Thursday by Comparison: Rockies Equaled Second Best Start in Franchise History

By late June, the Rockies' fan base was restless. They lost eight of their first 24 games that month, and were fading fast in the NL West, dropping eight games out of first place.

Now look at them.

In their last seven series, the Rockies have won six and split two games with the Astros. And they have rebounded to put together what is the second-best record after 101 games in a season in franchise history.
