The Colorado Rockies start their final home series with a game against the San Diego Padres. The Rockies enter this series having been swept in a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants. Sunday's loss would have been comical had it not also been sad: Esmil Rogers and Greg Reynolds combined to allow six home runs.

Cory Luebke (5-9, 3.27 ERA) last pitched against the Rockies on Sept. 3 at PetCo Park, but they hit him around for five runs in 4-1/3 innings. Alex White was the opposing pitcher and those five runs helped him out since he surrendered four of his own. Luebke struck out 17 over his last two starts (11-2/3 innings), but is 0-1 with three runs of support.

Kevin Millwood (3-2, 3.68 ERA) continues to pitch his way into a 2012 rotation spot, but we'll need to wait until the offseason to see how that plays out. He pitched the Rockies to their only victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park last week. In his one start against the Padres, Millwood threw seven shutout innings at PetCo Park on Sept. 2

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