On September 15, 1996 — Thanks to Andres Galarraga’s three-run homer the Rockies establish a big league record for runs scored at home. Colorado, which will amass 658 tallies at Coors Field, scores its 626th, 627th and 628th runs of the season when the “Big Cat” goes deep, to surpass the 1950 Red Sox who crossed the plate 625 times.
