Here are four of the regular-season games to remember from the 2018 season.

April 11 — Colorado vs. San Diego at Coors Field

Let’s just call this the Nolan Arenado vs. the world game. Luis Perdomo plunks Arenado in the bottom of the third and mayhem ensues as Arenado charges the mound.

While the fight is obviously the star of the game, DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 and Wade Davis nailed down his fifth save of the season in a 6-4 Colorado win.

July 25 — Colorado vs. Houston at Coors Field

No trash cans here. Charlie Blackmon hits his 20th homer of the season in the bottom of the ninth off Collin McHugh to give the Rockies a 3-2 walk-off win.

August 10 — Colorado vs. Los Angeles Dodgers at Coors Field

The legend of Ryan McMahon grew this night, and grew even larger the next night with another clutch, late-inning bomb against the Dodgers.

Let’s not forget that McMahon had just entered this game as an injury replacement for Arenado. This game had all of the emotions as Colorado won, 5-4.

Another bonus? Watching Adam Ottavino earn the save with some nasty sliders.

September 5 — Colorado vs. San Francisco at Coors Field

Trevor Story. Three long home runs. A 5-3 win over the Giants. What’s not to love?
