The Colorado Rockies came into the All-Star break winners of 13 of their last 16 games, and find themselves in the thick of the NL West race.

Host Shawn Drotar (Host, “Mornings at 5280′“) and guest Ronnie Kohrt (Mile High Sports’ “Broncos Blitz” podcast) discuss this weekend’s three-game series in Arizona; a chance for the Rockies to leapfrog the Diamondbacks and claim second place for themselves.

The Rockies’ next month is set to define them; every team they’ll play – save Pittsburgh, who’s only one game under .500 – has a winning record; can the Rockies keep their hot streak going? Who needs to step up in the blazing desert?
