The Rocks celebrate
their come from behind
victory in game #4
    
Final Score:     ROCKIES   5    Yankees 2
WP- Cooper (3-0)    LP-  Ganley        GWRBI - Sutich    

Game 4 was exciting right out of the gates. In the 1st inning, the Rockies loaded the bases and scored 2 runs, but the Yankees came right back to score 3 of their own. In the 4th, the Yankees added 2 more runs on a 3B by Stenzel, a Brian Nolan SACF, and a Mugar RBI single. The Rockies were held scoreless after the first inning as Brian Gauvin setteled down to throw 3 strong innings as the Yankees were leading 5 to 2 going into the 5th inning. The 5th is when the gates opened again for the Rockies as 5 runs crossed the plate. Dave Mitrou lead the inning with a 3B. Following a Mike Close walk and stolen base, Kevin Spitz brought them both home on 2B of his own. But the damage wasn't done. Neal Roper scored Spitz on a single, Kyle Philson walked, and Bart Lawyer's 2B into right field brought in the final 2 runs of the inning. The Rockies scored 2 more in the top of the 7th on a John Sutich line drive up the middle, with Roper and Philson in scoring position. The Yankees put up a huge threat in the 7th as they wouldn't go down easily. Hits by Jeff Coveney (who ended up out #1 on a FC), Greg Crossman, and an HBP to Mike Ganley, found the bases loaded and one. Two runs crossed on an error, but the second out was recorded on the play. So with 2 outs, 2 runs across, the Yankees still had life with the tying run at the plate. But as Brian Cooper did all game, he got Burton to ground out. Cooper picked up his second win of the series, as both teams look to game 5 to decide the Champs!!
Again Bart "THE SNOWMAN" Lawyer comes up big in the playoffs !!

ROCKIES 2000 Season Wrap-Up & 2001 Season Preview

The ROCKIES 2000 season came to a close with mixed emotions. Although the Rockies won the Eastern Division and finished second overall in the league with a franchise best 18-4 record, they again fell just short of a trip to the finals. After defeating the long time rival Braves in the first round, the Rockies fell to the hard-hittingYankees two games to three in the semi-finals.  The third and deciding game was a heartbreaker for the Rocks as they lost 4-3 with both the tying and winning  runs in scoring position.

The 2000 season was great one though.  The Rockies had their first MABL batting champion in rookie Gary Moran (.519 BA).  Gary was also among the league leaders in hits with 32, home runs with 5 and RBI with 27.  Dave Mitrou (.386, 26 R, 27 RBI, 17 SB), Neal Roper (.400, 24 H, 24 RBI, 17 R), Ricky Corson (.409, 18 H, 17 R), Leland Boutilier (.397, 29 H, 22 R, 13 SB, 10 RBI) and Chris Clark (.424, 28 H, 20 R, 20 RBI, 10 SB) were also major offensive contributors all year long.  

The team was very close to having the league's Cy Young award winner as well.  Five year veteran Tommy Langmeyer had his most productive season ever, finishing 8-1 on the hill with a league leading 1.98 ERA and 59 strike outs in 53 innings pitched. T-Lang only walked sixteen for the entire season.  The Rocks' entire pitching staff was outstanding as five different arms recorded wins, while not one pitcher had more than one loss!

This year the Rockies will settle for no less than a championship!  Although the team has lost eight roster members from last season, they have replaced them with seven new faces which all promise to contribute heavily to the success of the team.  Bart Lawyer, all-star third baseman for the White Sox for the past three seasons has joined the Rockies  and will add another powerful bat and hopefully some stability at third this year.  The Rocks also boast four key free agent signings:  Chris Webb, a lanky left-hander who spent his college pitching years traveling to the NCAA's with Marist, Michael Close who holds 17 major offensive records at Stonehill College, John Sutich-former catcher/utility-man for St. Michael's in Vermont and right handed pitcher Jeff Daigle of Bryant.  The Rockies also drafted two players in the 2001 MABL Draft:  Speedy outfielder Kyle Philson of Virginia Weslyan and his brother, Keith--a hard throwing right hander formerly of Bentley College.

With these new roster members and the high level of talent and leadership of the returning Rockies, the 2001 season should prove to be the most exciting and successful one ever!!!
