We will have a story for every game that had been scheduled until real-life baseball returns. Here’s a look at the virtual Rockies’ preseason preview. Entering Saturday’s game, the Rockies were 34-15.

Nolan Arenado crushed two home runs and drove in five runs as the Rockies beat the Phillies, 7-4, Saturday at Coors Field to extend their winning streak to six games.

Arenado got Colorado on the board early, hitting a two-run shot off of Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola (3-3). He connected again on Nola in the fifth with a three-run blast to make it 5-2.

Outfielder Sam Hilliard put the nail in the coffin in the sixth, hitting a two-run dinger to make it 7-4.

Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez (1-4) gave up four runs on six hits in six innings to earn his first victory of the year. Bryan Shaw, Jake McGee and Scott Oberg recorded three scoreless innings in relief.
