Jordon Lyles to start today
The Colorado Rockies’ season opener is today and kicks off against the San Diego Padres at 3:10. Starting the game will be Jordan Lyles, who started only 10 times last season due to a toe injury.
Finally Rockies fans will be able to witness the newest MLB star, Trevor Story, who has blasted his way into the history books becoming the only rookie in the MLB Modern Era to homer in his first three games. His team is not too far behind with a total of 10 homers in the last three games. If Story gets even one home run in this series, he will be the fastest player to ever get there that fast. Hopefully the home crowd will witness history!
“Opening day is special it always is,” Colorado Rockies Manager Walt Weiss told 9 News on Thursday. “We’ve been in the desert a long time — a couple of months — so touching down in Denver was quite sweet.”
