The Colorado Rockies lost 12-7 to the Cincinnati Reds at Coors Field on Wednesday afternoon.

With this loss, the Rockies set an embarrassing single-season record in baseball history.

According to @OptaSTATS on social media:

The Rockies led 7-6 today before allowing six runs in the ninth inning.

For Colorado, it was the fifth time in 2024 that the team allowed 5+ runs and gave up the lead in the 9th inning or later despite entering that inning with a lead. That’s the most in a single season in the modern era.

Considering that the modern era dates back to 1920, this is a sad situation for Colorado’s bullpen. In addition to allowing six runs in the ninth inning, Colorado also allowed two runs in the eighth inning, turning a 7-4 lead into a 12-7 loss.

Jalen Beeks blew the save for Colorado, allowing five earned runs in 0.2 innings. It was his fourth blown save and he now has an ERA of 4.45.

After the loss, the Rockies are now 21-40. They will battle with the Miami Marlins and the Chicago White Sox for the worst record in baseball this season and have a good chance of securing the first pick in the 2025 MLB Draft in the lottery system.

The Rockies begin a new series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night at Busch Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. ET when Cal Quantrill (COL) faces Sonny Gray (STL).

Quantrill is 4-4 with a 3.84 ERA, while Gray is 7-3 with a 3.00.
