The Colorado Rockies just wrapped up a three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers on the road winning only game three. In the series against the Cardinals last week the Rockies also only walked away with a single win from game-one of their series. Thus far, the start of August has not been a good one for the Rox losing 4 of 5 since the 1st.
The Rockies return this week to host the Pirates. Monday night the Rockies shutout the Pirates in game one of a three-game series. Next week the division-leading L.A. Dodgers come to the Mile High City for four-game series, giving the Rockies an opportunity to cut the Dodgers lead and quite possibly catch them.
