The Colorado Rockies' 2007 season started off with the team trying to improve on their 2006 record (76-86). They finished with a franchise record of 90 wins in 163 games and earned a playoff berth as the National League Wild Card team. The Rockies swept their first seven playoff games en route to winning the 2007 National League Pennant, which was the franchise's first-ever pennant. September was considered by many to be the best month of all-time for a ball club, after winning 21 of 22 games in the stretch. It is often compared to the 2004 Boston Red Sox season in October. The Rockies drew 2,376,250 fans for the season, their highest total since 2002. The average home attendance was 28,978.
