Colorado Rockies: reflecting on the 2017 season month by month
In the month of June, the Rockies were extremely streaky. Starting on June 3, they had a seven game winning streak followed by a three game losing streak. They immediately followed that streak with a six game winning streak that they followed with an eight game losing streak that ended on June 30.
Total for the month, the Rockies were 15-12. The offense averaged 5.2 runs per game with an offensive slash line of .276/.342/.413.
The pitching faltered in the month as their ERA was 5.05 in June. The bullpen had an ERA of 5.18 in June, which was up from 3.81 in May. The starting pitcher’s ERA increased from 3.96 in May to 4.97 in June.
In the eight game losing streak, both sides completely fell apart. The offense, in those games, hit .206/.270/.270 and averaged 2.9 runs per game. The pitching was even worse as they had an ERA of 8.16 in that span (that’s not a typo).
In the month, however, Nolan Arenado was the main offensive force for the Rockies. He only had three home runs in the month but in 27 games played, he had 27 RBI with a .324/.361/.568 slash line in the month.
