A rare comeback win for the Rockies

The Rockies trailed 1-0 through eight innings on Thursday but scored twice in the ninth to win 2-1. It's only the second time in the last six seasons (also in final game of 2015) that the Rockies have won a game in which they trailed and were being shut out when they came to bat in the ninth inning, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Three rookies enjoying big Julys

The Twins' Max Kepler is tied with the Rockies' Trevor Story for the second-most homers by a rookie in July, one behind the Padres' Ryan Schimpf with nine. This is the first calendar month in major league history in which three different rookies each hit at least eight home runs, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Despite a strong start from Dylan Bundy (five perfect innings before tiring), the Orioles lost 3-1 in the rubber match against the Rockies. It's just the second time this season that the O's - whose .698 home winning percentage is the best in baseball - have dropped a series at Camden Yards.

Keep record book handy for Trevor Story

Another day, another chapter in Story's dream season. His two RBIs on Tuesday increased his season total to 71 in 93 games. Over the last 25 years, only four other rookies reached 70 RBIs in a season in 93 or fewer games, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

  • Jose Abreu (2014, 78 games)
  • Ryan Braun (2007, 88 games)
  • Brian Daubach (1999, 89 games)
  • Albert Pujols (2001, 92 games)

Orioles ace Chris Tillman tied a season-high by allowing six runs as Baltimore lost to Colorado 6-3 to snap a five-game winning streak. In each of his previous four starts, Tillman - who came in with a 14-2 record, a 3.18 ERA, and legit Cy Young buzz - had gone at least seven innings and allowed no more than one earned run.

Small chance Rockies trade Arenado

Nolan Arenado is untouchable right now, but the Rockies better figure out how to sign him to a long-term deal this offseason or his name is going to become very popular in trade rumors next year, David Schoenfield writes. Untouchable players for all 30 teams

Lindor, Arenado could make #MLBRank

When projecting the future chances of Francisco Lindor and Nolan Arenado on our all-time top-100 list, we must consider that both players are behind Carlos Correa and Manny Machado at their respective positions. That doesn't mean they won't ever make the cut. #MLBRank: Future top 100 candidates

Lyles wears the collar for Rockies

Against the Orioles on Monday, Jordan Lyles became the first pitcher in Rockies history to commit a game-ending error, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

With their 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rockies, the Orioles have now ripped off five straight victories. It's the fifth time this season they've won at least five in a row. If Detroit holds on to beat Boston, the O's will have a two-game lead in the AL East.
