Rockies return home after D-Backs onslaught sweep

Begin Series with Padres tomorrow

The Colorado Rockies became victims of the worst team in NL West as the Arizona Diamondbacks swept the Rockies in three straight games with an astounding combined score of 34-19.  It was the first series sweep of the season for the Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

“Their offense shows up against us,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “Once they got rolling, it was tough to stop them.”

We talk to them a lot about keep playing nine innings, keep playing hard, and they’ve never stopped. Even during the tough times, the losing streaks, they’ve never stopped playing hard.”

The Rockies will have a day to lick their wounds before welcoming back the San Diego Padres to Coors Field.  The last meeting between the two teams ended up splitting four games.

Tickets for the series, which begins tomorrow, are still on sale .  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still to be had so grab a friend and get out to help cheer on your Colorado Rockies in their last nine home games!

Rockies look to get second game off Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks struck hard and heavy against the Rockies last night in a 12-5 win over the Colorado Rockies last night.  The D-backs got 12 runs off 15 hits, snapping a four game losing streak.

“The guys did a great job, good at-bats,” D-backs manager Chip Hale said. “We got the ball up a little bit and we were able to get the ball up and we were able to do some damage early and then continue to do it during the game. That’s a good sign for me, because sometimes you score runs early and shut it down, but we just kept having good at-bats.”

The Rockies face the D-backs again tonight in the closer of the series before hooking up with them again back home in Colorado. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!
