Pirates snap Colorado’s five-game winning streak, but hope remains for a postseason berth.
The Colorado Rockies won five of their final six games heading into the 2022 MLB All-Star Break.
Although Sunday’s contest against the Pirates was unsuccessful, the Rockies will still be in postseason contention entering the second half of the season thanks to this year’s revised playoff format.
This October, a total of six teams from each league will enter the postseason – with a Wild Card Round scheduled to take place in a best-of-three format that will grant byes to the top two division winners in each league.
This means that Colorado is only seven games out of 6th Place in the National League entering the Break and are chasing the Phillies and Cardinals for that spot. In previous seasons, the Rockies would have to catch up to the lone Wild Card team in the National League – which at this point would be the current #4 seed Atlanta Braves (56-38).
Regular season action continues for Colorado this Friday as they travel to American Family Field in Milwaukee to take on the Brewers in a four game series before heading to Chicago for a two game stint against the White Sox.
Colorado’s next home stand at Coors Field won’t be until July 28th, when they host the NL West leading Dodgers in a four game, Thursday through Sunday series.
Rockies first-baseman C.J. Cron is the only Colorado player to be named an All-Star this year… and that is arguably because the MLB requires at least one member of each team to be selected to the All-Star roster each season.
The National League and American League All-Stars will meet this Tuesday, July 19th, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Colorado mobile sports betting apps are already accepting real money bets on Tuesday’s All-Star Game while offering a perfect opportunity for in-state sports bettors to make proposition or single game parlay wagers related to various outcomes.
