Rockies Vs. Reds: Colorado In Position To Win 3 In A Row

The Colorado Rockies started off the Memorial Day weekend with a solid 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds to start a two-game winning streak, a rare occurrence for the team this season. The Rockies will get right back at it on Saturday evening with the Reds for a chance at three victories in a row.

Colorado's Jeremy Guthrie (2-2, 5.55 ERA) is out to correct the mistakes of his last start, a 6-4 loss to the Seattle Mariners. He allowed all six runs in six innings, including four runs on three home runs. This time on the mound will be just his third start since coming off the disabled list from a shoulder injury, but it will also be his first career start at the Great American Ball Park.

Cincinnati's Mike Leake (1-5, 5.32 ERA) picked up his first victory of the season in his last start, surrendering just one run in eight innings to the Atlanta Braves at the GABP. He struck out six in the 4-1 win. Leake has made one career start against the Rockies -- in 2011 at the GABP -- and he surrendered two runs on 11 hits in 7.1 innings, for whatever that might be worth. The Reds won that game, 3-2

Game time/date: 5:15 p.m. MT, Saturday, May 26, 2012

Location: Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio

TV: Fox/850 KOA
