WATCH: D-backs pitcher fails on quick pitch attempt

There’s a reason why pitchers don’t often try to sneak in a quick fastball to throw hitters off balance, and Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa showed us all why in Tuesday night’s game against the Rockies. De La Rosa was facing Ben Paulsen, and behind 1-0 in the count. He attempted to rectify that by throwing a quick pitch before Paulsen was ready. Home plate umpire...

Bullpen strikes again as Colorado Rockies swept in doubleheader

  Expect different results at your own risk. The Colorado Rockies witnessed their bullpen blow a small lead once again on Tuesday night. What was a 3-1 lead in the 7th inning quickly turned into a 5-3 deficit. Scott Oberg, who probably is miscast and not quite ready for the big leagues, was to blame again in the nightcap. Anyone watching this Rockies team for any amount of time...

One of baseball's rarest feats, triple plays are almost always bang-bang plays that are exhilarating to watch, if not only for their infrequency, but the Rockies turned a triple play on Tuesday that made the play seem routine and flat-out mundane. In the top of the ninth inning of the Rockies' 6-4 loss to the Diamondbacks in the first game of the teams' doubleheader at Coors Field...

Charlie Blackmon's 'abracadabra' slide completely jukes D-backs SS

Charlie Blackmon knew he was hosed at second base while trying to steal on Diamondbacks catcher Wellington Castillo. So, he pulled a little trick out of his top hat. In the first inning of the Rockies' 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday, Blackmon appeared as though he was sliding directly into the waiting tag of D-backs shortstop Chris Owings, but instead improvised and beat...

With the Troy Tulowitzki trade now a month old, the three pitchers the Rockies received in the trade continue to perform well in the minors.

Built to outlast

The Rockies, when you add them up as a whole, are terrible. But they do have some good players, like Jose Reyes, Carlos Gonzalez, and maybe even their prized rookie pitcher Jon Gray. That group managed to keep things tight with the Pirates for most of the way, and you wondered if they were an unlucky break or a rough inning away from losing a really bad game at home. But you didn’t really...

The Rockies come to town

The drill for this series is much the same as the last: the Pirates are playing bad teams at a point in the season where wins are at a premium. There is no reason for the Pirates to not win two or three games against the Rockies at PNC Park this weekend, and if they’re lucky, doing that will make up some ground on the Cardinals for them. Francisco Liriano starts for the Bucs tonight...
