With the start of the Major League Baseball season postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we here at The Denver Post took a look at how the Rockies would fare in MLB The Show 20 on PlayStation 4. 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 Friday’s game, the Rockies were 33-15.

It took a while, but the Rockies bats came alive when they needed them most.

David Dahl drove in two runs in the eighth inning to lead Colorado to a 3-2 win Friday over the Phillies in their series opener at Coors Field.

Philadelphia got on the board early when Bryce Harper hit a two-run home run against Kyle Freeland in the first inning. The Rockies’ starter would settle down after, allowing no more runs in six innings of work. Reliever Jairo Diaz (5-1) pitched two scoreless innings to get the win.

The Rockies got on the board in the seventh inning when Charlie Blackmon hit a solo home run to make it 2-1.
