• Weiss did not do his usual pregame meeting with the media Sunday morning because he attended graduation ceremonies at Regis Jesuit High School for his son, Brody. Weiss was Regis' head coach last season. Brody Weiss, a 6-foot, 180-pound shortstop, plans to play college ball at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
• When the Rockies were struggling offensively over a two-week stretch, the poor performance with runners in scoring position was a constant focus of the media and fans. Notably, however, Weiss and hitting coach Dante Bichette figured the team would hit. Bichette said the only time the subject came up was when those outside the team asked about it.
Well, the Rockies went 7-for-14 with runners in scoring position Saturday, have done well in that category for the last three games and going into Sunday they were third in the National League with a .293 batting average in that situation. Just the Cardinals at .330 and the Giants at .298 were better.
