The Rockies’ series against the Padres was interesting to say the least. It started off with the Rockies having a six-run lead they blew in the ninth inning. The Rockies had finally started to get their season on track, but this loss on Friday kind of deflated things. However, a good team will be able to shake off this kind of loss and move forward. Nolan Arenado epitomized this, saying that they were a bit dejected, but were ready to step up, because they are a solid team. They are all trying to focus on playing one game at a time, even breaking it down to one pitch at a time. Each pitch counts, and the Rockies are trying to remember this. The Rockies have the talent and the ability, it’s just a matter of plugging along and getting the job done.
The Rockies series against the Padres had just about everything. There was an inside-the-park home run, flooding, a grand slam, ejections, and more. The two teams also combined for the most combined runs scored in a series, landing at 93. It was an odd weekend, so we’ll see where the Rockies take it from here.
Trevor Story credits his dad Ken with a lot of his success. The early things his dad taught him have led Story to where he is now. He also said he thinks he’s a lot like his father in temperament. He still hears his father’s voice in his head as he plays. The Rockies wore special gear to help raise awareness of and funds for the fight against prostate cancer. It’s a great cause, and the Rockies have supported them for a while, focusing on the cause on Father’s Day.
