The Colorado Rockies are officially on a break as the All-Star Game and Home-Run Derby kick off the week. For the first time this year the Rockies are below .500 heading into their second week of July for the month (Colorado Rockies overall are above .500). Since the end of June and start of the July the Rockies have slid from first in the National West Division to third behind the Arizona Diamondbacks and the L.A. Dodgers, who have increased their lead in the division to 9 and half games over the Rockies. 

Despite Colorado’s recent woes, they still remain in contentions for a shot at the post-season, while fans are hoping for a second half-season boost. The Rockies wrapped up two series with the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago White Sox last week and over the weekend. Colorado split their series with the Reds, and won two of three with their series over the White Sox. Colorado’s home grown Kyle Freeland pitched his best game in the Rockies win over the White Sox in game three Sunday afternoon-- one hit shy of a no hitter. Freeland’s pitching in Sunday’s game put the league on notice of Colorado’s rookie pitching corps which has shined most of the season and has now sent the Rockies into the All-Star break on a high note. 

In other sports, the battle for quarterback is still hot in Dove Valley, but Denver receivers are hoping that the decision will be made by the Broncos second preseason game. Both Paxton Lynch and last year’s starter Trevor Siemian have been jockeying for position in a competition many expected to be hot. Although there have been no signs of a definitive leader in the competition, Lynch has clearly made some significant strides from last season placing pressure on last year’s starter. 

The Colorado Rapids lost 1-3 to the Seattle Sounders on the July 4th, and will not play again until July 22. The extended time off will give the Rapids a chance to get healthy before their game against the Toronto FC on July 22nd.
