Rockies Vs. Reds: Can Jamie Moyer Put Colorado Back On Track?

As quickly as the Colorado Rockies' winning streak, it went away in just a hurry. The Rockies' pitching failed to handle the Cincinnati Reds' bats carefully and wounds up causing a 10-3 loss on Saturday night. The Rockies can change things on Sunday afternoon in the rubber match of this contest.

The Rockies turn to Jamie Moyer (2-4, 4.99 ERA), who just had his worst start of the season. He allowed six runs in 3.2 innings -- including a scoreboard-breaking grand slam to Giancarlo Stanton -- in a 7-4 loss to the Miami Marlins on Monday. He walked four batters as well. It might not be premature to write that Moyer is likely pitching for his life in the rotation. With Jorge De La Rosa's return pushed back and Drew Pomeranz still working things out in the minors, Moyer certainly has a bit more time, but his time is ticking.

Opposing Moyer will be a familiar face to the Rockies: Mat Latos (3-2, 4.35 ERA). After spending the first three years of his career with the San Diego Padres, Latos moved to the Reds through an offseason trade. He has turned in a solid May so far, going 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 30 strikeouts in four starts (23 innings).

Game time/date: 11:15 a.m. MT, Sunday, May 27, 2012
