After a very disappointing loss against the Phillies, the Rockies turned around and man-handled them twice. Glad to see them not flinching offensively even without Tulo. Big road trip coming up. Time to get that road record at or above .500.

Rockies 37-33, alive and well! Go Rockies!

Yes indeed! Rox take 2 of 3 from Phila, are now 37-33 at .529

We're a half-game behind AZ (37-32) who lost today to the Padres who've won 6 straight and 8 of last 10;
We're a full game ahead of the Giants (35-33) who lost today to Atlanta.

It was a good day all around for the Rox!

No doubt they'd like to have Friday night's game back and not let the bullpen give up 6 runs in two innings.
If we had held the Phillies and won that game, we'd be in first place by a half game.

True, but today is June 17th. Nobody cares about 1st place right now. Come late September is when it matters. Meanwhile the Rockies' pitching, while much better than many of us expected it to be, has been exposed as the weak link on this team. Maybe they'll bring in an arm by the deadline.

On the other hand, the bullpen hasn't blown too many games like that. A couple, but that happens in baseball.

And as I keep noting, it's crowded at the top in the NL West. Padres won again last night and improve to 35-34. In fourth place but just 2 out of first. It's a hot summer!

Go Rockies!

I hope the Rox will be able to continue the hot streak-I try to catch a game when I can on TV.

Go Rockies!

We should mention Jhoulys Chacin, 8 2/3 innings, 74 pitches through 8 innings (and only one 3 ball count through 8), 6 H, 3 K, and tons of ground ball outs.

On an even better note, Cole Hamels falls to 2-10.

De La Rosa pitched 7 innings of 1-hit baseball. Awesome stuff.

Belisle comes in to pitch the 8th, promptly issues a single, a walk, a sacrifice to put runners on 2nd and 3rd, then a single to score two runs. Way to go bullpen!

Rox lose 2-0....

sound of man groaning
again

Another extremely frustrating game. Outstanding outing by DLR, only to have it wasted by the bullpen.

And again the bats are nowhere to be found. Rocks have got to be the most inconsistent hitting team in baseball. One night they light it up with 12 runs on 17 hits, the next night the get shutout on 3 hits. what gives?!

I know Troy's bat was red hot before he went down with the rib, but other guys have to step up.

Rox lost again in Toronto, 8-2.

Jeff Francis is digging himself a hole that will be hard to escape; in six innings he gave up 10 hits, 8 runs, and 3 home runs to the AL East basement dwellers.

Rox now 37-35.
