St. Louis Cardinals
The Rockies should take whatever they can get for Guthrie.The Colorado Rockies and the Los Angeles Angels are the only two franchises who have never lost 100 games in a season.That might change if the Rockies keep the same pace in the second half that they have been on in the first.Dropping the Independence Day game 4-1 to the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, the Rockies hit the halfway point at exactly 31-50. Double that and the magic number is 62-100. Unacceptable for anyone who roots for the team, but possibly acceptable for the people running it.Game 81 was a fitting way to finish off the first half. It was as bland as many of the other games the Rockies weren't really ever in.

One silver lining for the Rockies, not named Carlos Gonzalez, has been outfielder Tyler Colvin. Colvin...
The Rockies got their fifth and final hit Tuesday with two out in the fourth inning. Their first hit was their biggest, a three-run homer with two out in the third by Tyler Colvin. The home run, Colvin's 10th of the season and second in two games at St. Louis, wiped out the Cardinals' 2-0 lead, built by Matt Holliday's two-run homer in the first, and gave the Rockies...
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jeff Francis worked five solid innings before the Colorado bullpen took over and Tyler Colvin hit a three-run homer as the Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Matt Holliday hit his 14th homer for the Cardinals. Carlos Beltran was 0 for 3 with a walk to end a nine-game RBI streak in which he drove in 15 runs.
Matt Belisle retired four in...
