Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.
If this bad stretch wasn’t bad enough, the Colorado Rockies could be losing one of their top players.
Miguel Montero hit a leadoff homer in the 10th inning after Martin Prado hit a two-run single in the ninth, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks end a four-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Colorado Rockies Wednesday night.
Troy Tulowitzki homered, had two doubles and drove in three runs to lead the big-hitting Colorado Rockies to an 8-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night.
Colorado Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez nearly hit the new Coors Field Rooftop bar during the home opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks last Friday, but he doesn’t think anybody ever hit one that far.
Mark Trumbo homered for the fourth straight game, and the Arizona Diamondbacks averted a sweep by beating Colorado 5-3 on Sunday.
Nolan Arenado homered twice, rookie right-hander Tommy Kahnle picked up his first major league victory and Colorado overcame a four-run deficit Saturday night to beat Arizona 9-4 and send the Diamondbacks to their worst start in franchise history.
Once fans made their way inside Coors Field it was all about baseball, but outside the stadium it was all about the celebration for the Rockies home opener on Friday.
So maybe going 6 for 6 isn’t quite enough for his manager to award Charlie Blackmon the everyday job in centerfield.
Injuries mean opportunities. Diamondbacks’ Archie Bradley could land a spot in the starting rotation.
