Cinderella's Going To The Ball! Rockies Sweep D-Backs With 6-4 Win!

Since the dawn of creation human beings have held great affection for the "Underdogs." From the Biblical tales of David versus Goliath through Rocky Balboa against Apollo Creed people just naturally support the challenger. It probably stems from some deep seeded primal urge that goes way beyond my area of knowledge but we have all done it, at one time or another. Baseball has been filled with tales of teams overcoming adversity to grab the brass ring. "Dem Bums" the Brooklyn Dodgers finally overcoming years of futility to beat the Monolithic New York Yankees, and finally win their first World Series! The "Amazin' Mets" under Gil Hodges in 1969 who shocked the planet and beat the highly favored Baltimore Orioles, seven years after setting the MLB record for most losses in a season. The 2004 Boston Red Sox down 0-3 to the Yankees in the A.L.C.S. only to come back from the brink and win eight straight games to finally bury the chants of "1918."

Well Monday night a new name was added to MLB's roll call of unlikely heroes the 2007 Colorado Rockies! All they have done so far is to win 21 of their last 22 games and sweep two straight Post Season Series. For the first time in the franchise's history Colorado is going to play in the World Series as they swept National League West Division Champions the Arizona Diamondbacks in front of their home fans with a 6-4 win in game four of the N.L.C.S.

The Rockies knocked Arizona out of the playoffs when they scored all six runs off Arizona starter Micah Owings in the fourth knocking him from the game with only two outs in the inning. The explosion was capped off by a three run home run from Colorado left fielder Matt Holiday. Holiday went 2-3 in the game and hit .333 for the series. Rockies reliever Matt Herges got the win. Colorado will now have to wait to see who they will face in the World Series. Cleveland leads Boston in the A.L.C.S. two games to one.
