Monday by Comparison: Doesn't Get Much Better Than This July
Two games in St. Louis remain in this month. The Rockies, however, have already assured thesmselves of no worse than the fifth best month in franchise history, and if all goes well against the Cardinals, it could be the best the Rockies have ever put together.
With the weekend sweep of the A's, the Rockies are 16-5 in the month of July, a .762 winning percentage.
If they win the two games in St. Louis their .783 winning percentage would be the best ever for a single month.
If they split the two games they would have a .739 winning percentage, which would be the third-best month in franchise history.
And if they were to lose both games in St. Louis the .696 winning percentage would be the fifth-best in franchise history.
The Rockies, meanwhile, are 57-47, which equals the second-best record in franchise history after 104 games. In the three seasons in which the Rockies had the three best records after 104 games, the team advanced to the post-season each time.
