Sunday Recap: Home Run Highlight

In Sunday’s 8-4 loss, Rooker managed to hit a home run, showing some promise against Colorado’s starter Cal Quantrill, with a record of 2-for-5.

Cal Quantrill’s Comeback

Cal Quantrill had a rough start in April, not winning a single game. But come May, he’s been on fire, winning all three starts and giving up just two runs over 19 2/3 innings. His hot streak is a big plus for the Rockies, and he’s aiming to keep it going against the Athletics.

Historical Matchup Recap

Last year, the Rockies and Athletics were in a similar situation. Despite a losing streak, the Athletics turned things around by winning two out of three games and scoring a whopping 19 runs in those victories. It just goes to show how quickly things can change in baseball.

Injury Updates and Possible Returns

The Rockies might get a boost with the potential return of key players like Kris Bryant and Nolan Jones, who are progressing well in their rehab assignments. Their comeback could significantly strengthen Colorado’s offense.

Pitching Matchups to Watch

Cal Quantrill: With his impressive May performance and a good track record against the Athletics, Quantrill is a crucial player for the Rockies. His current 3-3 record with a 3.66 ERA highlights his ability to control the game from the mound.

Aaron Brooks: Brooks is making his second start of the season. In his first outing, he held the Houston Astros to three runs over seven innings but didn’t get any run support. The 34-year-old right-hander is hoping to change that against the Rockies.

Manager Insights

Rockies manager Bud Black has been stressing the need for timely hitting. “During the streak, we got big hits, two-out hits, and kept innings going,” he said. “This season, hitting with runners in scoring position has been a challenge. When we were winning, we nailed it.”


Both the Rockies and Athletics are eager for a turnaround as they head into this series. With key players possibly returning and some crucial pitching matchups, this three-game set in Oakland could be a game-changer for either team. Fans can look forward to a series filled with high stakes and potential excitement as both teams strive to end their losing streaks and get their bats going.
