GJ Rockies snap nine-game skid

By Patti Arnold

It’s over. The longest losing streak in the albeit brief four-year history of the Grand Junction Rockies ended Wednesday night with a 3-1 victory over Great Falls. The Rockies (23-28 Pioneer League, 3-10 second half) rode the pitching ...


Close not enough

By Patti Arnold

Even the always-optimistic Anthony Sanders feels just a little bit snake-bitten. When you play so many one-run games and can’t get over the hump, that snake isn’t just a little garden snake. It’s more like a full-grown ...


Grand Junction’s losing streak grows to eight games after late home run

By Patti Arnold

This is a team mired in a slump, searching for a way out. A team that falls behind early because of poor starting pitching, but rallies to take the lead, gets solid middle relief pitching, loses the lead, regains the lead and then some ...


Sunday struggles at Suplizio

By Dale Shrull

The Toddfather returns

By Matt Meyer

Todd Helton can remember all coaches, good and bad, he had during his 17-year career. He can also remember 2010 when Tony Diaz, who was managing the Casper Ghosts, helped fix Helton’s swing during a rehab stint in Wyoming. “I was ...


Triple the fun: GJ Rockies lead league in three-baggers

By Matt Meyer

Triples are normally a rare hit in baseball. Not so for the Grand Junction Rockies. The cavernous gaps in the outfield of Suplizio Field, and a lineup that can run from top to bottom, have helped the Rookie-level team leg out plenty of ...


A tough defeat

By Patti Arnold

The three-day All-Star break came at a good time for the Pioneer League baseball teams, but getting back to the grind was a little tough Thursday night. “Both teams looked flat,” Grand Junction manager Anthony Sanders said. ...
