Playoff Clinching Trivia

New, comments

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.

  1. Location
  2. Manager
  3. Date
  4. Regular Season Game Number
  5. Opposing Team
  6. Rockies' Starting Pitcher
  7. Opposing Team's Starting Pitcher
  8. Winning Pitcher
  9. Losing Pitcher
  10. Player with game-winning RBI
  11. Player with game-winning run
  12. Game-ending play
  13. Final Score
  14. Eliminated team

The answers are after the jump, but don't peek.
