Charlie Blackmon’s walkoff
As the Rockies got back on track with Marquez’s win, the Rockies won five in a row. The fifth win was at home against the Philadelphia Phillies.
To win this one, though, the Rockies had to overcome deficits multiple times. In the 6th inning, the Rockies overcame a 2-0 deficit with a solo home run by Trevor Story and a RBI double by Garrett Hampson.
In the bottom half of the 12th, the Rockies had to face old friend Juan Nicasio. After Hampson grounded out to start the inning, Tony Wolters walked. After Wolters, Raimel Tapia recorded the second out of the inning.
Charlie Blackmon came up and with a 1-2 count and with only a 12 percent chance of winning the game heading into the at-bat, according to Baseball Reference, Blackmon turned the 12 percent chance into 100 percent with one swing.
He hit his first home run of the season: a 444 foot, 2-run home run into the Phillies bullpen in right-center field to send more than 35,000 Rockies fans home happy.
