Rockies’ Ryan McMahon breaks out of fall with “oppo” homer – The Denver Post

Third baseman Ryan McMahon was one of the few Rockies players able to tackle San Francisco right-hander Kevin Gausman on Monday afternoon at Coors Field.

McMahon hit a solo homer to left-center in the second and pulled a turn in the fourth against Gausman, who hit seven strong innings in the Giants’ 10 -5 win. McMahon homered for the third time in 11 games, and the fact that he took the ball the opposite way was a good sign.

“When I can hit balls to center-left instead of cutting them or cutting them, it’s a sign that I’m starting to do some things better,” McMahon said.

He came in on Monday, scoring just .125 / .182 / .300 with a double and two home runs over his last 12 games. Prior to that decline, he had cut .297 / .375 / .406 down over an 18-game stretch.

McMahon has hit five home runs in 62 games since June 16 after hitting 16 homers
his first 67 games.
