With 10 games to go and a needed eight victories, the Colorado Rockies are headed into crunch time with the Arizona Diamondbacks being the first opponent on the docket.

It’s that time of year again in baseball world, the big push for post season.  The Colorado Rockies seem to have more of a history of crashing in these pivotal moments and facing disappointment from exciting momentous starts.

This year can not only be the exception but the has the makings of a year-end worth at least a decade of negative stories from the Mile High.

The Avalanche and Broncos have had their post season glory and we think it’s time for the Rockies to be added to the ranks.  If they want to beat the Nuggets, they will have to hurry.  There is still a fair share of drama to this season with 10 games remaining, the crew will have to win eight in order to make their October dreams come to fruition.

The beginning of the 10-game leg begins at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona at 7:40 MDT September 21, 2018.

The starting pitchers for both squads appear pretty similar side-by-side on paper so we will have to see who breaks through tonight with a stellar performance.

The Rockies will open with the steadfast German Marquez who has been on fire lately.  If he is consistent we only need the Rockies bats to finish the job and add one of the eight necessary victories to the tab.

In hopes of silencing those bats the Diamondbacks will start with Zack Greinke, an impressive right hander that is winning the split of 3-2 against the Rockies.

The 10 games remaining are consecutive and are must wins.  The three teams the Rockies face in this final push are, by record, not as good as the Colorado squad but as we all know ‘on any given day’ and all that.

If the Rockies are able to make a push this year it has to begin here and now, sweep the upcoming series’ and make their presence known or I guess they don’t belong there.
