Following the Rockies’ best month in franchise history, former Rockies broadcaster Wayne Hagin joined Mark Jackson and Gil Whiteley of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7 to discuss what’s next for the Rockies in their playoff chase.

“It has been fun to watch, especially a 17-6 July,” Hagin said. “We haven’t seen that kind of July around these parts in a long long time.” That record-breaking month shows that the Rockies possess what Hagin believes is the necessary grit to fight out the rest of the season. “I like the resiliency of this team, I truly do,” Hagin said. “The way they bounce back after a game they should’ve had in hand and [lost]… they do have a tendency to forget bad things.”

For the Rockies to have what Hagin calls “selective amnesia” is a positive for the club. Hagin brought up beleaguered closer Wade Davis as an example, “Wade Davis has done a great job. He’s had eleven save opportunities in a row that he’s captured.”

Davis, who had a career-high 32 saves last season with the Chicago Cubs, has 31 with the Rockies. He could have tied the record on Wednesday, but his blown save and loss ended that chance — and his eleven-game streak.

Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez had an awful 2017, batting only .262 with 14 home runs and 57 RBI. Gonzalez struggled again during the first half of the 2018 season, but now he’s batting .288 with 13 home runs and 47 RBI. In 2017, Gonzalez hit .221 with six home runs and 22 RBI prior to the All-Star break, but afterwards, he batted .314 with eight hom eruns and 35 RBI. Gonzalez has done the same thing this season. Before the break, Gonzalez hit .280 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI — a far better first half than last year, but he’s heating up again. Since the break, Gonzalez has hit .333 with two homers and six RBI in only 11 games.
