Dickerson’s Heroics Lead Rockies to Walk-Off Win

Dickerson’s Heroics Lead Rockies to Walk-Off Win

Rob Carr/Getty Images(DENVER) — Corey Dickerson hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth, tying the game at 4-4, and drove in the winning run in the 13th as Colorado beat Miami 5-4 on Saturday night. It’s the sixth walk-off win of the season for the Rockies (51-77).
“Last night, bases loaded, same guy and I swung first pitch on a sinker and grounded out,” Dickerson said of the hit that came off Sam Dyson, who bested him on Friday. “I kind of wanted to see a pitch and I wanted to get a pitch up. He threw a ball down like last night, and I think he hung a changeup or a slider up and in.”
It was a back-and-forth affair that saw four lead changes. The Marlins (64-64) took a 1-0 third inning lead on a Giancarlo Stanton double before the Rockies scored three runs in the bottom half of the frame. Brandon Byrnes gave Colorado the lead with a two-run homer after the tying run came home on a double-play ball.
Miami later tied the game in the fifth before taking a lead in the top of the ninth thanks to Adeiny Hechavarria’s RBI single. Closer Steve Cishek blew his fourth save of the year when Dickerson launched a 455-foot blast to the third deck before sealing the deal in the 13th.

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DENVER) — On a day where Todd Helton had his number 17 retired, the first player to receive the honor in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies swept a doubleheader against Cincinnati in dramatic fashion. Colorado (49-75) took game one by a 10-9 final before winning the nightcap 10-5.
The Rockies Trailed 9-5 heading into the bottom of the ninth in the first contest but rallied to score five runs in the inning. Aroldis Chapman walked four consecutive batters to start the inning before J.J. Hoover replaced him. Wilin Rosario’s sacrifice fly made it a 9-7 game with one out and two on. Following a Charlie Blackmon fly out, Drew Stubbs took a 1-0 pitch and hammered it to deep center for a walk-off, three-run home run against his former team. Rex Brothers (4-5) got the win while Hoover (1-9) was saddled with the loss.
Colorado’s dramatics carried over into the second game where they again came from behind. The Reds (61-63) led 5-2 at the seventh inning stretch, but the Rockies scored three runs to knot things up. They took the lead in the eighth on Corey Dickerson’s two-run double and added to it with a two-base hit from Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer’s double was his fourth hit of the game and completed his second ever cycle.
The outfielder tripled in the first, homered in the fifth, and singled in the seventh before the eighth inning triple. Cuddyer became the seventh Rockies player ever to hit for the cycle, and the first since Carlos Gonzalez in 2010 against the Chicago Cubs. His first cycle came as a member of the Minnesota Twins against Milwaukee in 2009.

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(DENVER) — Kris Negron singled home Ramon Santiago in the top of the ninth inning to give Cincinnati a 3-2 lead over Colorado, and make Johnny Cueto the first 15-game winner in the Major Leagues. Cueto (15-6) pitched a full eighth innings and is now 7-0 since his last loss back on July 2.
It did not start off well for Cueto or the Reds (61-61) as Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first to give the Rockies (47-75) an early lead. Cincinnati countered with runs in the third and fourth, taking the lead on a Santiago RBI single in the top of the fourth. That would last until Corey Dickerson doubled in the sixth to plate Justin Morneau and tie the game at 2-2.
Cueto continued to keep his team in the ballgame using a devastating combination of his cutter and four-seam fastball. The righty allowed just six hits in the outing with six strikeouts, helping the Reds snap a three-game losing streak. 
After Negron gave Cincinnati the lead in the top of the ninth, Aroldis Chapman picked up his 26th save in 28 tries.

Rockies Starting Pitcher Brett Anderson Out for the Rest of the Season

Rockies Starting Pitcher Brett Anderson Out for the Rest of the Season

Robert Binder/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The injuries continue to pile up for the Colorado Rockies. The latest injury to hit the team is starting pitcher Brett Anderson, who will miss the remainder of the 2014 season to repair a disk in his lower back.
He will undergo surgery to fix the issue, and will sit out to rest of the year.
This a tough break for Anderson, who was enjoying success in his first season with the Rockies. He had spent the first five seasons of his career with the Oakland Athletics.
Despite his talent, Anderson has had trouble staying on the field due to health. The year 2009, his rookie season, was the only season the 26-year-old Anderson was able to make at least 30 starts. Aside from his rookie year, Anderson has never been able to make more than 19 starts in a season.
In eight starts this season, Anderson went 1-3 with a 2.91 era and a 1.32 WHIP.
Despite the injury, Anderson is expected to be ready for spring training.

Troy Tulowitzki Is Tired of Losing

Troy Tulowitzki Is Tired of Losing

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has begun to take swings as he makes his return to the lineup.
Tulowitzki was hurt after running out for a ground ball last month in Pittsburgh and has seen his team fall to last in the National League. The Rockies have dropped their last nine out of ten games.
“I think that’s why I came out numerous times and said I want to win,” Tulowitzki told the Denver Post on Wednesday. “It doesn’t mean I want out of here. It means I’m sick and tired of losing.”
Before the injury, Tulowitzki was putting up fantastic numbers leading baseball in batting average (.340) and on-base percentage (.432) while scoring 71 runs, hitting 21 homers and knocking in 52 runs.
“Something needs to change. Hopefully that comes fairly quickly,” Tulowitzki continued. “You can’t force it. But at the same time, we’re all frustrated with this year — especially me.”
“I don’t see any quit,” Tulowitzki added. “They come out here and play hard every single day. We’ve had some deficits we’ve overcome. And I think we would have (team) meetings if we didn’t sense that. We’re playing hard. And (manager) Walt (Weiss) has said the same thing.”

Rockies Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki Wants to Play for a Contender

Rockies Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki Wants to Play for a Contender

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is in the midst of an MVP caliber season. In his prime, Tulowitzki has expressed his desire to play for a contending team, whether that’s with the Rockies or not.
Entering Sunday, Tulowitzki leads the National League in batting average at .350 and is second in home runs at 18.
Now in his ninth season, Tulowitzki doesn’t want to become like his former teammate, Todd Helton.
“In Todd Helton, there’s someone who’s easy to look at his career here and how it played out. I have the utmost respect for Todd, but at the same time, I don’t want to be the next in line as somebody who was here for a long time and didn’t have a chance to win every single year,” said Tulowitzki. “He played in a couple postseason games and went to one World Series. But that’s not me. I want to be somewhere where there’s a chance to be in the playoffs every single year.”
Tulowitzki has spent his entire career with the Rockies.

Kershaw’s Scoreless Streak up to 36 innings

Kershaw’s Scoreless Streak up to 36 innings

Dustin Bradford/Getty Images(DENVER, Colo.) — Clayton Kershaw continued his torrid performance on the mound by throwing eight shutout innings on Friday night in Colorado. The southpaw has now extended his career-high scoreless innings streak to 36 in a row.
“You don’t ever want to give up a run,” Kershaw casually said. “I guess that’s the goal.”
The Dodger ace gave up just two hits in a 9-0 rout of the Rockies. He was supplied with more than enough offense as Los Angeles score three runs in the first inning. Yasiel Puig opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first. 
Kershaw last allowed in the third inning at Arizona on June 13. The Major League record, 59 consecutive scoreless inning,  is held by former Dodger Orel Hershiser. Of the 36 scoreless innings tossed by Kershaw, he has thrown 17 of those frames against the Rockies.

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Victor Decolongon/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Clayton Kershaw can add another feather to his cap: the 26-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander no-hit the Colorado Rockies Wednesday night, as the Dodgers blanked the Rockies 8-0.
Kershaw, who already is a two-time Cy Young Award winner, struck out a career-high 15 while walking none. He becomes the first pitcher ever to strikeout that many batters without allowing a walk.
The Dodgers’ ace almost had the perfect game. In the seventh inning shortstop Hanley Ramirez fielded a Corey Dickerson grounder and threw wide to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, allowing Dickerson to get on base. The play was ruled a throwing error and was the only blemish in Kershaw’s 107 pitch masterpiece.
While Dickerson was the only man to get on base, he also ended the game when he struck out swinging sending the crowd at Dodger Stadium wild.
“To get to do it in front of this crowd with how excited they were, and how into it they were is pretty special,” Kershaw said.
The no-hitter is the second of the season for the Dodgers. Josh Beckett threw one in Philadelphia on May 25. It’s the first time since 1956 two Dodgers pitchers threw a no-hitter in the same season.
“I am so amazed,” Kershaw said. “Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank.”
Kershaw’s no-hitter is the 22nd in Dodgers history.

Rockies’ Outfielder Michael Cuddyer Out 6-8 Weeks with Shoulder Injury

Rockies’ Outfielder Michael Cuddyer Out 6-8 Weeks with Shoulder Injury

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Another week, another injury for the Colorado Rockies. This time, outfielder Michael Cuddyer lands on the shelf again as he’ll miss the next 6-8 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his left shoulder socket.
Cuddyer suffered the injury last Thursday when diving for a ball at third base.
The team was trying the 35-year-old Cuddyer at third base after Nolan Arenado’s injury.
This latest injury will likely keep Cuddyer out of action until August. He’s already been on the disabled list this season with a strained left hamstring.
Despite his talent, Cuddyer has struggled to stay healthy during his time with the Rockies. He missed 61 games in 2012, 32 games in 2013, and he’s played in just 31 games this season for Colorado.
Last season, Cuddyer won the National League Batting Title after he batted .331 with 20 home runs and 84 RBIs. This season, Cuddyer is batting .317.
Among the other Rockies on the disabled list are Arenado, Carlos Gonzalez and Jordan Lyles.

Rockies Place OF Carlos Gonzalez on 15-Day Disabled List

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(DENVER) — The Colorado Rockies placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday due to inflammation in his left index finger.
In 52 games this season, the 28-year-old Gonzalez is hitting .255 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs. He owns a career .296 batting average with 133 homers and 450 RBIs in 743 Major League games.
To take Gonzalez’s spot on the active roster, the Rockies recalled infielder Ryan Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
The 25-year-old Wheeler is batting .253 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 50 games this year with the Sky Sox.

Arenado Breaks Finger, Will Miss “Some Time”

Arenado Breaks Finger, Will Miss “Some Time”

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(ATLANTA, Ga.) — The Colorado Rockies could be without third baseman Nolan Arenado for a significant amount of time. That is after the second year player fractured his left middle finger on a head-first slide into second base Friday night.
“He’ll miss some time,” said Rockies manager Walt Weiss. “It’s tough news for our club. He’s off to a great start and a hell of a player.”
Arenado was hitting .305 with six home runs and 28 runs batted in to begin the season. The injury came in the top of the second when he hit a double to left. Arenado dove head first, ahead of the tag from Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons. 
Following a review of the play, which was upheld, Arenado grabbed at his left hand but stayed in the game and later scored. He was replaced in the field by Charlie Culberson in the bottom of the second.
Currently, Arenado is listed as day-to-day but could miss 6-8 weeks if he opts to have surgery. The Rockies would end up losing, 3-2, to Atlanta.

Rockies Turn Triple Play, Walk-Off Against San Diego

Rockies Turn Triple Play, Walk-Off Against San Diego

Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(DENVER, Colo.) — On Sunday afternoon the Colorado Rockies did something that has only been done four times in the last 26 years: turn a triple play and hit a walk-off home run in the same game. Justin Morneau became just the second player during that span to be a part of both as the Rockies defeated San Diego 8-6 in 10 innings.
In the third inning, with runners on first and second, Carlos Quentin grounded to third baseman Nolan Arenado who stepped on the bag for the first out. He then fired to second baseman D.J. LeMahieu for a second out who fired on to Morneau at first. Quentin was called safe by first base umpire Manny Gonzalez, but second base umpire Seth Buckminster ruled that Seth Smith interfered with LeMahieu’s throw and ruled Quentin out on baserunner interference.
“That was different than anything I’ve ever seen,” Morneau said of the play.
Smith had homered in the first to give the Padres a 1-0 lead. However, his interference ignited Colorado who ended up scoring four runs in the home half of the third. The Rockies would eventually hold a 6-4 lead heading into the ninth, but closer LaTroy Hawkins gave up a game-tying, two-run homer to Everth Cabrera.
That set the stage for Morneau, who came up with two outs and one on in the bottom of the tenth. Morneau would take Dale Thayer deep to center for the game-winner, joining Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder (2009) as the only other player to be involved in a triple play and hit a walk-off home run in the same game since 1988.
It was the first triple play turned by the Rockies since 2007 when shortstop Troy Tulowitzki converted an unassisted triple play against the Atlanta. The last time San Diego hit into a triple play was in 2012 at Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
