  • Blackmon homers as Rockies top Padres 2-1

    Denver Post "The air, even up there at the 5,280-foot marker on the Rooftop party deck, felt heavier Tuesday night at Coors Field.

  • Kennedy, Headley deal loss to Rockies

    San Diego Union-Tribune "If the Colorado Rockies were in a buyers’ role this trade season – and they’re not even close, farther away than the Padres -- you know they’d be making a California Chrome-like run at Ian Kennedy.

    Fox Sports "Rockies All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki created a stir over the weekend when he indicated to the Denver Post that he would be open to a trade, saying, “I want to be somewhere where there’s a chance to be in the playoffs every single year.” Well, a deal probably will not happen before July..."

The Dodgers took three out of four in the series with their starting pitchers in the three victories —..." July 07

  • Rockies break five-game losing streak, hang on to edge Dodgers' rally

    Denver Post "There's a pecking order to the home run bat-flip and rooster walk.

Second-year Dodgers bomber Yasiel Puig, on the other hand, is king of the jerk-and-chuck,..." July 06

  • Tulowitzki sounds like he wants to be traded to a contender

    Denver Post "Free falling from playoff contention toward rock bottom, if the Rockies make a big move in 2014 it will be to trade shortstop Troy Tulowitzki or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

  • Clayton Kershaw keeps zeroing in on history as Dodgers blank Rockies

    Los Angeles Times "In the 57 seasons the Dodgers have called Los Angeles their home, only two pitchers have recorded scoreless innings streaks longer than Clayton Kershaw's.

  • Stephen Strasburg, Nationals have their way with the Rockies in 7-1 win

    Washington Post "The Washington Nationals arrived at the easy way to avoid controversy, the best method to scuttle any lingering hard feelings.

    Denver Post "Jhoulys Chacin thinks something is wrong with his right arm. He's not sure what, but throwing 86 mph fastballs tells him something is not right.

  • Brewers prevail over Rockies in Mile-high slugfest

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "Pitching knowing that your spot in the starting rotation might be hanging in the balance is pressure enough. Doing so at Coors Field?

  • Barnes' inside-the-park home run rallies Rockies past Giants

    Denver Post "Brandon Barnes doesn't carry a power-hitting reputation. He has just two home runs this season. He's a grinder, a mucker — always mussing and messing and getting dirty.

Tulowitzki..." June 14

  • Game's over, but Walt Weiss isn't done fighting

    Denver Post "Manager Walt Weiss stomped out of a dugout at Coors Field, and if looks could kill, we would be holding a wake for Atlanta Braves pitcher David Carpenter right now.

  • Matzek wows the home crowd with a dominant debut, Rockies win 8-2

    Purple Row "In a year where starting pitchers have been dropping like flies, the Rockies were desperate for someone to step up.
