Another year, another September hot streak for the Rockies

Sep 13, 2010, 1:17 PM EST

San Diego’s collapse has dropped the Padres into a first-place tie with the Giants atop the NL West, but equally amazing is that the Rockies are now just 1.5 games back in the division thanks to their current 10-game winning streak.
Colorado hasn’t lost since September 2, slicing their deficit from 7.5 games to 1.5 games during that time in what has almost become a standard performance by the Rockies in the season’s final month.
Not only are they 10-2 so far this September, the Rockies went 18-9 last September and 20-8 in September of 2007 on their way to the World Series.
Many things have changed in that time, including the Rockies’ manager, but over the past four seasons Colorado is 58-33 (.674) in September compared to 277-262 (.513) in all other months.
Or put another way, in September they’ve played like a 110-win team and in all other months they’ve played like an 83-win team.

    A Phillies – Rockies showdown for the National League pennant. Another 36-degree playoff game in Colorado.

    The Rockies can take it if the Phillies can @ 50-Year Phils fan :-)
    I can’t think of two better NL teams to play for the Pennant.
    The roomie and I were discussing this this morning, just one year we want the Rockos to make it dull for us, play 110-win ball all season long & wrap up the division early…
