The Colorado Rockies are off to a 13-12 start. It feels like they have left some wins out there, while at the same time it feels like it is an admirable start considering how demanding their early schedule is.
A significant portion of their success has been some powerful showings from the offense, in particular in the friendly confines of Coors Field. To date here are the team leaders in home runs:
Presented for your viewing pleasure, here are some highlights from this week in Colorado Rockies home runs.
3. Troy Tulowitzki stays hot, takes Josh Beckett deep
The freshest image we have of Tulowitzki was him striking out with the bases loaded in the team’s loss Saturday night. Even with that disappointment it feels like Tulo is on the verge of one of those ridiculous hot stretches where he hoists the team on his back. We will see, but this swing against Beckett was sure nice.
2. Corey Dickerson hits it a long way
Also facing Beckett, Dickerson put a beautiful swing on this one. He went with the pitch and showed some serious raw power by hitting it out of this particular part of Dodgers stadium. The two solo home runs seen here were the only damage the Rockies’ lineup could manage against Beckett.
1. Nolan Arenado crushes one off Madison Bumgarner
All we wanted was for Arenado’s bat to catch up to his ridiculously good defense. So far so good in 2014, as Arenado has a 16 game hitting streak going and has shown some flashes of power. It took a grown man swing to drive this Bumgarner pitch out of the yard.
