On Tuesday night, the Rockies reached the seven-run mark for the first time this season in an 8-2 victory in San Diego. The familiar refrain of “taco’s” echoed across Rockies Twitter for the first time in 2019, as fans celebrated the long-overdue milestone. It was, by more than double, the longest it had ever taken for Colorado to reach seven runs in a game to start a season. The previous record for futility was eight games. This season began with seventeen taco(‘s)-less outings.
Of course, this statistic is somewhat arbitrary. The Rockies scored exactly six runs five times in their first eleven games this season.
