The Rockies began their final week of the season at home; dominating the visiting Philadelphia Phillies behind a strong outing by Jon Gray. If the team intends too make the postseason for the second year in a row, however, that win will have to be only a taste of what’s to come in the season’s final six games at Coors Field as the Phillies and Washington Nationals play out the string against a desperate Colorado squad.

Host Shawn Drotar (Host, “Mornings at 5280′“) and guest Ronnie Kohrt (Host, “The Broncos Blitz” podcast) discuss what the Rockies have to do in order to finish the season strong. They no longer control their destiny, but the St. Louis Cardinals – who hold the final wild-card spot at present – have a much more difficult schedule in the final week.

The NL West title’s still in play, but hopes are fading fast. Do the Rockies need to win four, five. or even (gulp) all six remaining games in order to make the playoffs? Would that even be enough? Shawn and Ronnie discuss all of these topics and more in the latest episode of the “Blake Street Irregulars”!
