Rockies Vs. Diamondbacks: Ubaldo Jimenez Looks For 4th Straight Victory

The Colorado Rockies enter Sunday's finale with the Arizona Diamondbacks on the heels of a disappointing 12-3 loss. Jason Hammel allowed eight runs and then saw Eric Stults allow a grand slam to Justin Upton. It will be up to Ubaldo Jimenez to put the Rockies back on track in Sunday's finale.

Jimenez (6-8, 4.00 ERA), subject of trade rumors, is on a three-game winning streak and pitching just as many expected him to do at the start of the season. Since his July 4 start against the Braves when he allowed three runs in 5.1 innings and was not economical with his pitches, Jimenez has allowed five runs over 20.2 innings in three starts. He has struck out 21 during that time.

Micah Owings replaces Barry Enright for the Sunday start. Owings has mostly pitched in relief for the D'Backs this season and will make his first start since May 26 when he faced the Rockies. In that game, Owings picked up the win after allowing one run in five innings. It wouldn't be surprising if he also did some damage with his bat, once a notable hitter in high school and college.

First pitch is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. MT.
