Nolan Arenado got his first hit in the major leagues and then added two more hits, including a homerun and starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood pitched six scoreless innings as the Colorado Rockies defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers convincingly 12-2 Monday night in Los Angeles.

Arenado had over 30 family members in the stands to witness him put on a show and did they ever get to see a show as the Rockies banged out 19 hits, a new record for them at Dodger Stadium.

Colorado jumped all over the Dodgers from the get go as Dexter Fowler hit a homerun to lead off the ball game and the Rockies followed that up with single by Jordan Pacheco, a double by Carlos Gonzalez, and then a three run bomb by Wilin Rosario, giving the Rockies a 4-0 lead after one inning.

The Rockies continued to pile on the damage in the fourth inning when Chatwood tallied his third hit of the ball game with a 2-run single up the middle giving the Rockies a 8-0 lead at the time.

Colorado improved its record on the season to 16-10 overall and moved one game ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks for the National League West Division lead. The Dodgers fell to 12-13 with the loss.

Colorado will be back at it again tomorrow against Los Angeles as the two square off in the second of a three game set at Dodger Stadium.  Jorge De La Rosa will be on the mound for the Rockies and the first pitch is set to be thrown at 8:10 MT.

Stephen Curry scored 22 of his 31 points in a spectacular third quarter, propelling the Golden State Warriors past the Denver Nuggets by a score of 115-101 to take a shocking 3-1 series lead over the number three-seeded Nuggets on Sunday night.

Jarret Jack, a player who only started a handful of games during the regular season, got another postseason start on Sunday and continued his great play dropping 21 points and recording 9 assists, while Carl Landry added 17 points off the bench for the Warriors who have received contributions from nearly everyone who has toed the court in this series.

Andrew Bogut may have had the biggest impact for Golden State early on in this game as he broke out for 12 points and 5 rebounds in the first half, including a posterizing dunk on Nuggets Center JaVale McGee.

The sixth-seeded Warriors are now just one game away from closing out the Nuggets and can do so on Tuesday night in Game 5 in Denver.

One of the big trends emerging in this series is the Warriors extremely high shooting percentage as once again they shot lights out from the field (55.7 percent) compared to the Nuggets (46.5 percent).

The Warriors have also taken complete control of the momentum in the series, which is surprising because they lost their top rebounder and best post threat in David Lee in Game 1 of the series due to a hip injury and Curry suffered an ankle injury in Game 2 and even got poked in the eye in the latter part of this game by Nuggets forward Corey Brewer.

Ty Lawson lead the Nuggets with 26 points and Andre Iguodala had 19. The Nuggets also turned the ball over 23 times and went just 6-20 from beyond the arc.

The win was the 24th straight for the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center in Denver, and moves their overall record at home to 39-3.

Miller poured in 18 points in an action packed fourth quarter that involved plenty of drama at the end. Denver’s Ty Lawson stole the ball away from Curry and converted on the other end giving the Nuggets a three-point lead with 35 seconds to go. Curry, who set an NBA record with 272 made three-pointers this season then tied the game at 95 when he got Lawson to leave his feet on a shot fake and sunk a 2 from the dead corner with 14.5 seconds remaining.

Miller inbounded the ball for the Denver and got it right back and from there the rest was history.

The Warriors, the sixth seed in the West, playing in their first playoff game in six seasons, lost All-Star David Lee to a hip flexor strain in the fourth quarter when he banged into JaVale McGee. Lee finished with 10 points and 14 boards.

Klay Thompson led Golden State with 22 points and Curry had 19. Wilson Chandler had a great game for Denver stepping up for injured Kenneth Faried, finishing with 11 points and a team-high 13 rebounds and Andre Iguodala added 8 points, 1o rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals.

Game 2 of the series is scheduled to tip at 8:30 MT on Tuesday, April 23 in Denver at the Pepsi Center.

CSU’s Kiah Hicks was named Mountain West Athlete of the Week for the second time this season on Tuesday. Hicks performed well at the CU Invitational last weekend in prelude to the honor.

The Colorado Springs, Colo. native took first place in the shot put with a throw of 49′ feet, 7 inches, which was third-best in the Mountain West this season, and she also took first in the discus with a throw of 178-5.5′, which is a personal record and places her ninth nationally.

This was the third Mountain West Athlete of the Week award given to CSU this season, as Trevor Brown also received the award earlier this year.

The Colorado State Rams will next participate at the Mt. Sac Relays beginning Thursday in Walnut, Calif.
