Rockies: On the Road Again, Thankfully

The Rockies get a break. They get to go on the road for five games — two in Seattle and three this weekend in San Diego. Who would have ever thought the Rockies would forward to life on the road, but this year that’s been the case.

Coors Field

The Rockies were swept in a two-game series at Coors Field on Monday and Tuesday by the Mariners. It’s their third series loss of the season — all three at home. They lost two of three to the Padres in their first home series of the season and then three of four to the Nationals April 24-27.

Not only do the Rockies have the best road record in the NL, but the Rockies, who have had a winning road record only once in their history (and they were 41-40 that year) also have the lowest NL ERA on the road.
