White Sox Vs. Rockies: Colorado Hosts The Other Chicago Team

The Colorado Rockies enter their home series with the Chicago White Sox having dropped three straight games. After winning on Friday against the New York Yankees in the Bronx, the Rockies saw but losses over the weekend. They then followed that up with a makeup game in Chicago against the Cubs, but Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena each hit two home runs for the victory.

Gavin Floyd throws against the Rockies for the first time since 2008, the year he won 17 games for the White Sox. But in that game, Floyd allowed four home runs, but none of the four who hit the round-trippers are with the team. Oh, and the Rockies still lost, 5-4. Floyd was also roughed up for six runs in a 2006 start when he was with the Phillies. Floyd has had a tough June with a 5.96 ERA in four starts. Overall he has a 4.31 ERA and 1.213 WHIP.

The Rockies will look for Jason Hammel to right the ship. Hammel hasn't looked quite right his last two starts, though he has gone 1-1. On June 17, he did allow six runs to the Tigers, but his offense was able to put 13 run on the board. He allowed four more in a loss to the Indians on June 22. More disconcerting is that he has walked 13 batters over his last three starts. He entered the month of June with a 3.89 ERA, saw it lower to 3.65 and the move back up to 4.13.
