For the Colorado Rockies, this road trip has been odd from a scheduling standpoint. It’s also had a few other anomalies mixed in there as well, both good and bad for the team.

The Colorado Rockies got an off day in Boston before splitting a two-game series against the Red Sox. They then had an off day in Philadelphia before suffering a sweep at the hands of the Phillies. On Monday, the Rockies will have a day off in Pittsburgh before starting a three-game series against the Pirates.

Colorado has a 1-4 record on this road trip, winning the first game in Boston in extra innings before dropping their next four to fall to 20-25 on the season. That elusive .500 mark, that the Rockies haven’t seen since the fourth game of the campaign when leaving Miami after a four-game series with the Marlins, is becoming further and further away.

There have been a few things stand out on this road trip so far. Here are three that are making a big impact in our eyes.
