The Colorado Rockies are still running hot through the month of June and show no signs of slowing down. However, shortstop Trevor Story hasn’t been the big hitter we’ve grown accustomed to watching. Story’s season has been a quiet one thus far, although he seems to be slowly increasing his batting average since his return from the Disabled List (DL).
Sunday afternoon, Story chalked up a two-run single and went 2 for 4 in the Rockies win over the Padre’s at Petco Park in San Diego. Though others have been having great success this season, it surely wouldn’t hurt to get Story back to his .300+ average heading into the second half of the season.
The Colorado Rockies will be in Pittsburgh this week to face the Pirates in a three-game series while the city of Pittsburgh will likely be coming off of a hangover this week after the Penguins shut out of the Nashville Predators winning a consecutive NHL Stanley Cup title. The Colorado Rockies return home Thursday to host the San Francisco Giants in a four-game series that wraps up Sunday afternoon at Coors Field.
In other sports the Denver Broncos are about to wrap up organized team practice activities (OTA’s) before starting training camp next month. The Broncos have had productive OTA’s with quarterback Paxton Lynch showing signs of significant improvement from last season. Denver’s rookies have also shown some signs of greatness with rookie wide out Carlos Henderson hauling in a deep pass from Trevor Siemian last Thursday afternoon at Dove Valley.
The Golden State Warriors are the new NBA Champions after winning game 6 of the NBA finals Monday night in Oakland. The Warriors were up three games to none when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers won game 5 to keep their hopes alive. Game 5 appears to have just been a delay on the inevitable as Golden State beat the Cavs in dominating fashion for game 6. This is Kevin Durant’s first Championship win and despite having words with LeBron James in game 5 the two met at half court and hugged it out before James B-lined for the tunnel heading back to the Cavs locker room. Kevin Durant was phenomenal against the Cavs garnering a 35.2 point average against Cleveland.
