Last night’s loss to the Cardinals was the 17th straight time the Rockies have been defeated on Sunday, which is an MLB-record that shortstop Troy Tulowitzki called “mind-boggling.”
Colorado actually won its first two Sunday games this season, back in April, but have dropped 17 in a row since then. Overall this season they’re 2-17 on Sunday compared to 54-49 on every other day of the week.
If instead of going 2-17 the Rockies had simply played .500 ball on Sunday they would be 64-58, which would put them just a half-game behind the Diamondbacks in the NL West, slightly in front of the Giants.
“I wish I could make sense of it. I can’t,” Todd Helton told Troy Renck of the Denver Post. “It’s crazy.”
