The Colorado Rockies begin their final homestand of 2012 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fresh off a humbling sweep in San Francisco, the Colorado Rockies return home to Coors Field to begin their final homestand of the 2012 season with a four game series against another NL West rival, the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Colorado sends Drew Pomeranz (1-9, 5.06) to the mound. The young lefthander had a rough outing in San Diego, surrendering four earned runs in just three innings of work, including a three run home run to Jesus Guzman.In his only career start against Arizona earlier this year, Pomeranz gave up five earned runs and was unable to escape the fifth inning.
Wade Miley (15-10, 3.10) takes the hill for Arizona. One of the main contenders for NL Rookie of the Year honors this season, Miley has enjoyed quite a bit of success in his first full campaign. He has won all three of his career starts against Colorado, including two starts in Coors Field where Miley has surrendered just three earned runs in 14 innings.
First pitch scheduled for 6:10 p.m. MT. Broadcast will be available on ROOT and 850 KOA
