Here are four other high/low marks for this year’s version of the Extreme Rockies:
1. Colorado still sports fewest wins, home runs on the road in the Majors
The team’s 5-27 road mark, in which the Rox have been outscored 178-83, is four wins fewer than Arizona’s total of nine victories in 40 road games.
The D-backs have the second-fewest road wins. They dropped their 17th consecutive game on Sunday in a loss to the Dodgers. Meanwhile, the Rockies’ 16 homers away from home rank last among Major League teams.
2. Rox top Majors in batting average, hits and runs scored at home (entering action Sunday)
Beginning play Sunday, Colorado boasted top marks for batting average (.282), hits (379), and runs scored (233) at home this season. With 12 hits and six runs tallied Sunday, the team could well remain No. 1 in each of those categories.
3. Colorado has amassed seven walk-off wins
The club’s 6-5 walk-off victory Friday against the Brewers was, at the time, its second such win in three games and a Major League-leading seventh walk-off win of the season.
4. The Rockies have the for most home wins in National League this season
Despite the ninth-inning home losses the last two days to Milwaukee, Colorado’s 25 wins at Coors Field matches that of Chicago and San Diego as the most in the National League for 2021.
After a day off from action Monday, Colorado returns to the diamond on Tuesday for the first of a two-game set at Seattle. Following the trip out west, the road journey continues with a three-game series at Milwaukee. Four of the five games, including all three with the Brewers, will be afternoon starts.
Kyle Freeland (0-2, 9.58) is scheduled to start for Colorado on Tuesday with the first pitch set for 8:10 p.m. (Mountain time).
