In like a lion; out like a lamb.
After such a promising start to the season, the Colorado Rockies finished with a whimper — and it was the last-place Diamondbacks that provided the final blow. Colorado lost, 11-3, on Sunday to cap a frustrating, sometimes exciting and mostly strange campaign. The Rockies conclude 2020 with a disappointing 26-34 record (including a 15-31 slide after their hot start).
Kyle Freeland entered the offseason a bit earlier than he would have preferred. The Rockies left-hander, who entered Sunday’s game on a roll, pitched just 2 1⁄3 innings and allowed a season-high six earned runs.
