Braves Vs. Rockies: Can Colorado Make It Two In A Row Against Atlanta?

The Colorado Rockies picked up a much needed win on Tuesday night with home runs from Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki and a strong effort from Ubaldo Jimenez (even with trade rumors still floating around). On Wednesday, they will need to build on this success.

Tim Hudson will attempt to keep the Rockies' bats quiet, which he did on July 7 for 7.1 innings. In his first start after the break, Hudson turned in seven strong innings and allowed just one run. He struck out seven. This will be his third career start in Coors Field, none of which has been good. He has a 10.20 ERA in 15 innings pitched, though two starts came in 2005 and 2006 and the last in 2010.

Juan Nicasio threw seven shutout innings on July 15 to start his second half of the season and took the 4-0 victory. It was far better than his previous start, which came against the Braves in Atlanta. He was chased out of that game by allowing five runs in 2.1 innings.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. MT.
