Troy Tulowitzki showed why he is an All-Star and the NL captain for the Home Run Derby next week.
The Colorado Rockies currently have two players on the All-Star team in Troy Tulowitzki and Charlie Blackmon, and they could have a third added.
The team has been struggling as of late, but on Sunday Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Charlie Blackmon took a moment to share their reactions to being named to the NL All-Star team.
Matt Kemp had four hits and drove in two runs, Adrian Gonzalez had three RBIs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 8-2 on Sunday.
Carlos Gomez launched a three-run homer and Matt Garza battled into the seventh inning for his first win in four starts to help the Milwaukee Brewers continue their season mastery of the Colorado Rockies with a 7-4 victory Saturday.
Tyler Matzek wasn’t nearly as successful in his second major league start as he was five days earlier. The Los Angeles Dodgers gave the 23-year-old left-hander a reality check, getting 10 hits off him and not striking out even once.
Brandon Barnes isn’t a classic power hitter. In fact, neither of the Colorado right fielder’s two home runs this season even left the park.
Racing around the bases as if his two-run homer in the ninth inning was still in play, Michael Bourn was mobbed by his teammates when he reached home plate as the Cleveland Indians completed a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 6-4 win on Sunday.
Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer in the second and added the go-ahead single in the eighth inning to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Saturday.
Last Wednesday Charlie Blackmon had the second-best batting average in baseball. He’s fallen off a bit since CBS4’s Vic Lombardi interviewed him then, but he’s batting .319 — and he still has a killer beard.
