Rockies battling for first

Colorado Rockies are making moves and it’s not even Rocktober yet! Last week the Colorado Rockies were third in the National League (NL) West three games out of first place and 1.5 games out of second. This week the Rockies are a half game out from the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks and two games ahead of the L.A. Dodgers.

After splitting a two-game series with the Houston Astros last week the Rockies had to travel to Atlanta to face the National League’s top team in the east, the Atlanta Braves in a four-game series. Fans would have been ecstatic if the Rockies would have just split the series in Atlanta, but by Sunday night it was clear that they were on a mission to move outta third and compete for the top spot in the NL West. The Rockies beat the Braves four games to none sweeping the East’s top team.

This week the Colorado Rockies host the San Diego Padres for a three-game series that ends this Thursday, just before their three-game series with the NL Central number three in the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals, who have been battling it out with the Brewers and the Cubbies, beat the Rockies three games to one in a series that begin at the end of July and wrapped up on August 2.

Fans are excited about how well the Rockies have played over the past few weeks to move up in the battle for their first Division title and their chance to show fans why Rocktober is Colorado’s favorite month.

In other sports the Denver Broncos lost their second pre-season game and although fans would have loved a different outcome to the first two games of the season, we all got the opportunity to see how good some of these new guys are. While punt returner and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie showed fans how quick and elusive he can be he also showed that he still has trouble holding onto the ball. Chad Kelly has recently become a fan favorite at the back-up quarterback position after he beat out Denver’s 2016 number one draft pick in Paxton Lynch after his performance in game one.

The Colorado Outlaws became the 2018 MLL Champions making them the third professional sports team in Colorado to win three championships. The Denver Outlaws beat the Dallas Rattlers 16-12 on Saturday night securing their third championship in five seasons.
