Colorado Rockies vs. Seattle Mariners

Coors Field, Denver, Colo.

The Rockies came into their rainy Sunday afternoon game against Seattle looking to finish off what was a relatively disappointing first half with a bang.

After starting 38-42, the Rockies came in at 50-45 and winners of 12 of 15 including four in a row. Tyler Anderson was on the mound for Colorado facing off against Seattle’s Mike Leake, and both pitched well. Anderson went six innings, giving up two runs on five hits, but with both runs and four hits coming in the first inning. Leake also went six innings giving up two runs, one earned, on six hits.

The Mariners led after one until a third inning single by Nolan Arenado scored two, one of the runs coming off of a throwing error by Mitch Haniger. A seventh inning RBI single by Dee Gordon gave Seattle a 3-2 lead, but it was short-lived. Again, the Rockies tied it in the bottom of the seventh thanks to a Chris Iannetta sacrifice fly and it was 3-3 going into the eighth. Clean ninth innings from Álex Colomé for Seattle and a combination of Bryan Shaw and Scott Oberg for the eighth and ninth for Colorado sent the game to the bottom of the ninth inning, still tied 3-3 and setting the stage for Sir Trevor Story.

Right-hander Nick Vincent entered the game for the Mariners in the ninth and worked ahead of Story until he hung a 2-2 slider over the heart of the plate that Story crushed over the center field bleachers for his first career walk-off home run, sending the Rockies into the All-Star break winners of five in a row and one of the hottest teams in baseball.
