Every game is important but the Colorado Rockies' 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday seemed a little bit like an afterthought. After all, four Rockies made the National League All-Star team, including third baseman Nolan Arenado, outfielder Charlie Blackmon, second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and closer Greg Holland.
It's the most All-Stars the Rockies have ever had in one year. Fans voted Arenado and Blackmon into the starting lineup for the game, which will be Tuesday, July 11 at Marlins Park.
They might get a fifth player on the team. First baseman Mark Reynolds is one of the Final Vote candidates.
Comments from each player are below.
On the field Sunday, after rallying to tie the game on Charlie Blackmon's RBI single, the Diamondbacks won it in the bottom of the ninth. Ketel Marte brought home Brandon Drury on an RBI base hit.
