    Notes

    • On April 17, 2008, Colorado beat the San Diego Padres, 2-1, in a 22-inning road game that spanned 6 hours and 16 minutes.[10][11] It was the longest game in Rockies history, in terms of both total innings and total length of time.[10] 659 total pitches were thrown in the game by 15 different pitchers (eight Rockies pitchers and seven Padres pitchers).[11] The 22-inning affair was the longest since August 31, 1993, when the Minnesota Twins, at home, defeated the Cleveland Indians, 5-4, in 22 innings.[10][12]
    • On July 1, 2008, the Rockies defeated the San Diego Padres, 4-0, in the shortest nine-inning game in Coors Field history - one hour and 58 minutes.[13]
    • On July 4, 2008, Colorado defeated the Florida Marlins, 18-17, after at one point being down, 13-4. The nine-run deficit that the Rockies overcame made it the largest comeback win in team history.[14]
    • On September 14, 2008, the Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers played a game that went scoreless into the bottom of the 10th inning at Coors Field. It was the longest scoreless stretch in Coors Field history.[15] The Rockies eventually won the game, 1-0, as they scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning.
