Colorado Rockies vs. Oakland Athletics — Game Preview

The Colorado Rockies (2-1) are looking to put a disappointing 2019 campaign behind them, and they’re off to a good start so far. The 2019 Rockies (71-91) finished well below .500 last season with the fourth worst record in the National League. However they return their best players, including an excellent left side of the infield.

Third baseman Nolan Arenado and shortstop Trevor Story led the team in offensive production with a combined 76 home runs and 203 RBIs. Story has already started well in three games, so if Arenado gets hot, the Rockies could surge this fall.

The A's lost that one game playoff to the Tampa Bay Rays, but they hope to build off of that success this year.
