The Rox split a 4 game set with the Pirates in Pittsburgh and travel to New York to take on the Mets for three games. After the Rox road woes, a split against the lowly Pirates looks pretty good. If the Rox can take 2 from the Mets, this will be a great road trip. Even if they only win 1, the road trip will still be acceptable. This team needs to stay around .500 on the road and continue to win at home in order to stay relevant in the playoff race. After the position players met with Jim Tracy, the Rockies took 2 of the last 3 games in the series, and the loss came in extra innings after the Rox took a lead in the top of the 10th. The starting pitching and offense were generally good in this series, and Rockies fans have to love seeing the Rox put up some runs away from Coors. Let’s hope the team can generate some momentum and beat the Mets in a tough road series.
