1.) SCORING 10 OR MORE RUNS IN A GAME NEARLY GUARANTEES COLORADO A VICTORY (I know this is a “duhhh” stat, but):
Last night’s game was the 91st time the Rox have scored 10 plus runs in a regular season game since 2007 (WS season).
The team is 86-5 in those games.
In 2010 Colorado lost to Arizona (Kelly Johnson 10th inning HR) and Philly, 12-11(weird September make-up game).
And to Boston 13-11 (pedroia 5/5 3 HR game)
ALL AT HOME!
2.) LAST YEAR COLORADO SCORED 5 OR MORE RUNS IN AN INNING 20X
(considered a “big inning” by the PR staff)
The team’s record was 18-2 in those 20 games.
The team scored 7 in an inning 1x (9/6 vs. AZ); they scored 7 last night in the 5th inning.
The club was 1-14 a year ago when allowing 5 or more runs in a single inning.
This year they are 1-0 since SF put up 7 last night in the 4th.
3.) The Rockies are 15-5 all time when CARGO triples in a game; including 4-1 vs SF.
Last night was his first ever 2 triple game.
4.) 8 Rockies had 2 or more hits…5 had 3 hits.
It’s now the fifth time the Rockies have had at least five players with three or more hits . . .EVER
Rockies, 5+ Players with 3+ Hits

The Rockies are 127-58 (67% winning percentage).
6.) EY JR now has 107 career hits;
34 have been infield hits (32%)
13 have been bunt base hits (12%); with last night’s push bunt maybe being his best ever.
