Yesterday, I pointed out that the Rockies have managed to clinch on October 1 all three years the have made it to the postseason, but that's not the only trivia Rocktober brings.
Have a little fun. Answer the following questions for all three playoff clinching games.
- Regular Season Game Number
- Opposing Team
- Rockies' Starting Pitcher
- Opposing Team's Starting Pitcher
- Winning Pitcher
- Losing Pitcher
- Player with game-winning RBI
- Player with game-winning run
- Game-ending play
- Final Score
- Eliminated team
The answers are after the jump, but don't peek.
