Padres Vs. Rockies Preview: Aaron Cook Likely Making Last Start For Colorado

The Colorado Rockies play their final game at Coors Field in 2011 and they will be looking to end a six-game losing streak there. This is one season the Rockies will want to forget about, especially at home. They guaranteed a losing record at home after Monday's loss and have been nearly no-hit over in the last two games.

Anthony Bass (1-0, 1.88 ERA) is making just his second career start, spending his time exclusively out of the bullpen. That first start was his major league debut against the Rockies at Coors Field on June 13. Despite walking four batters, Bass allowed just one run on five hits in five innings. He has walked 18 batters in 38-1/3 innings, though most of those came in his first four appearances.

Aaron Cook (3-9, 5.97 ERA) is likely making his last start for the Colorado Rockies. They've been paying him a salary not commensurate with his performance on the mound. He left the rotation in early September to make room for Drew Pomeranz. This start is way to thank Cook for all that he has done for the team, one of the longest-tenured Rockies.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. MT.
