After Sunday’s win, Colorado is hitting, as a team, .238 on the season. That ranks them 22nd out of the 30 Major League teams. However, the offense has started to click more in recent weeks. Since April 14, the Rockies are 13-7 overall and are hitting .264 as a team. During that span, Colorado ranks first in the National League in runs and runs per game (6.2) while also ranking among the top four NL teams in batting average.
Is the offense finally turning around? Here’s what Bud Black had to say on Sunday.
"“I thought we showed signs in Atlanta. We had a couple of rough ones in Milwaukee but then we bounced back after two losses there and put up big numbers in Milwaukee,” Black said. “Friday night’s game could have gone either way. We were one swing away from winning that one. I think there are signs, but we’re not there yet. I really don’t think we are. We still have to pitch a little better overall but offensively I’m seeing some things that are very encouraging.”"

Yes, there are some encouraging signs for the offense. If Tapia and Tony Wolters can continue to hit from the bottom of the order as well, it means the Rockies could finally have the offense everyone hoped for last season and envisioned this season when Daniel Murphy was signed.
