The Rockies are 37-32 against the NL West this year with seven games remaining. The winning percentage is the fourth-best in franchise history. Now, the Rockies could set a record for success within the division, but they would have to win their final seven games — against the Giants on Sunday, and then sweep three-game series at the Dodgers (Monday through Wednesday) and the Diamondbacks (next weekend).

If they win four of seven they will have the third-best winning percentage, five of seven would equal the second-best, and six of seven would equal the franchise record set in 2007.

The Rockies have lost back-to-back games, which leaves them with an 81-67 record, equaling the third best record in franchise history after 148 games, one game back of 2010, and two games back of the club-best 2009. It is only the seventh time the Rockies have had a winning record after 148 games. In 1995, when they earned their first wild-card spot, the strike-shortened season was 144 games.
