No NL team has won a series in Oakland since 2012, but Colorado’s probably not concerning itself with a series victory. Simply winning a game in an AL park needs to happen first, and with AL ERA leader Sonny Gray taking the mound Tuesday night, the Rockies matching the all-time record for a road losing streak in interleague play seems the more likely outcome. Oakland (35-44) won 7-1 on Monday and is an MLB-best 18-5 at O.co Coliseum against the NL since the start of 2013.

There’s no stopping Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado these days. Arenado smashed two more home runs Sunday, giving him 24 on the season. That puts him in a tie for third in the majors with the potentially super-human Bryce Harper. According to our friends at Roto Arcade , Arenado has been the best fantasy player in the game over the last month and they say it hasn’t been particularly close. Of course, there’s always a healthy dose of skepticism when a Rockies player is putting up monster power numbers, but before labelling Arenado yet another product of the high-altitude environment at Coors Field in Denver, take a quick look at his splits. [ On this week's StewPod: Looking back at a fun week in baseball with Jeff Passan ] Arenado has actually been better on the road than at home this season, hitting 15 of his 24 home runs away from Coors with an OPS over .100 points higher. His recent tear at the plate has little to do with Colorado and everything to do with how he’s seeing the ball in the batter’s box. Nolan Arenado since May 24th 34 games 17 homers, 47 RBI .333/.348/.811 Over 162 games, that a pace of 81 HR & 223 RBI — High Heat Stats MLB (@HighHeatStats) June 29, 2015 On top of this offensive explosion, his awesome skills at third base have already made him a two-time Gold Glove award winner. Expect to see Arenado receive his first All-Star game invite in the very near future. The Rockies haven’t made the playoffs since 2009 and with a 33-42 record in 2015, it doesn’t appear that streak is going to end this year. With the 24-year-old Arenado blossoming into a two-way star, they’re hoping better days aren’t too far down the road.

On a day when he got a break from his job as the Colorado Rockies starting shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki stepped into a starring role of a different sort. Tulowitzki started a five-run eighth inning with his first career pinch-hit home run, and the Rockies rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 Thursday. It’s difficult,” Tulowitzki said.
