MLB Standings Update: Rockies Falling Behind In NL West

The Colorado Rockies need a good start to their seven-game homestand, which starts with a doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, as the San Francisco Giants are on a five-game winning streak and hold a 3.5 game advantage right now. The Rockies' opponent to start the week is the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have reached .500 with a six-game winning streak. The Rockies are on a three-game losing streak after a weekend sweep by the Milwaukee Brewers.

In May alone, the Rockies are 6-14 after a 17-8 record in April. They've played 16 games decided by one run and have lost 10 of them. When Rafael Betancourt allowed a home run to blow Friday's lead that allowed the game to enter extra innings, which the Rockies to that point were 0-3. Huston Street and ultimately Felipe Paulino lost the team's fourth extra-inning affair.

Almost two months into the season, have the real Rockies shown up?
