The Colorado Rockies faced the New York Mets in the first of a three-game series in Denver last night. After coming off a four game losing streak, Colorado pulled off a much needed win and beat the Mets with the final score of 2-1.
Catcher Chris Iannetta went 2-for-3 and led the team with two runs, including a game-winning home run in the seventh inning, his fifth homer so far this season. Colorado’s pitcher Jhoulys Chacin threw for six-innings and a total of 107 pitches where he allowed only two hits, but walked six batters.
Last month, Colorado swept the Mets in a four-game series. Last night’s game marked the fifth win this season for them against the New York Mets. Tonight’s game will be the second of a four-game series at Coors Field in Denver and is set to begin at 8:40pm. Team Purple have a current record of 19-14.

The Colorado Rockies lost Sunday versus the Giants with a score of 3-0. Colorado has now lost four straight games, which is the worst they have performed all season. In fact, the Colorado Rockies recently returned home to Denver with only a 1-5 record on the road.
Rockies’ pitcher Jorge De La Rosa has started for the last four games during the series. He had seven strikeouts, but walked five batters, the most he has walked so far this season.
De La Rosa commented on the recent losses and said, “I have some things to work on.”
But the Colorado Rockies remain optimistic. Jason Giambi stated, “We have too many good players [on this team] not to get better.”
The Colorado Rockies will take on the New York Mets tonight in the first of a three-game series. The Colorado Rockies now have a record of 18-14, and the team is 7-6 at home.

Talk is cheap, but apparently power-hitting shortstops in Major League Baseball are not. Neither are the Colorado Rockies. With the year coming to an end, the Rockies franchise decided that Troy Tulowitzki should be a part of the organization until 2020. His new deal extends his payout to $157.75 Million over the next decade, making “Tulo” one of the game’s highest paid infielders.
“I’m really lucky,” Troy Tulowitzki says. “I can’t wait to be here my entire career.” The Colorado Rockies can’t wait either… Tulo is just 26 years old and is coming off his best season yet, a stat line that includes a .315 Batting Average, 27 Home Runs, 95 RBIs, and 11 Stolen Bases through only 122 games. The positive trends are there too, as Tulowitzki raised his batting average 34 points from ’08 to ’09 and another 18 points from ’09 to ’10.
The bigger concern for the Colorado Rockies at this point should be keeping Troy Tulowitzki healthy for a full season after missing significant time two of the last three years. He already has two +150 game seasons under his belt so there’s little reason to think that he can’t stay healthy for 2011. If so, expect a big season from Tulo this year…

Ubaldo Jimenez continues to dazzle hitters and widen the gap between him and other pitchers with his MLB leading 11th win, improving to 11-1 on the season. The Colorado Rockies top the Diamondbacks with the score of 3-2 to cap the series and improve their record to 29-27.
Jimenez went 7 innings giving up 2 earned runs while striking out 8. Carlos Gonzalez belted a 2-RBI double in the 5th while Troy Tulowitzki added his 8th Home Run of the season, a solo shot, in the 6th.
