It’s Over! Colorado Defeats Seattle
Thursday, November 2nd , 2023
Sometimes the winner is the one who got the lucky bounces and the lucky calls, and sometimes the winner is just the one who played better.
“When you play for championships, you have to play better than the team in the other dugout. We did that in this series, and all year. Now we’re the best team in baseball,” said Colorado center fielder Tim Murphy, who was named series MVP.
The Rockies took the series 4-3. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the National League West and a 105-57 record.
Colorado manager Torey Lovullo grinned and nodded when asked to comment on Murphy’s words.
“Tim said it best — we played better than the other team,” the skipper said.
Hometown officials announced they were already planning a “grand celebration” for the winners in the days to come.
