Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for Saturday, September 26, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies were pretty impressive in a Friday night victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers, thanks to three home runs (Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez, Corey Dickerson), some other timely extra base hits (Dickerson, Rafael Ynoa), and a good start by David Hale.

It’s doubly sweet that the Dodgers are nearing their NL West clinching-game (magic number: 4) but the Rockies delayed their celebration for at least another day. They can still do it in Denver (especially if the Giants keep losing, too), but at least for now… the Colorado Rockies are (kind of) playing the spoiler.
