Rockies hit the break

DENVER (AP) -- The first half of the season has been up and down for the Colorado Rockies.

They swept the Yankees and Mets at home but also had a 1-and-9 road trip that saw All-Star closer Brian Fuentes blow four straight saves.

Now the Rockies are entering the All-Star break at 44-and-44, the second straight season the team has gone into the break at .500 or better. They trail N-L West-leading San Diego by five and a half games in the standings.

Colorado leads the majors with only 33 errors, and Matt Holliday is fourth among major league batting leaders at .341. Colorado is fifth overall in average at .277.

The downfall has been pitching. Colorado's team ERA is 4.71, or 25th in the majors.

Colorado goes on a ten-game road trip after the All-Star break.
