Found September 06, 2012 on Rockies Review:
The end is near for the 2012 Rockies.It almost would have been fitting for the 2012 Colorado Rockies to have a no-hitter thrown against them. It looked like it might happen for six innings as the Braves held on to a 1-0 win in Atlanta on Wednesday night.More fitting, Jordan Pacheco was the Rockie who ended the no-hit bid with his single in the top of the 7th inning.Despite being dominated by Braves pitcher Mike Minor for the majority of the night, the pitching staff did a great job of keeping the offense in the game. Once the Rockies finally broke through, they had a couple of opportunities to actually win the game. After Pacheco's 7th inning single, he immediately stole second base, giving his teammates three outs to record another base hit to tie the game up.Minor, however, sandwiched a walk to Andrew Brown with three strikeouts to Ramon Hernandez, Chris Nelson and DJ LeMahieu. Without Pacheco's single, the Rockies would have been looking at going to the 8th inning without...

Rockies lose after pitcher mishandles ball

Video: Keep your eye on the ball!!!

Dante Bichette’s Unbelievable 1999 Season

Rockies hitters have always had a hard time producing above-average seasons once context is applied. As a team, the club has never compiled a season with a 100 wRC+. Outsized park factors continuously knock their stats down a few pegs, as do the adjustments hitters have to make to differing altitudes when the team hits the road. Even with that as a backdrop though, Dante Bichette’s...

Jhoulys Chacin's mishandling of throw back from catcher allows Braves to score (Video)

Colorado Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin mishandled the throwback from catcher Wilin Rosario during the second inning of Thursday's MLB game against the Atlanta Braves. The goof was critical as it allowed Braves runner Juan Francisco to score from third base...and it ended up being the only run scored in the game.  Is it any wonder that the Rockies are in last place...

So, the Rockies lost on a Fouled up Catcher, Pitcher Exchange

Have to admit we can't recall seeing a team lose, ever, when the pitcher missed the catcher's return throw. But now we've seen it, once -- after a pitch by Colorado Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin was... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Troy Tulowitzki versus Chris Carpenter?

Troy Tulowitzki versus Chris Carpenter – one of baseball’s top hitters against the former Cy Young Award winner and member of the defending World Champions.

Both players were on the disabled list when the Colorado Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals met for four in St...

Rockies Notes: 9/7

The Colorado Rockies lost a tough game Thursday afternoon as for the second consecutive day the Rockies fell 1-0 to the Atlanta Braves. It was the first time in franchise history that the Rockies have lost consecutive 1-0 games, but perhaps the biggest takeaway from this game was how the lone run of the day scored. 

Minor's improvement showing in recent starts

ATLANTA Mike Minor had a simple explanation why the Colorado Rockies couldnt touch his pitches. I threw a lot of crap in there early, he said. I dont think they knew what was coming. If confusion was his best ally, he should employ it more often. Minor struggled with his control, as has often been the case this year, but he didnt allow a hit until the seventh inning on Wednesday...

Dugout Digest - an unsung hero

All the talk around Atlanta's pitching staff has been around Kris Medlen and Craig Kimbrel, but last night showed that Mike Minor is just as crucial a part of the Braves staff. Minor threw seven one hit innings last night against the Rockies in the Braves 1-0 win, and he's sheared his ERA down by two runs since the beginning of June. Since the All-Star Break, Minor...
