McKenry’s walk-off helps Colorado Rockies avoid the sweep

  It just doesn’t have the same feel to it. When the Colorado Rockies were jumping up and down with Michael McKenry, who hit his first-ever walk-off home run in the 11th inning on Wednesday to give the Rockies a 7-5 victory, the celebration rang hollow.

He was a top prospect coming...

WATCH: Brewers score three runs on a wild pitch

Reading that headline, you’re probably baffled. Three runs on a wild pitch? What the hell? Oh, so that’s how it happened – a terrible throw by Michael McKenry let the second run score, and some heads up baserunning allowed Jean Segura to score the third run. You *really* don’t see that every day.
