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.
With only a handful of wins over the past two years, the Colorado Rockies have grown to loathe their annual visits to AT&T Park.
Ryan Howard hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Rockies fell to the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-3, on Wednesday.
Pinch-hitter Charlie Culberson felt good about his swing and then felt even better an instant later when he saw the ball he hit sail over the center field fence.
Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead homer leading off the fifth and Franklin Morales outdueled Madison Bumgarner, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
Initially inserted into the Colorado Rockies’ rotation as a stop-gap injury replacement, Jordan Lyles has rapidly become a fixture.
After a rough first inning, Juan Nicasio settled in and threw six solid innings to help save a depleted bullpen as the Rockies got a rare road win with a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres.
Tommy Kahnle and four relievers combined for two-hit ball over six innings after Brett Anderson was injured, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 1-0 victory over Matt Cain and the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
Justin Morneau wears Larry Walker’s old number and is stepping in for Todd Helton. Just so it’s clear, though: He doesn’t expect to be the next Walker and certainly isn’t trying to make Colorado Rockies fans forget all about Helton.
Madison Bumgarner took another positive step in preparation for his first opening-day start, throwing three scoreless innings Tuesday in the San Francisco Giants’ 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
