Arenado eager to taste Rockies' home cooking

The Rockies' history of dominating at home is simply that as far as Nolan Arenado is concerned. He'd like to experience it. "It's got to be a good feeling, but I don't know it," Arenado said. "You've got to ask teams like the Giants. They take care of business at home most of the time. But we're playing good ball, and if we can play the way we did in the last homestand, it would be really nice."
