The Atlanta Braves have new incentive to take care of business in the National League East as quickly as possible. The Braves don’t want their playoff status to be determined by a makeup game against a Colorado Rockies team which has been tough to beat at Truist Park. The Rockies won the first two games of the series and are 10-2 at Truist Park since the stadium opened in 2017.

After the Rockies’ 8-7 victory that day, the Nats fell to 55-47 on the season but were in the middle of one of the most impressive comebacks in MLB history en route to capturing their first-ever World Series title. That day, Max Scherzer took the mound, and Trea Turner started at shortstop, batting leadoff. Nowadays, those guys are both facing the Rockies more often thanks to a Trade Deadline blockbuster that sent them both to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Sep. 14—Things seem to be going just peachy for the Rockies lately. Sure, they won’t be playing past Oct. 3. But they have at least, it seems, figured out how to win on the road, even if it took until September. Maybe it’ll even roll into next season, but only time will tell on that one. “This is where we want to be at our strongest point next year at this time,” Gray said. “If we are playing …

It’s the sound of September the Phillies can only hope they hear deep into October. Zack Wheeler steadied the slumping Phillies with eight strikeouts to lead Philadelphia to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. Odubel Herrera’s two-RBI bunt double and Jean Segura’s solo homer helped the Phillies snap a four-game losing streak that had them fading from the NL East playoff race.
