The Colorado Rockies have yet to be swept during the second half of the season, but they also have yet to win a series. On Sunday, Colorado looks to avoid being swept by the Cincinnati Reds at Coors Field. The Rockies were shutout, 3-0, on Friday and then lost 9-7 on Saturday, allowing five home runs to the Reds.
The Rockies will need Jonathan Sanchez (0-1, 11.25 ERA) to rebound from his first start with the team. In that game, against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Sanchez pitched four innings, allowing five runs on six hits and four walks in a 6-3 loss. This will be his first start with the Rockies at Coors Field.
Mat Latos (8-3, 4.30 ERA) makes his second start against the Rockies. On May 27, Latos allowed five runs in 7.1 innings, serving up five home runs. Still, he picked up his fourth win in the 7-5 decision. Most recently, Latos threw five innings of two-run ball for his eighth win of the season.
This game will be shown at 1:10 p.m. MT on ROOT Sports and can be heard on 850 KOA.
