By the time May had been finished, the National League West was the most competitive division in all of baseball with four teams neck and neck and the Rockies were right in the middle of it. However, it did appear that the team had been slacking a little bit this month. Their record wasn’t as good being 14-12.
The majority of the losses were, sadly, division games against the 1st place Dodgers along with NL Central hopefuls Milwaukee Brewers. Especially against the Dodgers, this may not be surprising. However, the month of June proved to be a solid month for the Colorado Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies headed into June with hope to finish out the month strong and boy did they. Their month was highlighted by a 7 game winning streak. They also added 10 more wins to that as they had a 17-10 record in the month.
This got them into 1st place in the NL West while the Giants, Dodgers, and Diamondbacks were fighting it out within the Wild Card spots. While all this was happening, the front offices of all the teams were getting ready for the trades of July by putting quite a few players on the trading block.
