Trevor Story expects the Rockies to turn it around at home and translate their success on the road to Coors Field.
Speaking with Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7, Story discussed how unusual it is for the Rockies to struggle at home.
“The home/road splits have been a little different for sure,” Story said. “Just in my two times in the past two years, usually we dominate at home. It definitely feels like a different year, and if we can find ways to get wins on the road, I think that’s going to help us a lot. I don’t think how it’s been going here at home is going to continue.”
After last night’s 4-2 victory over the Angels to start this home stand, Colorado starting pitching has made nine consecutive quality starts, a franchise record.
“That’s a testament to our guys, they’ve been great so far,” Story said. “Really competing and battling, and keeping us in games where we haven’t performed offensively. They’ve been great.”
The Rockies’ offense has begun to heat up during the winning streak, as well. “It’s warming up and it’s just kind of getting into the season,” Story said. “Hitting is a weird thing; it can come and go. But we’re just trying to be consistent, and if we can find ways to win when were not swinging it like we know we can, I think that makes us dangerous.”
Story expressed his interest in playing against the Los Angeles Angels for the first time in his career. “[Mike] Trout is one of the best players in the game,” said Story. “I haven’t played against him yet, so that’s going to be fun. But it’s all business out there. We’re trying to beat them just as much as they’re trying to beat us. But it’s going to be cool with [Albert] Pujols, too. He’s kind of a living legend, so it’s going to be cool to see him too.”
