Can’t Win Them All: Colorado Rockies End Cleveland Guardians’ Winning Streak

The Cleveland Guardians’ comeback attempt came up short on Monday, as the Colorado Rockies defended Coors Field with an 8-6 victory.

The Guardians’ nine-game winning streak came to an end as the Rockies exploded for six runs in the fourth inning to wipe out a 3-1 Cleveland lead.

Cleveland seemed to be on their way to win No. 10 as Jose Ramirez drove in Tyler Freeman with a groundout in the first inning.

The Guardians loaded the bases in the second inning, and Bo Naylor grounded into a double play to score David Fry.

“No RBI for you!”

Tyler Freeman singled to score Kyle Manzardo, and Cleveland was up 3-0. Fry’s RBI single in the fourth pressed Cleveland’s advantage to 4-1.


But despite having the second-worst record in the National League, the Rockies can get the job done at home. They scored three runs in the fourth to tie the game, and then Charlie Blackmon launched a three-run homer to put Colorado up 7-4.

Blackmon had an outstanding game for the Rockies. He hit an RBI double to increase Colorado’s lead to 8-4, and he made a sliding catch on a foul ball in right field.

Cleveland started its comeback in the seventh when Bo Naylor scored on a double by Ramirez, who collected his MLB-leading 54th RBI.

Andres Gimenez singled in the ninth to score Freeman, but Ramirez struck out and slumping Josh Naylor popped out to end the game.

On the mound, Xzavion Curry (0-1) took the loss and lasted only 3 1/3 innings.

The series will continue on Tuesday night with Triston McKenzie (2-3) taking the mound for Cleveland against Ryan Feltner. First pitch is set for 8:40 p.m. Eastern time.
