Picture of the Day: Rockies honor victims of Aurora shooting

21 Comments

The Rockies were in San Diego last night, but their hearts were with the victims of Friday’s movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado which killed 12 and wounded 59.

The Rockies wore “7-20” eye black stickers and black wrist bands along with their purple jerseys. They also hung a black jersey in their dugout which read “We remember 7-20.”

Via the Associated Press, here’s a picture from before last night’s game at PETCO Park as the Padres and Rockies observed a moment of silence for those affected by the tragedy.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
