Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

23 Comments

The Rockies have the top-scoring offense in Major League Baseball and they wasted no time showing their strength on Saturday evening in Cincinnati.

Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson opened the game with back-to-back solo home runs, and then Justin Morneau went deep for a two-run shot in the top of the third inning. Dickerson was the standout performer in the 11-2 rout of the Reds, finishing with two doubles, two homers, and a career-high four RBI. Colorado starter Jordan Lyles racked up a season-high eight strikeout while moving to 5-0 on the year.

The Rockies open play Sunday with the best run differential in the big leagues and a 23-16 record.

They trail the Giants by one game in the National League West standings.
