Ryan McMahon hit a clutch three-run home run in the bottom of the 8th off of Emilio Pagan to give the Rockies the lead and the win in an up and down game against the San Diego Padres. The bullpen stepped up after a lackluster performance by Jeff Hoffman to hold the Padres scoreless over the last four innings and secure the victory in the simulated home opener. Clutch hitting Rockies batters showed resilience early in the game scoring their first two runs with two-out hitting.

Achtermann graduated from Cherokee Trail High School in 2014. He subsequently attended Garden City Community College, a two-year junior college, and would later transfer to another two-year school, Western Nebraska Community College.

In light of the holiday that today should be, in this post I am focusing on great ways to celebrate the Rockies and highlighting other stories that might make you feel better. The Rockies are hosting a Stay at Home Opener to try to entertain and bring happiness to so many of us who are under stay-at-home orders.

Long journey for sure but I wouldn’t change one single thing about it,” he said. Bouncing around like that can plant the seed of doubt, something Achtermann eventually learned to handle. There were games my senior year when I pitched and felt like I could go first overall.

A full season cancelation could cause a lot of issues for MiLB teams. Without the revenue coming in from the 2020 season, they could close up, for good. Teams run a lot like a small business, but adding the caveat that they are also only a seasonal operation.

Sim Germán Márquez will look to help the Rockies cap a three-game sweep of the Dodgers and move to 2-0 on the season as a starter when the NL West rivals take the field today. Márquez helped the Rockies post their first win of the season, a 3-2 victory over the Padres in Game 2, after going 6 2/3 innings with only giving up one run on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts. It won’t be an easy win for the Rockies as Sim Clayton Kershaw will be on the mound for the Dodgers.

Training facilities and fields are shut down—and the collective baseball community has been forced to train unlike ever before. The expansion of stay-at-home orders across the nation means less accessibility for players to get their work in. Rockies draftee Kyle Datres faces the issue, and like others, he just knows that a “mini-camp of some kind” will presumably set forth once restrictions are lifted.
