Freeland travels to Tampa Bay for Game 3 in support of Avalanche

Colorado Rockies pitcher Kyle Freeland took a detour on his way to play the Miami Marlins.

Freeland stopped in Tampa Bay on his night off to support the Colorado Avalanche by attending Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final at Amalie Arena on Monday.

"Our friends are worth the trip," the Rockies commented on a photo posted to social media by the team.

Freeland is at the game wearing a Cale Makar jersey, who he said is his favorite player live on a Denver local news channel.

"We had an off day in Miami, so the wife and myself decided to hop on a jet and come on over and watch the Avs hopefully go 3-0," Freeland said.

Freeland, a Denver native, hopes to see the Stanley Cup brought back to his hometown.

"It makes me very proud to see this team and what they've done over the past handful of years," he said.

"To finally get to the opportunity they have in their hands, hopefully they can pull it off and bring the Cup home to Denver."
