Wade Davis pitched a scoreless ninth against the Dodgers on Monday to earn his 17th save of the season.

Davis struck out one, and he allowed just an infield single to Matt Kemp; with Kemp being erased on a base running mistake as he turned towards second base and was tagged out. Davis is now 17-for-19 on saves this year, and his WHIP lowers to 1.03 to pair with his 2.66 ERA in 21 appearances.

Carlos Gonzalez drove in the go-ahead run on a pinch-hit single against the Dodgers on Monday.

It wasn't exactly hard contact, but Gonzalez put the ball in play against Scott Alexander and Chase Utley wasn't able to make the play. It's the 16th RBI of the season for the outfielder, and it "ups" his line to .226/.270/.387 over 106 at-bats in 2018.

Gerardo Parra hit a solo homer to help the Rockies beat the Dodgers on Monday.

Parra's homer was a solo shot off of Walker Buehler, and it was the first hit of the game for the Rockies in the top of the fifth inning that tied the game at 1-1. Parra now has three homers on the year, and he's slashing .277/.322/.394 on the season over 43 games.

German Marquez gave up just one run over seven strong innings against the Dodgers in a 2-1 victory on Monday.

Marquez allowed just two hits, and he walked two and struck out five. Outside of a solo homer by Max Muncy, Marquez was exceptional, and there wasn't much hard contact against the right-hander throughout. He's been great on the road this season (2.06 ERA), but understandably Coors Field (10.34) has been a different story. Up next is a start against the Reds at home, so fantasy owners can sit that one out.

DJ LeMahieu (thumb, wrist) played catch Monday.

He did not catch the ball in his glove, though, in order to protect his sprained thumb and small wrist fracture. In other words, LeMahieu is just keeping his arm in shape and is at the very beginning of his rehab.
May 21 - 6:29 PM

Trevor Story finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Story knocked an RBI double in the fourth inning and added a run-scoring single in the fifth, adding to his RBI total of 35 that's second-best in the National League. Story also has 10 homers, which rank among the league leaders as well, and he's hitting .250/.335/.512 in 47 games.
May 20 - 9:07 PM

Nolan Arenado filled up the stat sheet Sunday, going 3-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Giants.

Arenado collected three of the Rockies' 13 hits in the loss, and he's got five multi-hit games in his last eight contests. He's not putting up prolific offensive numbers but Arenado has been one of the best hitters, in terms of average, so far this year, batting .331 with a .418 on-base percentage and .567 slugging percentage. As the weather continues to warm up, his power numbers should tick upward as well.
May 20 - 8:53 PM

Tyler Anderson allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Giants.

Anderson allowed six hits and a walk in his 5 1/3 innings of work, the third straight start he's allowed four runs or more with fewer than six innings pitched. He entered that three-start stretch with a 3.78 ERA, and it sits at 4.74 after Sunday's game. The Reds are up next for Anderson when they visit Coors Field on Saturday.
May 20 - 8:34 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 and scored two runs in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He led off the game with an infield single and came around to score on a Nolan Arenado knock. He singled again in the fifth and was driven in by Trevor Story. Blackmon's batting average is depressed this year but everything else looks great. His batting averages the last two years were .324 and .331 but this year he owns a .269/.374/.538 line with 12 home runs, 23 RBI, 35 runs scored and four stolen bases in 41 games.
May 19 - 7:47 PM

Ian Desmond went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

Both runs he scored came on double-play groundouts by second baseman Daniel Castro. He also walked twice in the contest. Desmond has really struggled to get anything going at the plate this year despite playing half his games in the hitters' paradise of Coors Field. He has a gruesome .179/.232/.372 slash line but he does have seven homers and 21 RBI in 44 games.
May 19 - 7:42 PM

Jon Gray surrendered five runs in 3 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He gave up a lot of contact in this one, allowing nine hits and a walk in the brief start. He can't blame the poor results on Coors Field as this was played at AT&T Park, one of the best pitchers' parks in baseball. Gray falls to 4-6 with a 5.34 ERA and 1.40 WHIP after 10 starts.
May 19 - 7:36 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday.

It's the second straight game he's been benched, and this time it comes against a right-hander. CarGo is hitting just .156/.243/.281 so far in May. David Dahl is in right field Saturday. The Rockies also have Tony Wolters catching over Chris Iannetta.
May 19 - 1:48 PM

Ian Desmond had a three-run homer and an RBI double to lead the Rockies to a 6-1 win over the Giants on Friday.

His lineup spot is guaranteed for another month now. Desmond could still put up quality fantasy numbers for the Rockies if only he can continue to get the ball into the air as he did tonight. Nearly two-thirds of his balls in play this year have been grounders. That he has seven homers anyway is something of a miracle; his homer-per-flyball rate is twice his career norm.
May 19 - 1:24 AM

Kyle Freeland picked up his fourth win by pitching 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Friday against the Giants.

Freeland has been terrific, turning in a 3.17 ERA and a 49/18 K/BB ratio over 54 innings this season. If the Rockies had an offense, he'd be better than 4-4 right now, but at least he's 3-0 this month after going 1-4 in April.
May 19 - 1:22 AM

Carlos Gonzalez is absent from the Rockies' starting lineup on Friday night against the Giants.

It looks to be a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder with left-hander Derek Holland on the hill for the Giants. Noel Cuevas will start in his place in right field and bat fifth for the Rockies on Friday.
