The Colorado Rockies are off to a scorching beginning to the 2015 MLB season. Actually they are performing a great impression of the 2014 Milwaukee Brewers, a team that nobody thought much of but managed to begin red hot from the gate last season. Ironically the action happened to be against the exiting Brewers squad.
Colorado set up 10 runs on 16 hits against Milwaukee on Opening Day at Miller Park. In the next game they exploded with 5 runs on 12 hits. Most importantly they won both games.
Considering Colorado was horrendous last season, it is encouraging to see them perform at this level far from Coors Field. Even though the Rockies were not projected to be as excellent in 2015, there is still a lot of reason to be proud of the accomplishments through two games.
At this time, Colorado leads the majors in runs (15), hits (28) and at bats (80). In addition they rank third in the big leagues in batting average (.350).
Slugger Troy Tulowitzki leads the majors with three doubles. He also is tied with teammate Nolan Arenado with the league lead with four runs and five hits. Meanwhile, Arenado and teammate Corey Dickerson are tied for the most runs batted in (5) in the majors. If that were not enough, Arenado, Dickerson and teammate Carlos Gonzalez rank second in the big leagues in doubles (2).
If Colorado continues to keep winning at this pace, the remaining portion of the National League West has plenty to worry about this year.
