Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario homered to lead the Colorado Rockies past the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Jorge De La Rosa (13-6) pitched into the seventh to win his third straight start. Dexter Fowler also drove in a run to help the Rockies jump out to a 5-0 lead.
Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado made a fantastic backhanded stop and in-the-air throw to first in the seventh inning to rob Jimmy Rollins of a run-scoring hit.
Rafael Betancourt tossed a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.
Tyler Cloyd (2-3) allowed five runs in six innings in his first major league start since June 12.
BEST OF MAXIM
Last night in Philly, Troy Tulowitzki was on display. He crushed his 22nd home run of the season into deep left field and then made a ranging play at short that was worthy of a Web Gem. The last seven days Tulo has hit safely in 10 of 23 at-bats and tallied five RBI and two home runs. His efforts last night led the Rox to a win over the Phils 5-3. Last night, Tulo flashed the...
Juan Nicasio has actually enjoyed success with one real pitch.Walk-off losses sting whether they are in April or September, whether the team is 20 games over .500 or 20 games under .500. The sting just seems to go away a little quicker when it's August and the race is over.At this point, with the Rockies buried in the National League West race, and nowhere near the wild card...
It's fun to watch Jorge De La Rosa pitch.Poor Jorge De La Rosa.All the Colorado Rockies left-hander does is go out and dominate. However, it seems in every one of his games, something else happens that makes his continued outstanding performance become a subplot.On Tuesday night it happened again.With the Rockies up 5-3 in the 7th inning and two men on base, Nolan Arenado made...
Troy Tulowitzki wants Ryan Braun to come clean and explain why he accepted his 65-game suspension last month. But the Rockies all-star shortstop remains friends with the disgraced former National League Most Valuable Player and said Braun never disparaged the man who collected his urine sample that tested positive during the 2011 playoffs.
Yahoo! Sports wrote that Braun tried to...
After 15 days on the disabled list, the time has come to test Carlos Gonzalez's sprained middle finger. He won’t be returning to the lineup yet, but the preliminary test is simply swinging a bat. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com that will happen Wednesday, and the Rockies will see how his finger responds.
Gonzalez sprained the middle finger on his right hand when...
The Jeff Manship has sailed. Sometimes numbers lie. That is the case with the Colorado Rockies offense.Despite trailing only the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals for the most runs in the National League, the Rockies offense is a huge disappointment.When the Rockies score runs, they come in bunches, as seen a week ago when the team scored 14 runs against the Padres in a rain...
As we covered yesterday, it looks like Yorvit Torrealba was going to be heading to the DL with a concussion. Now that move is all but official. Yesterday afternoon, the Colorado Rockies started planning their roster moves, but none have been made yet. Today things will likely be finalized.
Moves are not official yet. But Chacin will go on bereavement and Torrealba likely...
The balk rule is one of baseball’s laws that’s rarely enforced and often misunderstood. Even some major league umpires have admitted to not fully understanding its vague language about “deceiving” the runner.
On Tuesday night, Colorado Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers somehow managed to cross the umpires twice, not just in the same game, but while pitching to the same batter...
Colorado Rockies pitcher Roy Oswalt looks like he’s finally getting healthy. Roy has been out for a while because of a strained left hamstring. It was reported that on Monday he threw a 65 pitch bullpen session and is expected to pitch in a simulated game on Thursday. If everything goes well he’ll finally make a rehab start on Sunday.
Oswalt threw 65 pitches. Will throw sim...
Tony La Russa couldn't help himself.
Seated in the third row of the press box at Citizens Bank Park La Russa reacted in disbelief as Nolan Arenado made the best play of his breathtaking defensive season.
"Wow!" La Russa blurted. "What a play!"
La Russa works for the commissioner's office the first step in the rest of his life before he enters the Hall...

Draftkings gives you the opportunity to hit the escape button and start over each and every day. Rookie call ups are coming soon, so it is high time to get energized again for fantasy baseball.
