The Colorado Rockies begin their final regular season series tonight on a seven game win streak and with a division title in their sights.

It’s been a long 162 game season. After experiencing a tough loss in last year’s wildcard game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Rockies were determined to improve their play and solidify themselves as a solid competitor for a World Series. With three games remaining in the season, the Rockies are lacing up in front of their home crowd at Coors Field to begin a very important series against the Washington Nationals tonight.

This past week the Rockies dominated the Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field. Led by third baseman Nolan Arenado, center fielder Charlie Blackmon, right fielder David Dahl, and pitchers Jon Gray and German Marquez, the Rockies outscored the Phillies 39-7 in their four game series, including a 14-0 victory featuring a natural cycle in the eighth inning and seven scoreless innings pitched by Marquez.

The last seven games that the Rockies played just give you a small example of how driven this team is to win. After being swept by the Dodgers on Sept. 19, the Rockies trailed in the standings and gave the Dodgers a tighter grip on the first seed of the NL West. A hard fought sweep against the Diamondbacks excelled the Rockies into an even more impressive sweep of the Phillies.

The second place Dodgers sit one game behind the Rockies for the NL West lead as they travel to San Francisco to begin their final three game series against the Giants. With both teams playing this weekend, the NL West champion will be unveiled on Monday. Tune in to AT&T Sports Network tonight at 6:30 to watch the Rockies begin their final stretch to the postseason.
