The Colorado Rockies stumbled out of the gate on their six-game road trip through Miami and Minnesota, suffering a three-game sweep at the hands of the Marlins in south Florida.
With the losses, the Colorado Rockies are now 30-40 on the season, the furthest away from .500 the team has been in 2022, with a three-game set against the Twins on tap this weekend. Help could be on the way, however, as Kris Bryant is expected to join the club in Minnesota after his second stint on the injured list this season.
Let’s take a look at three numbers to know from the Miami Marlins sweep of the Colorado Rockies
.462 — That was the batting average posted in the three games in Miami by Brendan Rodgers, going 6-for-13. Four of those hits went for extra bases, with Rodgers collecting two triples and two doubles. On Thursday, Rodgers posted four hits, marking his first four-hit game of his career.
After finishing April with a slash line of .078/.172/.098, Rodgers is now slashing .255/.307/.413 for the season, showing just how far he has come in the last six weeks at the plate.
4 — That’s how many errors the Rockies committed in a game on Tuesday night in a 9-8 loss to the Marlins. It marked the first time this season Colorado had made that many miscues in one game, though the team has committed three errors in two other games this season.
Since May 8, the Rockies have committed a MLB-leading 40 errors. This season, the Rockies have 58 errors, the most in the Majors.
13 — There is always talk about how the Rockies have trouble hitting on the road, but Charlie Blackmon has been finding his stride away from Coors Field in recent games. Over his last 15 road games dating back to May 23, Chuck Nazty has hit safely in 13 of them.
During that stretch, he has slashed .311/.348/.492 with six of his 19 hits going for extra bases (three doubles, one triple, and two homers) while logging 11 RBI. Additionally, Blackmon has seen his road average rise from .204 to .261 during this stretch away from Denver.
