Colorado Rockies Baseball News

  • Gray gets start in opener vs. Royals
    The Rockies head to Kansas City for their final games at an American League park this season when they open a three-game series on Tuesday against the Royals.
  • CarGo breakout could give Rockies big boost
    Carlos Gonzalez's season-long offensive woes have taken a toll on him.
  • Reynolds goes deep, but Rox fall in finale
    Chase Anderson allowed one run in five innings in his first start back from the disabled list, and Jesus Aguilar hit two home runs as the Brewers remained two games back of the Cubs in the NL Central. The Rockies, who lost two of three in the series, remain one game up on the D-backs in the NL Wild Card chase. Mark Reynolds had a home run, but the Rockies were 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position.
  • A big 'fail' for Anderson on Players Weekend
    Many of the Rockies nicknames for Players Weekend are dead giveaways. "Cargo" and "Nado" aren't exactly head-scratchers. But two monikers that will be worn Friday through Sunday on the jerseys of pitcher Tyler Anderson and infielder Ian Desmond are slightly more complex.
  • Scuffling offense has slowed Rockies
    With the playoff race heating up, now is not a good time for the Rockies' bats to go cold. Since their Aug. 6 loss to the Phillies, the Rockies have averaged 4.4 runs per game, including their 17-run barrage against the Braves on Wednesday. But remove that contest and the average falls to 3.3 runs per game.
  • Bettis solid again in second start back from DL
    Chad Bettis underwent a long recovery in his battle with testicular cancer, but things are slowly returning to normal. Bettis was economical on the mound for the second straight start in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Brewers, needing just 92 pitches in seven innings of work. In his first outing of the year last Monday, Bettis also went seven innings while throwing 90 pitches.
  • Nevin collects five hits for Asheville
    Yankees prospects Miguel Andujar and Domingo German led Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to a 3-0 win over Durham with a pair of strong performances on Sunday.

  • Lucroy reflects on journey
    Former Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy once hoped to be a Brewer for life. On Saturday, less than 13 months after he was traded away from his original organization, he reflected on an unexpected road to the Rockies.
  • Blackmon hitting more opposite-field homers
    Even Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon isn't sure what to make of a recent happy trend. He opened Friday night's 8-4 victory over the Brewers with his career-high-tying 29th homer. It went the opposite way to left-center field -- which is becoming less unusual.
  • Rockies rally late but fall to Brewers
    Jesus Aguilar had a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth as the Brewers topped the Rockies. Teammate Travis Shaw also went deep, his 27th of the season. Charlie Blackmon had an RBI single in the eighth as the Rockies tied the score, but closer Greg Holland allowed three runs in the ninth, as Colorado remained one game up in the NL Wild Card race. The Brewers are two games back of the Cubs in the NL Central. Chad Bettis settled down after a rough start, allowing three runs over seven innings.
  • Senzatela to rejoin Rockies' starting rotation
    Rookie righthander Antonio Senzatela will start Wednesday in Kansas City, but it remains unclear how long he'll stay in the rotation. Manager Bud Black did not commit to using Senzatela beyond his start against the Royals. Senzatela is starting in place of fellow rookie Jeff Hoffman, who was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.
  • Homers carry Rockies into Wild Card lead
    Charlie Blackmon, Gerardo Parra and Carlos Gonzalez each hit home runs to lead the Rockies into solo possession of the top NL Wild Card spot. The Brewers got a trio of homers as well, as Domingo Santana, Keon Broxton and Orlando Arcia each went deep. German Marquez got the victory, his 10th of the season.
  • Arenado: Getting hits better than taking them
    Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado wants to lift his team to the postseason so bad it hurts. But despite being hit on the left hand twice in the last week, he had a two-run triple Friday against the Brewers.
  • Rox option Hoffman, McMahon to Triple-A
    Jeff Hoffman and Ryan McMahon were sent down to the Minors as part of a series of roster moves, the Rockies announced Friday.
  • Leader Watch: Blackmon on pace for 30-30-15
    The Rockies dropped a 10-4 matinee to the Braves on Thursday, but that didn't stop Charlie Blackmon from doing his thing.
  • Bats can't provide enough in loss to Braves
    Ender Inciarte homered twice and the Braves launched four solo shots off Rockies rookie starter Jeff Hoffman in a 10-4 victory at Coors Field. The result pushed the Rockies into a tie with the D-backs for the top National League Wild Card spot.
  • Black will consider using 'Votto' alignment
    When the Cubs used four outfielders against Reds slugger Joey Votto earlier this week, Cubs manager Joe Maddon did something rarely seen before in baseball.
  • Adversity no roadblock to resilient Rox
    In the pregame media session on Thursday morning, Rockies manager Bud Black was asked a couple questions about postseason possibilities.
  • Rox rout Braves, take lead for NL Wild Card
    After scoring three or fewer runs in eight straight games, the Rockies jumped all over opposing starter Mike Foltynewicz for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings and beat the Braves, 17-2. Every Rockies' starting position player scored, Trevor Story homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs, DJ LeMahieu tallied four hits and four runs, and Gerardo Parra and Mark Reynolds each had four RBIs.
