The 30th anniversary of the Colorado Rockies has been one to forget. Unlike most teams who are chasing down a playoff spot and seeking their magic number to punch their ticket in to the post season, the Rockies are looking to avoid losing 100 games for the first time in franchise history.
The 2023 season has not been kind to Colorado. The Rockies have failed to have double-digit wins in a month twice (April and August) and have also consistently ranked in the bottom five of MLB power rankings all year long. The Rockies' pitching has also consistently ranked at 29th in all of baseball while the hitting has been okay currently ranking at 22nd.
What is the Rockies not so magical number? (Updated 9/26)
For the first time in franchise history, the Rockies have lost 100 games in a single season after a crushing 11-2 loss to the Dodgers.
In tonight's game, the Dodgers jumped ahead early on with five runs scored in the top of the second inning. LA would go on to score in the sixth, seventh and ninth inning tonight to give the games final score.
The Rockies scored their first run tonight from an Elehuris Montero home run in the sixth inning. They would later score again in the seventh inning from Nolan Jones's 56th RBI this season.
The Rockies now have a record of 57-100 on the season and have just five more games left this season as they will finish the year off by hosting the Minnesota Twins in a three-game series.
