For a team that’s only seen the postseason three times in franchise history and has suffered four losing seasons in a row, there are some trends that Colorado Rockies fans should expect this year.
Clint Hurdle has won the NL Manager of the Year award after guiding the Pittsburgh Pirates to the playoffs in their first winning season since 1992.
The Rockies put together a two-out rally in the sixth inning against Burnett, scoring five times, and Colorado overtook the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Saturday night.
Players who stood by Jim Tracy while the Colorado Rockies endured their worst season in franchise history are reiterating their support for him following the manager’s resignation over the weekend.
Clint Hurdle hasn’t had an at-bat in a major league game since 1987. The Pittsburgh Pirates manager hasn’t thought once about stepping back in either.
Kevin Correia pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones each homered, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Colorado Rockies 3-0 in the snow Friday night.
