So far in 2015, the Rockies have been a semi-respectable 16-20 away from Coors Field. That puts them on pace for a 36-45 record on the road. Not great, but far better than the 21-60 mark they put up in 2014. With seven more games on the road coming here in week 13, we’ll likely learn a lot more about whether their improved performance on the road is real or a mirage. Here’s a look ahead to week 13 of the regular season.
