Dodgers 6, Rockies 4: Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Tonight the Rockies had their best odds to steal a win in this six game series against the Dodgers. Naturally they blew it. If the Colorado Rockies were going to win a single game of this brutal six game marathon against the Los Angeles Dodgers, tonight was probably their best opportunity. They had their best pitcher on the mound in Kyle Freeland, were facing off against a rookie pitcher with limited experience, and even managed to have a 4-1 lead early enough for there to be some excitement. Naturally the Rockies melted down in...

Colorado Rockies game no. 158 thread: Kyle Freeland vs Michael Grove

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Freeland struggled in his final home start of the season. Can he bounce back on the road against the juggernaut Dodgers? The 65-92 Colorado Rockies kicked off a brutal six game final series against the Los Angeles Dodgers by getting demolished 10-1. Their only run came against a position player pitching in the top of the ninth inning. Maybe that’s the worst of it out of the way early? The Rockies need just one win to avoid having their second worst season by record in team history. They need to win every single remaining game to...

Saturday Rockpile: Germán Márquez in 2022: more sinkers, hit harder than ever

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, October 1, 2022 The 2022 season has not been kind to Colorado Rockies righty Germán Márquez. With one start remaining in the campaign, Márquez has been tagged for a 5.12 ERA, 4.81 FIP and sits in the top-three in the league in home runs surrendered with a whopping 30. This is the same Márquez that racked up 648 strikeouts and a 4.18 ERA over 622 innings pitched from 2018-2021, leading all Colorado hurlers with a 15.6 fWAR in that span. Despite only producing a winning season in one of...

Dodgers 10, Rockies 1: Dodgers set the tone for the six game series.

Photo by Harry How/ I’m not sure what else I was expecting. The Seattle Mariners broke their 21 year playoff drought—the longest in baseball—for their first postseason appearance since 2001. Catcher Cal Raleigh hit a two out, two strike walk-off home run to send the Mariners into October Baseball. The Baltimore Orioles were eliminated with the Mariners win, but were playing meaningful, exciting baseball until the very end. The Colorado Rockies were blown out by the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 9-0 loss that could very well be the start of a six game sweep to cap off...

The final series of the 2022 season for the Colorado Rockies is upon us in the form of a six game marathon against the NL West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers. In order to finish the season with over 70 wins the Rockies need to win all six games. In order to tie their second worst record in franchise history (66-96 in 2014) they need to win one game. Charlie Blackmon, Connor Joe, and Carlos Estévez are done for the season. There are six games to go. Let’s get...

Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon out for the season

Usually the headline of Charlie Blackmon being out for the season would bring huge concern for the club and Colorado Rockies fans alike. While his recovery is of the upmost importance, he will only miss six games against the Dodgers in Los Angeles the rest of the way as the 2022 campaign winds down.

John Leyba-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Friday, September 30, 2022 Throughout the season, have you ever missed the beginning of a Rockies game, only to turn it on and find out they are already losing? If you’ve noticed a trend there, it’s not your imagination. The Rockies have given up more earned runs in the first inning this season than any other inning at 108. The Rockies have fallen behind in the first inning 48 times this season. Nineteen of those times, it was just 1-0, but 12 of those times, it’s been by at least three runs. In...

Giants 6, Rockies 4: Rodón’s 10 strikeouts secure a three-game sweep

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Colorado has now lost nine of their last ten games entering the final series of 2022. For the 11th time this year, Carlos Rodón has exited a start with double-digit strikeouts. Rodón is the league leader in strikeout percentage, his 33.4% a whole 1.2% ahead of second place. In that respect, Thursday night was business as usual for the established left-hander. Paired with a five-run second inning, the San Francisco Giants showed little mercy for the majority of this two-hour, 57-minute contest. In the first eight innings of this contest,...

Pessimism second: Carlos Rodón is on the hill for the Giants, looking to cap off a second-consecutive season with an ERA in the twos. The Rockies have lost eight of their last nine games, and with six games left at Dodger Stadium after tonight, a win in San Francisco could serve as a mild step forward into an otherwise difficult stretch.

The corresponding roster move? Outfielder and DH Charlie Blackmon was heading to the IL himself. He had torn his meniscus earlier in the week and now his season is over prematurely.

Giants 6, Rockies 3: 0-11 with RISP equals another loss

Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies offense remains M.I.A. It was the same story on Wednesday night for the Rockies: fall behind early, bullpen struggles, and a weak showing for the offense. The results mean the Rockies have now lost seven straight games to the Giants and four in a row overall. Giants squash Rockies bats Five different San Francisco pitchers combined to dominate the Rockies, holding them to four hits in the entire game. Through six innings, the Rockies only had two hits — a homer by Alan Trejo and a single by Yonathan Daza — and one walk...
