Notes[edit]

  • On June 18, 2014, Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers threw a no-hitter against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers beat the Rockies by a score of 8-0.
  • On July 29, 2014, the Chicago Cubs defeated the Rockies, 4-3, in 16-inning game at Wrigley Field that lasted 6 hours and 27 minutes. Time-wise, it was the longest game in the history of both franchises. Colorado's previous record was set in 2008 in a 6 hour-16 minute game against the Padres. The Cubs' previous record was set in 1982 in a 6-hour-10-minute game against the Dodgers.[12]
  • On August 17, 2014, in the second game of a double header, Michael Cuddyer hit for the cycle. In doing so, he became only the third player in Major League history—after Bob Watson and John Olerud—to hit for the cycle in both the American and National Leagues. His previous cycle came in 2009 while playing for the Minnesota Twins.
