Rockies Are Failing, But Failing Less

In terms of not just their record, but also their form, the Rockies having an excellent may.

Rockies MLB

May has been downright delightful for the Rockies, whereas April was just awful.

On Thursday afternoon at Coors Field, Colorado overcame a 4-0 deficit to defeat Milwaukee 9-6 to complete the three-game sweep and earn its fourth victory in a row.

They also scored an excellent series win over the Padres, which was the Rockies’ first series victory over San Diego since June 17-19 of the previous season. In terms of not just their record, but also their form, the Rockies having an excellent may.

Rockies Take Down Milwaukee

Harold Castro, a utility player, was Colorado’s unlikely hero in its biggest comeback victory of the season. He got a two-run single through the left side of the infield off Peter Strzelecki in the eighth to put the Rockies ahead, 6-4. The convention started with a solitary by C.J. Cron and a twofold by Moustakas.

Colorado took control of the game with a two-run single by Charlie Blackmon off Tyson Miller.

The game got somewhat uncertain in the 10th when Milwaukee scored two times off of Puncture Johnson.

Colorado, which finished the month with a record of 9-20, appeared to be back in April early. Brewers starter Swim Miley dominated the Rockies for six scoreless innings, surrendering only three hits. Colorado’s deficit appeared to be as great as the Grand Canyon at that point.

However, with a four-run seventh inning that tied the game at 4-4, the Rockies finally defeated the lefty.

Moustakas, who got the beginning at third base, opened with a solitary and progressed to second on Alan Trejo’s ideal hit single. Ezequiel Tovar, a rookie shortstop who has shown promise in recent games, hit a two-run double to left field, driving Miley out of the game.

Miley was relieved by Joel Payamps, who got into trouble right away. Tovar advanced to third when he allowed Brenton Doyle to reach on an infield single. At the point when Payamps required a recoil, Tovar scored, and Doyle, who took a respectable halfway point, progressed to third. Doyle scored by pinch hitter Elias Diaz’s sacrifice fly to the right, tying the game.

Tovar, who started the season poorly at the plate, is now 11 for 35 (.314) and has five extra-base hits in his last 10 games, extending his hitting streak to seven games, which is a career-high. He is beginning to demonstrate why he was the youngest position player in franchise history to make his debut at the age of 21.

The Rockies’ five-inning outing by right-hander Connor Seabold kept his team alive.

Seabold faced a difficult situation. He started this season for the first time because of injuries to the Rockies’ rotation. The Brewers sent off three performance grand slams off him however he never let the game go wild. He allowed seven hits, did not walk anyone, and struck out one.

Christian Yelich began the game with a 424-foot shot to focus off Seabold, the 6th leadoff homer of Yelich’s vocation. Rowdy Tellez hit a solo shot to right field two batters later for a 2-0 lead. In the fifth, Milwaukee took a 3-0 lead thanks to a solo home run by Tyrone Taylor, who had two spectacular throws to the plate in the first two games of the series.

Brian Anderson reached on a two-out triple to the right field corner in the sixth inning off right-hander Nick Mears, scoring on a right-handed single by Victor Caratini.

Then, at that point, came the Rockies’ greatest assembly at the time.

They will try to keep going when they play six games on the road, starting Friday with a three-game series against the Mets. Then comes a three-game set against the unexpected Pirates in Pittsburgh.
