otherwise quality game from Colorado in an heartbreaking 8-7 loss to the San Diego Padres. The home team too a two-run lead in the first when Story hit a hard liner into center field for a single and was able to trot around the bases when Blackmon blasted one 464 feet to right field and into the Rockies bullpen for a two-run jack.…

You can’t win baseball games if you don’t score runs. I’m pretty sure I read that someplace. The Colorado Rockies celebrated a brief respite from losing on Friday night by recording just three hits and failing to score in their second game against the San Diego Padres on Saturday. The 3-0 loss wasted a second straight quality outing from starting...

Regardless of the five games separating Colorado from being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, the 2019 season is completely vanquished. If the Rockies are going to contend for a playoff spot next season, there’s a strong chance they will be battling with the up-and-coming San Diego Padres. Friday night wasn’t exactly a glimpse into 2020 for either team. Starting pitcher...
