"This was a good year for our group. A lot of things transpired that I think will help us in the future," first-year Rockies manager Bud Black said. "Here we talked about our work ethic and our determination to get to where we want to be, and it was extremely admirable what our group did."
"Right away, all hell broke loose and from there on it was a heavyweight fight," Rockies manager Bud Black said. "We got close a couple times, they stretched the lead, we came back. It was a crazy game."
