The Colorado Rockies had a stellar performance over their series with the San Francisco this Father’s Day Weekend and really have had a stellar performance this season so far. I went to the Saturday game where the Rockies won against the Giants 5-1 but that wasn’t even the most exciting game. The hype is all around Sunday when the Rockies secured the victory in the bottom of the 9th. Rockies were down 4-5. Two men were on base and Nolan Arenado hits a walk off homer to bring the game to 7-5.
This home run is quite legendary. Not only did it complete a cycle, it was at the bottom of the 9th and was against Mark Melancon, the Giant’s closer. Some are saying that Arenado’s homerun is the defining moment of the Rockies 2017 season. It’s that type of special moment that burns in one’s brain and makes it hard to ignore that the Rockies are really something this season.
We at isplack adore the Rockies and couldn’t be happier that they are having a breakout season. Keep on doing your thing Rockies.
