Ranking the strengths of National League contenders

The success of the Rockies' bullpen has been an obvious plus this season, but perhaps more impressive has been the team's play away from Coors Field.

Vargas hits 480-plus foot home run

Kennys Vargas' seventh home run of the season was not only Tuesday's longest, but it was also one of three that traveled more than 450 feet.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers beat the Mets 12-0 behind Corey Seager's three home runs and have won 11 of 12. The Rockies have won six in a row. The Diamondbacks lost, but have still won 10 of 12. This is shaping up as maybe the best NL West race since the Braves and Giants both won more 100 games in 1993.

Time for "M-V-P!" chants in Colorado as Nolan Arenado lines a two-run triple off the right-field scoreboard to give the Rockies a 4-3 lead. Goldschmidt homers, Arenado responds, it's like Ali and Frazier trading punches in Manila. Two heavyweights battling for the division ... and maybe MVP honors down the road. Greg Holland in to close it out.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Rockies have won five in a row even though the bullpen has been a little shaky the past week or so. David Peralta just tied the game in the eighth with a home run off Chris Rusin just inside the right-field foul pole and Paul Goldschmidt greeted Adam Ottavino with a first-pitch home run to right field and a 3-2 lead for Arizona.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Another solid outing for Rockies rookie German Marquez, holding the Diamondbacks to one run over six innings. He got help in his final frame when the D-backs ran themselves out of a potential crooked number when Tony Wolters fired a perfect throw to catch Jake Lamb trying to steal second.
