By Comparison: Rockies Have Home Sweet Home Feeling -- Again

The Rockies struggled earlier this season. After a loss to the Giants at AT&T Park on June 27, they found themselves in fourth place in the NL West, eight games behind the division-leading D-backs, and only 3 1/2 games ahead of the last-place Padres.

Today? The Rockies host the Dodgers at Coors Field Sunday afternoon, sitting atop the NL West by 1 1/2 games, and the key to the surge has been that the Rockies since the final weekend of June have regained their home-field advantage.

The Rockies have rebounded from a team that had the 13th worst home-field record in the NL prior to June 28 to a team with the best home-field record since.
