Rockies Vs. Padres: Colorado Looks For New Beginning After Ubaldo Jimenez Trade

The Colorado Rockies being the post-Ubaldo Jimenez era by concluding their three-game series with the San Diego Padres. A chance at a sweep is possible.

Juan Nicasio (4-3, 4.24 ERA) takes the mound for this Sunday effort. He will look to make up for his previous effort against the Dodgers. In that start, he allowed five runs in 5-2/3 innings. But Nicasio was outstanding in his two starts before that. He allowed one runs in 14 combined innings against the Brewers and the Braves. Nicasio faced the Padres in Coors Field back in June, striking out nine and allowing two runs in six innings.

Wade LeBlanc draws the start after Dustin Moseley was injured. LeBlanc will begin his third stint with the Padres this season, after making one appearance in April and two in June. One of those June starts was against the Rockies in Coors Field. He allowed three runs in 4-2/3 innings, but took the loss, 6-3. He is 9-1 in Triple-A, but he has a 4.30 ERA.

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