Rockies 9, Nationals 5: Márquez battles and offense carries the day

Daniel Murphy returns to help Márquez and the offense take the series from the Nats

The Rockies took the series from the Nationals on Wednesday despite a shaky start and finish. Márquez struggled with his command through the first three innings, culminating in a two-run homer by Juan Soto that put the Rockies in a 3-0 whole. In the bottom of the third, the Rockies answered back with 4 runs, 3 of which came on Raimel Tapia’s bases-clearing double. With the bases loaded in the 4th,...

Daniel Murphy is back and ready to help the Rockies bounce back after last night’s loss

The Rockies fell to the Nationals last night 6-3, their second loss in four games. However, they are still winners of seven of their last nine. Daniel Murphy was activated off the Injured List this morning after being out since March 30 with a fractured finger. He will bat third in today’s lineup. German Márquez takes the mound again for the Rockies after pitching last week with an infected tooth. He...

Colorado Rockies: The troubling stats behind Pat Valaika’s struggles | Rox Pile

The Rockies found themselves in a bit of a conundrum on Monday after Tyler Anderson’s short outing led to Chad Bettis being used as long relief in the team’s come-from-behind victory. Chad was a primary candidate to start yesterday’s game in place of the injured Kyle Freeland, but instead the Rockies had to call up Jeff Hoffman for a spot start. To make...

Nationals 6, Rockies 3: Missed opportunities and a couple bad innings cost Rockies

This game was there for the Rockies in a couple ways, until it wasn’t.

The Colorado Rockies technically left fewer men on base than the Washington Nationals in their 6-3 loss on Wednesday. You can count the three important times the Rockies had men on and a chance to score. But in a game that was close almost throughout, those missed opportunities felt more glaring, especially for a team that is still spotty on offense.

Rockies receive mixed news in training room, lose top starter | Mile High Sports

The next to suffer in a long line of injuries for the Rockies is star pitcher Kyle Freeland, who has a blister on a finger on his throwing hand. The team wants to play it safe and make sure this injury can heal properly before asking Freeland to pitch again. He’ll be eligible to play again versus the Milwaukee Brewers on the road. This is his first time being out for...

Rockies 7, Nationals 5: Nolan’s 1,000th career hit pushes the Rockies over the Nats

The third baseman added two doubles and an exceptional game-ending double-play.

The Colorado Rockies gave us taco’s once again as they took down the Nationals in the series opener at Coors Field, 7-5. That makes seven wins in their last eight games after starting the season 3-12.

1,000 (or 190) reasons to love Nolan

The game was tied 5-5 when Nolan Arenado led of the bottom of the seventh inning. He took a 1-0 cutter deep to left field to give the Rockies a 6-5 lead. Oh, and it was his...

Fresh off their first home series win of the season, the Rockies welcome the Washington Nationals to Coors Field for a three game set beginning Monday night.

The Nats are 10-10 to start the season and are coming off a series loss in Miami. They narrowly avoided the sweep thanks to Stephen Strasburg throwing eight shutout innings with 11 strikeouts (meaning the Rockies won’t have...

Rockies place Kyle Freeland on 10-day IL

The Rockies announced today that southpaw Kyle Freeland has been placed on the 10-day inured list with a blister. He’ll be replaced by fellow southpaw Tyler Anderson, who was activated from his own stint on the IL. It had been hoped that the blister to Freeland’s left middle finger wouldn’t require any time on the shelf, but it seems not to have responded quite as well as had been hoped. Blisters can become major problems for pitchers, though there’s no reason at this point to think...

Pebble Report: Dom Nuñez hits 3 home runs to finish week

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from April 15-21, 2019

Dom Nuñez is one of those prospects who feels like he should be older than he is because he’s been around so long. The lefty-hitting catcher has appeared on 12 consecutive PuRPs lists, dating back to 2013. Yet he’s just 24-years-old. If all goes well for Nuñez, he’d be on track to debut at about the same age as Tom Murphy did in 2015.

Nuñez only played in two games this past week, but...

Rockies follow Gray’s lead, capture series win over Phillies | Mile High Sports

The Rockies won in Sunday’s game against the Phillies, winning the series. While there were a few red flags, there were many promising signs, too, like Charlie Blackmon going 3-4 after starting the season in a bit of a slump. Tony Wolters also put together some offense, going 2-3. Jon Gray showed us some of his glory, throwing just a one-hitter, striking out five and...

Jon Gray notched his 20th career win at Coors Field Sunday with an impressive performance, shutting out the Phillies for six innings in a 4-1 Rockies victory.

Charlie Blackmon’s dramatic walk-off could be the exact boost the Rockies need to permanently escape early-season slump | Denver Post ($)

It was only a matter of time, some will say, before Charlie Blackmon found his groove again. And he did so in spectacular fashion on Friday night, breaking out of a season-long slump by hitting a two-run walk-off home run against the Phillies. For Chuck, though, Kyle Newman writes, it was just another day...
