This was the year the Rockies went to the World Series. The Rockies finished the regular season winning 13 or their last 14 games, tying with San Diego for the wild card. Then the Rockies won a one game playoff versus the Padres, then swept the Phillies and the Diamondbacks. Going into the world series against Boston, the Rockies had won an amazing 21 of the their last 22 games.
The game I attended was the Rockies 160th game. Entering this game they had an 11 game win streak. The pitching matchup featured the aces of both staffs, Jeff Francis vs. Brandon Webb. The game had a playoff 'feel' and unfortunately the Rockies were bested 4 to 2.
