Bats go cold among almost all Rockies minor league affiliates, clean sweep narrowly avoided

Minor league news and notes for games the night of July 2, 2016.

Just like the big league club, Saturday was a tough day down on the farm, as the bats went cold and offenses were listless top to bottom in the Colorado Rockies' minor league system. Across seven levels, Grand Junction was the only club that won (they put up 14 runs!), and everywhere else, things were tough, to say the least.
