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.

    i think that the rocks now what they need to do the second half of the season they seem to be focused. also i know helton has lost some power but i think he is still the face of the rockies and if the rocks want to win the conference. They will stil be looking up to helton for the pump and the leader ship also it wouldnt surpise me if holliday steps it up a couple notches.
