MLB teams put division rivalries and playoff races on hold to celebrate Monday's solar eclipse.
2017 ScheduleAll times ET
Sunday's longest home runs
Kevin Kiermaier came out with a bang in just his third game off the DL, pacing the competition with a 443-foot leadoff home run. Jesus Aguilar hit a blast that traveled over 440 feet for the second day in a row, while Cheslor Cuthbert's homer was his second of the season and first since April 8.
Jesus Aguilar homered twice, Chase Anderson won in his return from the disabled list and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 8-4 on Sunday for their sixth victory in seven games.
The Rockies have been the worst team at controlling opponents' baserunning, specifically letting them take extra bases on balls hit to the outfield.
Pinch-hitter Jesus Aguilar connected for a go-ahead home run with two outs in the ninth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-3 Saturday night for their fifth win in six games.
Charlie Blackmon hit his sixth leadoff home run of the season, German Marquez won for the first time in seven weeks and the Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-4 on Friday night.
Rockies shuffle roster
The Rockies recalled RHP Scott Oberg and OF Mike Tauchman from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday. Colorado optioned RHP Jeff Hoffman and 1B Ryan McMahon to Triple-A in corresponding roster moves.
Before conversations with Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo and Royals director of pro scouting Gene Watson, Pedro Gomez chats with Bob Nightengale about the Cubs facing another injury, the NL wild-card race, the phenomenal job done by Mike Scioscia this season and more.
Ender Inciarte hit two of Atlanta's four homers and the Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 10-4 on Thursday.
Colorado Rockies slugger Nolan Arenado avoided serious injury after a ball hit off his left hand in the field Thursday.
Story's 'K' streak continues
Trevor Story's run of consecutive games with a strikeout was extended in the fifth inning of Thursday afternoon's game thanks to Braves rookie right-hander Lucas Sims.
Trevor Story had two homers and a career-high six RBI, Jon Gray pitched six strong innings, and the Colorado Rockies broke out of an offensive slump in a big way to beat the Atlanta Braves 17-2 on Wednesday night.
Ottavino is the only pitcher to ever wear zero; he said it's an "O" for his last name. He has worn it since little league, though his former team wasn't on board with him using it.
If you could hurt a computer's feelings, McMahon did that with his rough 2016 season. Hitting .354/.401/.587 in the minors this year has mended those fences quite a bit.
The Rockies have scored three runs or fewer in eight straight games -- and three of those were even played at Coors Field. The finger can be pointed at the lower half of the order.
Brandon Phillips scored the go-ahead run on a rare error by Nolan Arenado, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Blackmon, Springer hit rare milestone
With RBIs being partially dependent on opportunity, racking them up as a leadoff man is no easy task. George Springer drove in his 70th run of the season Tuesday to join an exclusive club. Charlie Blackmon did so in late July, after also accomplishing the feat in 2016.
Nolan Arenado, who leads the majors with 100 RBIs, was set to start at third base and bat third against Atlanta at Coors Field on Tuesday night.
Freeland activated for Tuesday start
The Rockies reinstated LHP Kyle Freeland (groin) from the 10-day disabled list to start Tuesday vs. the Braves. Colorado optioned LHP Zac Rosscup to Triple-A in a corresponding roster move. Freeland is 11-7 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 77/44 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 121 2/3 innings this season.
Keith Law talks to Eric Karabell and Boog Sciambi about Chad Bettis' return, the Phillies' rebuild, if the Orioles should sell Manny Machado to the highest bidder, Boston's young stars, Aaron Judge & more. Plus, "The Numbers Game" with Sarah Langs.
Josh Macri recaps all of Monday's MLB action, including a triumphant return for Chad Bettis, a gem spun by Zack Greinke, a franchise mark for Giancarlo Stanton and much more.
Ben Stiller, fellow MLB players show support for Chad Bettis following first start after cancer battle
Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis, who battled testicular cancer in the offseason, inspired many by dominating in his first 2017 start Monday at Coors Field.
Sometimes baseball can represent so much more. And with a strong outing in his first start after weeks of chemo, the Rockies righty did just that.
