How the Rockies Are Winning Off the Field, Too


The Colorado Rockies haven’t let up their winning streak, claiming their sixth-straight game with a gritty 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday. Things looked bad early on, with the Rox going down 2-0 and striking out a lot, The Denver Post points out. A few weeks ago, those kind of early struggles would probably have led to a loss, but the team bounced back behind solid pitching and timely offense.

In other good news, the Rockies are off to a nice start in the draft, where they continue to load up the reliable farm system, writes Purple Row. With the 11th pick in the draft, the team scored Tyler Matzek, a 6-foot-3, 18-year-old California high school pitcher. They also selected Sacramento State junior center fielder Tim Wheeler and Lipscomb University pitcher Rex Brothers.
