There are plenty of great moments at the plate in the history of the Colorado Rockies, but which ones are the best of the best? Let’s take a look at the numbers.
Entering the 2022 season, there are four games in Rockies history where a player has accumulated 14 total bases in a single game. For the sake of this article, that is the offensive metric we will be looking at when tabulating the best offensive games in franchise history.
Here are the 4 best offensive performances in Colorado Rockies history
Let’s start with the most recent one, and that comes from Ryan McMahon. During a 10-8 loss in 13 innings to the Arizona Diamondbacks at Coors Field on April 6, 2021, McMahon went 4-for-6 at the plate, including three home runs (leaving the yard in the second, fourth, and seventh innings) and adding an RBI double in the 13th.
McMahon would plate four of the eight runs scored by the Rockies that night. His three home runs would be part of an eight-homer performance in the month of April, the most McMahon had in a single month all season.
What makes this performance unique: It is the only one of the four greatest games we will examine to come in a Rockies loss.
